4x4 Public Test , Patch Released
9:37 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Terminal Reality has released the public test for its cross-platform off-road driving game 4x4 Evolution. PC and Mac drivers are invited to duke it out across the desert sands of Arizona in Quick Race, Time Attack, and Online racing modes.
Unfortunately, the Mac version seems to have some networking issues. Mac users can't join a PC-hosted game or successfully start one of their own. Terminal Reality knows this is a problem, and promises a quick fix. According to the company late Thursday night, an update should be out sometime today:
It is because the tracks are different [between] the different beta versions. The Mac [version] should be going out tomorrow.There are several other minor issues to be fixed, but that's why this game has been released as a public beta -- to uncover such problems. The single-player mode seems to be working well, so it's still very much worth a download. Featuring the Nissan Xterra SUV, 4x4 Evolution Public Test 1 allows players to choose their favorite showroom color and tweak their Xterra's performance to suit personal driving styles. Four times of day can be mixed with four weather conditions to simulate a wide array of racing situations.
The 4x4 EVO Public Test 1 weighs in at an easily manageable 23MB. To download the public test head over to Macgamefiles.com We will definitely keep on this one, and let you know as soon as any updates are available to fixing the networking issues.
Update: A 4x4 EVO Patch has been released that fixes the networking issues. Please visit Macgamefiles.com to download the 4X4 EVO beta patch
