Hard Reset Redux Linux port looks unlikely

Hard Reset Redux Linux port looks unlikely according to developer post

Hard Reset Redux has been showing some amicable #support on SteamDB regarding an #upcoming Linux #release. Now it seems the developers have issued a statement on the Steam Discussions regarding the port.

The post from developer KriS:

“I’m not aware of any plans to port HR to Steam. HR isn’t popular enough to justify the Linux port.”

This news release came on Wednesday last week, but no further updates have been issued by the developer regarding the Linux port.

The acclaimed First-Person Shooter returns fully upgraded, and more beautifully challenging than ever. Hard Reset Redux is a brand new version of the cyberpunk classic that includes all the content of previous editions, and adds new improved gameplay, enhanced visuals and additional content to make this the Definitive Edition of Hard Reset.

Hard Reset Redux is an action-packed and hardcore single-player shooter which embraces the best qualities that the genre has it offer. It includes over-the-top destruction, loads of enemies, great weapon variety, a challenging campaign and a beautifully realized cyberpunk setting. Having been originally developed to shake-up the shooter scene on PC, Hard Reset now returns to do it again on a new generation of hardware.

Believe it or not, this is not to say a port will be entirely passed over but right now it does not look good.
Ideally, as in most cases, native ports depend on sales and the demand from the community. And given the current Steam & Game Stats, Hard Reset Redux does now show up in the mix.

Devolver Digital reveals twelve minutes of Shadow Warrior 2 gameplay

shadowwarrior2-twelve-minutes-of-gameplay-for-linux-mac-windows-pc

Shadow Warrior 2 looks like #superb action game that does #firstperson melee #combat rather well. And the environments look fantastic, so we are excited for the the sequel. In the mean time, here is these twelve minutes of blood, banter and burning demons.

Features

  • Blades and Bullets: Lo Wang delivers his own brand full throttle brutality with an expanded array of over 70 lethal blades and explosive firearms to overcome the demonic opposition. Become a whirlwind of steel and blood with razor sharp katana, short swords, crescent blades, and hand claws or unleash a hellish symphony of ornate firearms to decimate your enemies.
  • Four Player Co-Op: Battle through the expansive campaign alone or team up as a four-player typhoon of destruction online in campaign co-op mode. Tackle challenging primary missions or thrilling side quests while maintaining your own ninja style with customizable armor, items, and valuable loot from your triumphs.
  • Procedural Environments: The breach between the human and demon realms created an interdimensional hernia resulting in constant shifts to the world of Shadow Warrior 2. Procedurally generated landscapes and paths bring new twists and turns to once familiar terrain and routine missions.
  • Brutal Damage System: Choose your weapon based on the situation at hand and then dismantle everything that stands in your path with an advanced gore system. Use precision blade strikes to separate limbs and heads or switch to heavy ordinance and blow a hole right through colossal beasts.
  • Custom Upgrade System: Upgrade weapons in your arsenal with up to three stones at once to improve performance or augment them with devastating elemental effects. Collect karma, amulets, and armor to enhance Lo Wang’s power and shift his death-dealing artistry into overdrive.

Flying Wild Hog have a solid understanding of the importance of movement, the first Shadow Warrior had a conventional level-based structure with occasional corridors and gardens. But Shadow Warrior 2 uses the environment as an arena, throwing more and more demons and beasts at the player, forcing Lo Wang to dart around while slicing and shooting. Plus the sequel adds new ways to navigate, allowing Wang to ping-pong around the arenas and explore levels better.

“You mess with the bull, you get the Wang”

No release date has been announced yet but it should be out this year, as outlined on Steam.

Shadow Warrior #sequel #officially #revealed on the Facebook page, linked to the refreshed Shadow Warrior website with a logo depicting the number two and the question “Who wants some more Wang?”

Publisher Devolver Digital revealed Shadow Warrior 2 is coming to Linux, SteamOS, Mac and Windows PC. The stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter starring Lo Wang, wielding his devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world.

Five years have passed since Lo Wang shattered the alliance between his deceitful former boss and the ancient gods of the shadow realm. Despite noble intentions, Lo Wang’s efforts to annihilate the darkness corrupted the world, creating a strange and savage new order where humans and demons live side by side.

When a simple mission goes wrong, Lo Wang is drawn into a volatile conflict between a brilliant young scientist, a controversial cult leader, and a terrifying new drug known as Shade. The sharp-tongued hero must once again wield lethal blades, staggering firepower, and archaic magic to purge the world of evil.

A livestream for Shadow Warrior 2 will be available on Twitch June 15 at 3.30pm ET/8.30pm UK.

  • Blades and Bullets: Lo Wang delivers his own brand full throttle brutality with an expanded array of over 70 lethal blades and explosive firearms to overcome the demonic opposition.
