Trailmakers releases on Early Access for Windows, but Linux is coming later. So Flashbulb the games developer is excited and ready for the debut on Steam. First and foremost, to clear the air around Linux support.
Trailmakers Linux release:
“We plan on porting the game to linux, but it will probably not be until it leaves Steam Early Access.”
So the vehicle-building adventure will get a Linux release. Which will be at the full release in 2018. Since the games development is using Unity 3D. This is a promising time frame. Even though we have seen that before. But hopes are that Trailmakers is playable via Wine. As soon as details are available, I will update this post.
Adventurers are flocking to an abandoned planet. Which was also a holiday paradise once. Now, harsh weather and dangerous wildlife scourge the land. While things like “hazards” and “unsafe terrain” just need ramps. Well checkpoints and goal posts to become a bona-fide off-world rally expedition. Intrepid explorers require only courage, curiosity, and creativity to participate.

Two distinct single-player modes are available in Steam Early Access. Which are Creative and Expedition. Creative Mode provides infinite resources so tinkerers can construct the craziest vehicles they envision. In Expedition Mode, a challenging campaign tasks explorers with charting this alien planet and reaching the other end of a giant island. Finding the ultimate destination is the easy part; getting there, however, is a different matter entirely. Both modes will expand in the coming months so friends can play together.
Dethroned Mode, an entertaining fusion of capture-the-flag and king-of-the-hill, will be available via Steam Early Access. Making use of Flashbulb’s “Physics-Over-Network” technology, Trailmakers’ multiplayer allows up to four daring adventurers to build and crash intricately-built vehicles into one another and watch the parts fly everywhere, all synchronized perfectly between players.
There’s never only one way to solve a problem. With more than 40 vehicle parts in Trailmakers. This also includes helicopter blades and suspension for off-roading. So if a playerscan dream it, they can build it. A transformer part even enables vehicles to convert into other forms. Vehicle blueprints can be drafted and shared with friends, and Trailmakers is built to support player-made content at full release. Early Access is just the beginning – new skins, vehicle parts, and multiplayer modes are already in the pipeline and will continue to debut as robust, frequent post-launch support.
Steam games release:
Trailmakers is available now on Steam Early Access for $19.99 / €19.99 / £14.99. The games Linux release will take place at full release. So stay tuned.
