Battle Bands deckbuilding offers hope for aspiring Linux gamers with Windows PC. All due to recent details from developer Aerie Digital. Currenlty available via Steam Early Access, holding onto 100% Positive reviews.
Aerie Digital has announced the release of Battle Bands. The multiplayer deckbuilding game takes place in a music fantasy land. Go solo or take on the world with friends in this amped-up battle of the band’s experience. Craft righteous decks, strategize with band mates, and kit your crew out with the perfect gear. All due to making it to the big time.
This is the premise behind Battle Bands. However, it seems Aerie Digital has insight into Linux, but…
We would love to at some point but ports are more likely near the end of early access. With Linux or at least proton compatible build being on our list.
So, we will not see a native Linux build during early access. But we will have some form of native or Proton support. Clearly, the developer already has an eye on the Steam Deck. And quite honestly, with success already, I’d expect to see a Linux port. Plus I’m really keen to see the project evolve.
