InXile Entertainment has released a new update for Wasteland 2′s early access build on Steam which adds Linux support to the game.
As well as Linux Support, the update also adds a new area to the game, a redesigned vendor screen, tutorials, a number of combat and balance changes, and several UI tweaks. You can check out the full patch notes here.
The game can be purchased from Steam and played straight away before its official release, thanks to the Early Access program. “This game’s basically feature-complete. We’re including over 40% of the game levels so you can see how Wasteland 2 plays: AI, gear, inventory, creatures, line-of-sight, exploration, world-maps, fast travel, dialogue, and more,” the developer explains. “Oh yeah: you’ll also get to test out the combat system. Hell, that’s a big part of the fun here.
“We’ve got a cartload of quests, memorable characters, NPCs who’ll be happy to join your party for a price (or for vengeance), and all the explosive fun of a radioactive monk without any of that actual radiation. During this early access phase we’ll be adding even more content in the form of new levels, killer weapons and NPCs and of course fixing those pesky bugs that the programmers put in the code. (We keep telling them to stop putting them in because they’re just going to have to take them out later.)
“What’s missing? We still have UI to improve on, more skills to add, more player choice, more SFX and of course more areas to explore and we will hone these elements based on your experiences.”
