9:16 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
In an update posted at Bungie.net, Al Schilling of MacSoft has revealed the Mac OS X version of Halo: Combat Evolved should reach beta-testing status early this week. According to the news, they've already started "pre-beta" testing and are just waiting for a few remaining pieces to fall into place before moving forward with external testers.
Here's his update:
We've been doing a lot of "pre-beta" testing on Halo Mac while waiting for some of the final details to be taken care of (recompressing videos, etc.). Pixel shaders are working and look great on the Mac hardware. Those who are on the official beta-testing team will be getting CDs on Monday or Tuesday of next week. All-in-all, the game is looking solid. Most efforts from here to release will be concentrated on optimizing for speed.This is just the first of what Bungie.net promises will be a weekly Halo update from MacSoft, so we should be hearing more as Halo moves through QA on its way to being completed.
