Free AvP Levels to be Mac-compatible
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

GameSpot has a scored a few new screen shots of levels from Fox Interactive's popular FPS Aliens versus Predator, which should soon be available for the Mac platform. Recently we brought you news that AvP should be completed for the Mac in about a month's time. Many networking and graphics issues delayed the Mac version far behind the premiere of the PC version of this shooter, though this acclaimed thriller will still be a welcome addition to the Mac gaming catalog.


Fox is planning on releasing new levels for AvP free of charge on the Web. We contacted the man behind the Mac port of AvP, Bill "Burger" Heineman, to see if these levels would function on our side of the fence once the Mac version is released. Here's his reply:

Actually, the Mac version has support for the new levels already.


Installing them is simplicity itself. You simply drag the level files into
the Aliens vs. Predator "Levels" folder and then just run Avp, the game will
then automatically move the files where they need to go. (Performing any
PC->Mac translation while it does that.)

This is great news for Mac fans, who love a simple, elegant install. Congratulations to Bill for his progress on this title; we can't wait to run a news story declaring Mac AvP is "gold" and ready for the store shelves.
