Wild West Survival open world survival releases on Early Access for Windows PC, but Linux is coming. Thanks to recent details from developer Altair Games. The games now live on Steam.

Wild West Survival open world survival game with a huge world. So it is up to you to survive the wild west. Since you will have to devel into crafting, hunting, farming, and fishing. Not to mention both building and raiding too. When survival is feasible, prosper the wild west by building towns throughout the maps.

Of course Wild West Survival pings the attention. Therefore, reaching out to developer Altair Games, I’m surprised by the reply.

…the game was made in Unreal Engine 4. I’ll be adding more content and functionalities to the game. Including multiplayer and platform support for Linux / Mac / Mobile.


Probably within a couple of months. I have some features which have higher priority. But it will definitely be on Linux for sure.

Alright, so first off, Wild West Survival has been on my radar for a while. At first, the game engine has the look of Unity 3D. But it’s a pleasure to see Unreal Engine 4 in the mix. This will also gameplay more accomodating for multiplayer.
Linux support is due to release sometime within the year of development. This is how long the game is due to be in Early Access. But there is no time frame yet. So stay tuned.
Until that time, I can confirm that Proton support works very well. Which is similar to playing a game such as Satisfactory, but less graphically intense. But due note, the game is only singleplayer for now. And runs pretty smooth.
