Subsiege will be coming to Linux, Mac and PC

Subsiege will be coming to Linux, Mac and PC

Headup Games #announces in cooperation with the Munich #IcebirdStudios the signing of an exclusive publishing agreement.

In the course of the cooperation Subsiege will be released in early 2017 on STEAM. A precise date will follow soon.

Subsiege previously known as Submerge – is an online #strategy game based on the Unreal Engine 4 which requires skilled controls and complex tactical knowledge in a refreshing and grasping deep sea setting. The game is a new approach to the modern MOBA/RTS playstyle and matches classic RTS with competitive MOBA-gameplay. The ambition is to create a challenging and rewarding gaming experience that demands elaborate maneuvers, skilled reactions and predictive strategies.

The head attraction of Subsiege compared to other representatives of the classic MOBA genre is that you have to control multiple units simultaneously while keeping your eye on the pressure level of your shrinking oxygen resources.

Barricading yourself is no option because you are only able to get hold of the essential resource through active scouting and offensive plays. Command your handpicked squad in an excellent RTS-style while fighting off other players on persistent servers at the same time. But it’s not all about your rivals… The sunken battlegrounds hold their own dangers: Toxic coral reefs, a threatening fauna and deadly creatures of the depth handicap those travelling underwater.

Linux release?

“We do hope so, but currently the studio is working on the windows build. But as with all our games: If it can be delivered, we are all for it ;-)”

So the likelihood of seeing a native Linux build is fairly certain. Looking at Steam, Headup Games have brought quite a few of their titles to Linux.

More information check out the official website. For now, details are limited but stay tune for more.
