Victory At Sea Ironclad support still is in consideration for Linux besides Mac and Windows PC. According to recent details from developer Evil Twin Artworks. Due to make its way onto Steam Early Access this year.
Evil Twin Artworks is the award winning indie team behind PC RTS classic, ‘Victory At Sea’, Man O’ War: Corsair and Victory At Sea Pacific. Has a long awaited follow up, Victory At Sea Ironclad. Which has been getting some attention during the Steam Games Festival.
Evil Twin Artworks offer details for Linux support
We are deciding platforms at the moment and of course Linux is under consideration. It may not come in from the outset of EA but things are constantly shifting. We are using Unity as we did for Victory At Sea Pacific but it is going to be quite different. With more options to work with for towns and individual ships.
The use of Unity 3D for Victory At Sea Ironclad is no surprise. But it’s interesting to note that Linux builds may arrive during the Early Access stage. The Discussion thread on Steam still doesn’t have an update. But it’s a pleasure to note that Linux is stil under consideration. Particularly since the previous titles have all had native support.
In Victory At Sea Ironclad players have to hunt down Blockade Runners, protecting your resources and fight. While taking place during the time of the American Civil War. So you can play as either the United or Confederate States. Engaging in a tactical game of cat and mouse in a huge open world naval warfare Real Time Strategy.
The focus of Victory At Sea Ironclad is on the American Civil War. Battles took place on both the sea and on rivers. Since the navies of both sides supplied their land forces with resources and transport. Requiring both to work together for victory. The Battles on the water powerfully affected the course of the war. And would be as fundamental as to whom would take victory.
