MacPlay has acquired the rights to publish Aliens versus Predator, Gold Edition from Fox Interactive.

The company is preparing to release a Mac version of the title on September 21, 2001, for both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.

The title is based on the Aliens and Predator series of movies. Humans, Aliens and Predators fight a genocidal war for the survival of their race. The action is set in a detailed futuristic environment.

The game includes the Millenium Expansion Pack, an enhanced version of the game containing new levels and weapons that was released for the Windows market.

"We listened to the Mac gaming community when we pursued the rights to Aliens versus Predator," said Mark Cottam, president of MacPlay. "We're excited to partner with Fox Interactive to bring the best in computer gaming to the Mac and are fully committed to our loyal customer base."

The game features over 40 levels in a variety of environments, including Alien Temples and spaceships. It supports up to ten players in multiplayer mode, and features totally explorable scenarios with dynamic lighting-effects and a highly developed artificial intelligence to control the action.
