"CODEWEAVERS RELEASES CROSSOVER GAMES 8.1 FOR MAC AND LINUX Latest "Zombie Mallard" Release Features Support for Left4Dead 2; Free PC Giveaway

"SAINT PAUL, Minn. (November 18, 2009) - Despite a crazed assault of zombie playtesters on their headquarters, CodeWeavers, Inc., a leading developer of software products that turn Mac OS X and Linux into Windows-compatible operating systems, today announced the release of CrossOver Games 8.1 for both Mac and Linux, available immediately.

"CrossOver Games allows Windows games to be played on Mac and Linux PCs without the need for a Windows operating system license.

"The newest version, codenamed "Zombie Mallard", allows CrossOver customers to play the fervently anticipated sequel to the runaway hit Left4Dead, appropriately named Left4Dead 2. "Frankly, that's all we need to support to justify a new release," said Jeremy White, bloodless President and CEO of CodeWeavers. "We had the zombies practically beating down our doors to be able to run the sequel. We're particularly pleased that we were able to support Left4Dead 2 as soon as it was released. In this way, Linux and Mac users can also do their bit to stave off the effects of the apocalyptic zombie plague sweeping this nation."
