AvP Classic Multiplayer Beta Released (Read 12,222 times)

Rebellion recently re-released their original Aliens vs Predator via Steam in middle of January. That release came without the multiplayer aspect of the game which has since had its first beta released:

* Integrated with Steam overlay
* Uses Steam name
* Host/join games via bare-bones in-game lobby browser
* Can invite and join friends and other players via the Steam overlay
* Currently no way to create private games (will patch)
* Game attempts host migration
* Dedicated servers are not supported or planned
* Supports windowed mode with –w command line switch

For those who have already downloaded the game, just launch Steam up and then AvP and your update should already been there. This is only a beta release and is still somewhat buggy at the moment but that should all be updated in time.

So, Steam charges 3€ for a beta demo for a 11 year old game? Freaking moneywhores!
