BlueMammoth Games the developers behind Brawlhalla have stated that a Linux port will follow the PS4 launch this summer.

For those who do know know. Brawlhalla is a 2D eternal battle arena free to play game for Mac and Windows PC. Players compete with their greatest warriors to prove who’s the best. Every match is an epic test of skill, speed, and strength, and each victory brings additional glory and bragging rights to the winners.

These slugfests are salted with powerful weapons and gadgets. Fighters scramble to grab swords, axes, hammers, blasters, rocket lances and more. Every weapon changes your play style and your options. Gadgets like mines, bombs, and spiked spheres add even more danger into the mix, letting fighters change the course of battle with a well timed-throw or carefully laid trap.

Features:

Brawlhalla is a 2D platform fighting game featuring both online and local singleplayer/co-op modes.

  • Online Ranked 1v1 – A personal test of skill where you match up against a single opponent to claim untold levels of personal glory in Brawlhalla.
  • Online Ranked 2v2 – Bolster your ranks with a friend to prove your mettle, wit and teamwork in frenetic 2v2 battles.
  • 4 Player Online Free for All – Ranked or casual matches where four fighters enter, but only one can win.
  • 8 Player 4v4 & FFA – Because the only thing better than four legends vying for bragging rights is eight legends battling for bragging rights.
  • Local Free for All – Up to 4 players can play in free for all mode on one computer – perfect for friendly face-offs.
  • Local Custom Teams – Team-up on your local machine, by adding up to 4 bots into the mix for living-room level mayhem.
  • Local Single Player – Square off against bots in a three game tournament series. Perfect for warmups or score grinders.
  • Alternate Game Modes – Brawlball, Bombsketball and more provide ‘casual’ ‘party game’ ‘just for fun’ alternate game modes with completely different objectives and just as much competition.

Brawlhalla is run on it’s own original engine,” outlines Blue Mammoth. “We’re currently porting that engine over to PS4. (will be finished Summer). After that process is complete we’ll be working on creating a build for Linux.”

Developers who brave their own game engines often dismiss multi-platform support. Fortunately Blue Mammoth are on the other side of the fence, keen to expand their market reach. Luckily, this includes Linux.

Brawlhalla is expected to always be 100% free-to-play, with no pay-to-win advantages and no in-game purchases to keep you from the action. Currently on Early Access for Mac and Windows PC, development continues to improve and a final release is expected by the summer. Stay tuned.
