Linux Support:

We’re developing in UE4. Currently, we’re focused on Windows. But want to bring Robot Champions to as many platforms as possible.
We’ve had several people report successfully using Proton to play PC. And that’s what we’re currently recommending to Linux users.

The use of Unreal Engine 4 for Robot Champions is no surprise. But this also makes the use of Proton possible. At least until the native Linux release is available. You can play the pre-alpha demo on Steam right now. Likewise, the game runs great for an Alpha build.

In the year 2064 robot combat has become the ultimate sport. As Roboteers from across the planet build fierce fighters. And then battle in hazard packed arenas for gears and glory.

So welcome to the greatest show on Earth. Get ready to bash, smash, rip and flip your opponents.
