RTCW Map Pack Released, 1.33 News
6:00 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

The Map Pack, part of Return To Castle Wolfenstein - Game Of The Year Edition for the PC has been posted online at various PC web sites along with a 1.33 patch for the PC version. Luckily for Mac users, the Map Pack is compatible with the Mac version of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. The 1.33 patch for the Mac, however, will probably be out shortly (read below).

The Map Pack includes the following additional multiplayer levels:

  • Trenchtoast (mp_trenchtoast)
  • Icelab (mp_ice)
  • Chateau (mp_chateau)
  • Keep (mp_keep)
  • Tram Siege (mp_tram)
  • The Damned (mp_dam)
  • Rocket (mp_rocket)
  • The map pack can be downloaded via the link provided below. It is 49MB in size. Aspyr Media has posted the following information regarding the Map Pack on their web site:
    Question: What about the new Game of the Year maps? Can I use them?

    Answer: Yes, you can use those maps. You can even download them from the PC sites, but you will have to use an extraction utility to pull files out of the PC exe file. One such utility is UnZipper.

    We are looking at repackaging these map files to a more Macintosh-friendly format and finding a host for them. Watch this space or the downloads tab of the game's page for more information.

    Aspyr also mentions on the web site that they are looking into updating the Mac client to 1.33:
    Question: How about the new 1.33 update, I see servers with that version, but I can't join them, saying something about "invalid .pk3 files". What does that mean, and how can I play on those servers?

    Answer:We are investigating this now, but it does seem as though the Macintosh client cannot join those servers.

    We'll be sure to keep you posted on any more news regarding the Map Pack and the 1.33 patch.
