Black Day releases and likely coming to Linux

black day releases and likely coming to linux ubuntu games beside windows

Indie studio, Helios Production, is proud to announce their shooter Black Day. The games available now on Steam Early Access for Windows, think Sniper Ghost Warrior.

What about support for Linux and Ubuntu?

“I’m ok for a compatibility but not now. Black Day is just in early access and I have many work before to think new platform compatibility.”

Since english is not the developers primary language. The games developed in Unreal Engine 4, so the likelihood of seeing a native port is there. Black Day is going to be in Early Access for about a year. So hopefully we will see a Linux or Ubuntu port before the game releases.
Personally, waiting for a title to get native support loses some interest. Hence the nature of smaller studios and having to port games.
So here’s to keeping hope in developer Helios Production and further platform releases.

Black Day is an exciting new Shooter. Since gameplay takes players to diverse environments and offering extensive customization options. Each to suit a players’ individual play styles.

So in Black Day, players will have the choice between several missions. Each in different environments, with customizable settings (Day/Night, equipment, number and types of enemies, difficulty settings). This allows for both enjoy fun, stealth action or very challenging mayhem (guns blazing?) missions.
