Carmageddon Reincarnation update for Linux

carmageddon reincarnation update ensures linux and mac ports

A generation of gamers coming to the end of a decade of 2D, wireframe, and corridor #combat, it was an awesome introduction to the concept of the “real” 3D #openworld, do-whatever-you-want #gameplay, Carmageddon Reincarnation. And in doing so it also introduced the gaming world to the whole concept of realistic physics and real-time dynamic damage.

Stainless Games decided to  remake of the original title with the support of backers in the successful Kickstarter. This was a unique and yet to be explored idea, but nothing is available with the same reputation of mayhem.

Stainless also outlined Linux support and now the developers have issued a Kickstarter update explaining that native support has not be abandoned.

“We are continuing to work on improvements in a number of key areas, including the long-awaited faster level loading times and further significant performance improvements. So, we’ll continue to roll out updates over the course of the coming months, and more details of dates and what to expect will follow. We will also have updated news on the scheduling of the Mac & Linux versions of Carmageddon Reincarnation.”

And relive all the mangling mayhem with a fabulously updated Action Replay System, with multiple cameras and replay options – it will mean you never miss a pile-up again! Get those movies online and brag about your ped culling achievements. And there will be plenty of THOSE too – oh yes… Achievements, Challenges and Collectibles to hunt down, that’ll keep the whole family entertained for hour upon happy blood and oil splattered hour.

Carmageddon Reincarnation Features:

  • Single Player Career mode
  • Freeplay mode
  • Online & Offline Multiplayer mode
  • CarMODgeddon mods mode

No release date has been announced, but the fact that Carmageddon: Reincarnation is still under development is positive. And as with quite a few game releases, the developers are focusing on the Windows PC build before porting to other platforms.
