Eador: Masters of the Broken World has been confirmed via a blog post to be coming to Linux thanks to Steam!

QuoteWe always get a lot of requests to port Eador. MotBW to Linux and Mac systems. And, of course, this is our intention as well. But initially we planned to make other versions only after the Windows release. Recent Gabe Newell’s statements made us rethink our plans one more time. If this man puts Linux to such a high priority then we should pay our attention to this matter more closely already at this point.

We’re happy to announce that Snowbird Games starts working with a separate team in order to bring Linux and Mac versions of Eador. Master of the Broken World. We hope that the game will be released on all platforms simultaneously this spring.

That trailer really reminded me of Heroes of Might and Magic, a franchise I truly adore. Gabe really is pushing developers to support Linux, it seems!

Good news indeed, last time I emailed them they said that there are thinking about it and there is a high chance, but it wasn'tr officially confirmed yet.
I can't wait for this game.

BTW, you can already play this first game in the series via Wine (it's a good game, but the graphics is very simple).

If there is a Linux version they have my money, looks like it will be a great game.

Whenever possible, I purchase Linux games from Steam and Desura to show that Linux gamers are a viable market. I just blew my budget buying Crusader Kings 2, but it was to make that point. If 2013 isn't The Year Of Linux Gaming, 2014 surely will be.
