Ancestors Legacy will not get a native release

ancestors legacy will not get a linux release

Ancestors Legacy the upcoming history-inspired squad-based real-time strategy for Windows, but Linux. The games development is being done by Destructive Creations. While published by 1C Company, coming on May 22nd. So not too far off at all.

Linux release:

“There are no official plans for Linux versions as of now but that can very well change in the future.”

So this email comes directly from 1C Company. Since the games development uses Unreal Engine 4, you would think a native release would be a given. However IC are not ruling out a Linux version. This will not happen for the May 22nd release sadly.

Therefore, sharing more Tux Love via the Steam Discussions is a given. At least to show support for the platform. Seeing there is likely a launch issue. Trying to gauge the reception of the game via reviews and community support.

The development of Ancestors Legacy for Windows will include all four nations. So these are Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, Germans, Slavs – already playable. While final touches are being coming later to the single player campaign. Also multiplayer balancing is getting some fine tuning.

Players will enjoy dozens of hours of gameplay within the single player campaigns. Which are real historical events, and more will also be added soon. Well after the release of the full game. Along with a free update to deliver two more campaigns. One for Germans and one for Slavs, topping the total number of single player missions at 40.

Putting all of the developer’s focus on finalization of the PC build and making sure the release date is met.
