the horus heresy legions coming to steam linux mac windows games

The Horus Heresy: Legions game is coming to Windows and Mac this month, but what about Linux. Which getting ready for the Steam release. Coming on March 28, 2019. So not too far off for this Free to Play game. We reached out to developer Everguild for details.

The Horus Heresy: Legions is about building a deck. Which of course means unstoppable Space Marines. Letting you join a lodge to take over the galaxy. Doing so in quick, brutal online duels. While you relive the Horus Heresy. The origin story of Warhammer 40,000’s grim dark future. And naturally, we would want Linux a port too.

Linux Support:

“Thanks for getting in touch. The game is developed in Unity. We are currently focused on Windows and Mac on launch. But we will keep you in the loop regarding a potential Linux port.”

So clearly Everguild is focusing platform support. But the fact that Unity is in the mix. Well that’s just good news.
Even moreso, this email is not a rejection. Since it seems the studio wants to evaluate their release.
Obviously in Linux gaming we already wait for support. But this release has good “potential” for a native Linux port. So make sure to Wishlist on Steam.
