CrossOver Games 8.1.0 beta 1 adds Left 4 Dead 2 support

updated 11:30 am EST, Mon November 16, 2009

Also intros rough Modern Warfare 2 compatibility

CodeWeavers has posted the first beta of CrossOver Games 8.1.0, a significant update to the company's Mac virtualization software. The program runs Windows games within Mac OS, potentially eliminating the need to use Boot Camp, or even own a copy of Windows. Version 8.1.0 is concentrated on support for Left 2 Dead 2, set to be released November 17th. COG owners should already be able to play the demo.

Early compatibility has been added for the first-person shooter Modern Warfare 2, though CodeWeavers describes the code as "not quite ready for prime time." Other changes include fixes for Guild Wars as well as miscellaneous audio problems. The software requires an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.4, and typically costs $40.
