Battlerite goes Free to Play, what about Linux?
Independent developer Stunlock Studios announced some signicant news. Since their team arena brawler Battlerite has now officially left Early Access. Also the gams now a full free to play commercial launch on Steam for Windows. To celebrate, the studio even unleashed a launch patch. This features a brand new champion, ‘Thorn.’ While including 200 new items including rare weapons, outfits and victory poses. Even legendary color variations and seven additional music tracks. So you can now unlock and master a roster of powerful champions. Then fight side by side with your teammates in quick skill-based battles. Proving that you deserve to stand victorious in the Battlerite arena.
Linux support for Battlerite?
No positive answer here, still no news regarding the port. 🙁
We have other obligations for the coming 12 months. But I hope things looks different then, would
love to see Battlerite on all platforms.
So I can’t really fire shots at Stunlock Studios. The developers are at least honest about their intent. The question for Linux gaming is the fact the engine of choice is Unity 3D. So yeah, I know what you’re going to say. Since we’ve been waiting for the native release since October of last year. But the studios has other, bigger intentions. So we wait for Linux support. Until then, we have a Windows build that is worth playing in WINE.
