Counter-Strike: Source to reach Macs next week

updated 02:55 pm EDT, Fri June 18, 2010

Will allow play between Macs, PCs

A Mac version of Counter-Strike: Source should be available through Steam next week, developer Valve says. The company has generally committed to releasing new Mac games once a week, but missed this week as a result of having to present at E3 in Los Angeles. There the company showed early gameplay footage of Portal 2, due to come to the PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011.

Counter-Strike is a first-person shooter based on the Source engine, pitting teams of terrorists and counter-terrorists against each other as the former try to plant and detonate a bomb. The Mac version should be essentially identical to the current Windows release, but like Team Fortress 2, it will allow Mac and Windows gamers to play on the same servers. The feature is essential given the game's reliance on multiplayer play.
