Warborn turn-based tactics game is coming to Mac and Windows PC but seeks Linux support. Thanks to details from developer Raredrop Games Ltd. The games due to release on Steam in 2020.
Developer Raredrop Games Ltd are charging their laser rifles. While they announce turn-based tactics game Warborn.Due to release in Spring 2020 on Mac and Windows PC. As well as Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
As a player you join one of the four unique factions. While they fight for control with 90’s Japanese animation inspired mechas. And above all, they go head-to-head in close-up battle cutscenes.
Yeah I think if there was enough demand for a Linux version. I would definitely consider discussing it with my publisher.
We’re a small team of 3 and I’m the only programmer. Already covering 5 platforms. So it really comes down to a matter of workload for me at the moment.
The missing piece of detail here. Warborn development is using Unity 3D. And the developers didn’t originally have Linux support in the plan until my email.
However, since posting a Steam Discussion post. The tides have shifted and Raredrop Games Ltd wants to see Linux community demand. So you can either share that Tux Love or your +1. But also make sure to Wishlist on Steam. And hopefully, we will get that native port.
Warborn – Announcement Trailer
In Warborn, you assemble and command an army of elite units. Wearing technologically advanced suits of war. Also known as Variable Armour. Observe from a top down view of the various maps. All making a series of different hexagonal terrain tiles. But you call the shots and watch the action unfold. Doing so with dynamic mid-combat cutscenes. It’s really a rather unique anime idea to include in a turn-based game.
Once you have the basics of Warborn‘s tactical combat down, you can test your skills in various game modes:
- Experience the story behind each of the four factions in exciting missions!
- Practise your tactics against AI opponents with adjustable difficulty
- Online Multiplayer!
- Face-off against players from all over the world in Competitive or Casual online matches!
- Map Editor
- The hexagon layout of Warborn‘s maps makes for a very accessible Map Editor that let’s you get creative yourself!
Stay tuned for more information on Warborn!
Warborn is part of our line-up at EGX London 2019. And will release for Mac and Windows PC in Spring 2020. Hopefully for Linux as well with enough community demand.
