holy purge co-op horror survival game holds hope for linux support with windows pc

Holy Purge co-op horror survival game holds hope for Linux support with Windows PC. Due to details from developer Celeritas Games. Currently just announced via Steam.

Holy Purge is a co-op horror survival game for up to 3 players. While players unite holy forces to stop an evil plague from consuming a medieval village. Unravel Witchcraft, fight off werewolves, and escape the reaper of souls. This is the premise and what also caught my attention about the game.
However, it seems that Linux support is already in consideration.

I believe Unreal supports package linux versions. I’d have to look into the process. Perhaps. after windows launch we could try.

This is the statement in the Steam thread. Holy Purge also holds hope for Linux, seeing the game is developed in Unreal Engine 4. Offering an attractive art style, a variety of beasties, and multiplayer. The short teaser trailer is what really caught my attention. Which may also inspire you to cast your vote via Steam.
