MW: On id's Surprise
6:41 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

We spoke briefly to Graeme Devine of id Software, a huge fan of the Mac (and Mac OS X) who had promised a 'surprise' for gamers at the expo. It turns out that a speech by an ATI executive wasn't the only thing cut from this show's keynote - Graeme's demo of the Quake 3 Arena Expansion Pack running on Mac OS X was axed as well!

He didn't elaborate on the reasons why, or when we might see this game in action; we also didn't catch any details on the Mac OS X port of Quake 3 Arena or the Q3 map editor, Q3Radient.

The Q3A Expansion Pack is designed to enhance the teamplay aspects of this title, adding new weapons, gameplay modes and many maps. There is currently no due date for this pack; it will require the full version of Q3A to play.
