AVP gets dedicated servers

AVP dedicated servers have finally been released. However, keep in mind they are still considered to be in beta.

Updates to Aliens vs Predator have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted.


* Stability improvements to address rare and infrequent hangs
* Implemented a workaround for missing audio issues with certain hardware (SoundBlaster X-Fi, Realtek onboard, etc.)
* Fixed save games being lost or corrupted if connection to Steam is lost or if user switches to offline play


* Added client-side support for dedicated servers
* Ranked match lobbies will no longer end after every match
* Fixed XP being incorrectly affected by offline play (though only in the local stats; this will be corrected next time you connect to multiplayer)
* Fixed other players sometimes appearing to have the wrong weapon or continuing to fire indefinitely after dying
* Fixed rare issue where players would be temporarily invisible
* Fixed some selection of servers and players in menus sometimes being incorrect
