Get comfy while the art team responsible for the looks of Alterborn guides you through the nuances. While they are creating a visually appealing game world. All in a genre filled with darkness and a dire setting. Devs will reveal few bits of characters currently in development. Including settings and coming features of character customization. As for Linux support….
However we do plan on to do Linux-focused tests in the near future. We’ll give it some time and if we’ll make it works like a charm on Linux, you’ll surely be able to launch it on it.
This is the developer comment on the Alterborn forum. It is hopeful since Unreal Engine 4 is being used for development. But the game is currently in development. So this is some confirmation that the game will work on Linux. Despite it not being clear if this will be a native build or Proton. Still, looking at the trailer, I’m already hooked.
