While developer ShotX Studio also confirms day-one Linux support and a February 1st release date. This was not previously available via Steam, but seems to be updated now.
Since people tend to avoid Early Access games. Dead Ground will release at the Beta stage. Which is much closer to the finally release. The thing remaining is balancing.

While the games procedurally generated each playthrough will be unique. Well as original as one can hope for in the genre. This also means you can expect randomly generated guns, skills and augments. Players will also have to travel and collect scrap. Since survival will have you finding water, managing inventory and upgrading your base to survive. Which seems to encompass somewhat similar setting to Atom RPG which is also on Early Access. Hence the further Fallout vibe of say Ashworld.
Place and upgrade the towers wisely. So use your hero to defend it in this fast-paced game. A perfect blend of action and strategy. You will face permadeath, lots of brutal enemies and tough boss fights.
