AvP Fixed, Back in Testing
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Aliens versus Predator saga continues... Last we heard from programmer Bill "Burger" Heineman, the game was in the final stages of testing at Fox Interactive, the title's publisher. And just recently, a bit more prodding on Usenet has brought forth more details about the status of this port. Apparently Fox found a few bugs in the final candidate release, but now it's back in their hands, awaiting final approval. Here's the post to Usenet by Heineman:

Let's see, fox handed me a bug sheet with 4 issues today (All very minor
issues) and I'm sending a new build off to them with all issues fixed. It's
really awaiting Fox to put it in a box and ship it.
If all of the bugs were really that minor, there should be not too many more delays until the title heads into full production. Great news for anxious AvP fans, though we're sure many of you won't believe it till it's actually been sighted in stores.

In related news, another level pack for the Gold version of the game has been released, according to AvPNews. We've confirmed in the past that the Mac version should have no problems using PC add-on maps. This is the fourth such set of extra levels released so far, with eight free maps available overall; there is sure to be more in the future. We'll be sure and keep you updated on the status of this game as it finally nears actual duplication and shipping.
