Sherwood Extreme free-to-play crossbow shooter and support for Linux with Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to further details from developer CAGE Studios. Who is gearing up for a Steam release next month.
Sherwood Extreme is a free-to-play crossbow shooter. This also includes bullet time and unreal co-op action. Due to make its way onto Steam Early Access for Mac and Windows PC on Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Also revealed, CAGE Studios will bring the full release version out in Q4 2021.
While this is good news and Sherwood Extreme offers a more unique gameplay. I reached out to CAGE Studios since Unreal Engine 4 is being used for development. While this is not a full out confirmation, there is hope.
…a Linux port is definitely possible, though we haven’t announced promised it yet. As someone who grew up using Linux before other operating systems, it would be pretty cool to launch there too.
Again, not a full-out confirmation, but hope for Sherwood Extreme on Linux, is there. Plus, you can also share your Tux Love or +1 on the active Steam Discussion.
But it’s rather impressive to come across another developer with Linux experience. Surprisingly, it’s becoming more common now, where dev’s have a history with the open source OS over atypical Windows PC. And for a game like Sherwood Extreme, Linux would shine as a more stable choice for a free-to-play title.
