AvP Classic 2000 Gets Multiplayer Via Steam

By John Walker on February 2nd, 2010.

Oh hai.

Just a quickie to say that AvP Classic on Steam now features multiplayer support. When launched last month it contained the three campaigns and the skirmish mode, but the decade-old game wasn’t sporting online fights. And now, rather splendidly, it is. Using Steam’s overlay doodah combined with the in-game lobby, you can arrange games with friends for olden days style entertainment. There’s no dedicated servers, nor plans for any, but I’d suggest this is one occasion where an angry campaign might not be worth the effort. It currently costs a measly £3.
