Another day another Natural Selection 2
Linux progress update! Yes it's real, it's coming and here's more info for you!
We have told you a few times about Natural Selection 2 (Latest is here
) and the developers plans to bring it over to Linux, they have now done a new development update blog
which shows it off on Linux!
NS2 on Mint:
NS2 on Ubuntu:
QuoteThey show that not only is Natural Selection 2 now running on Linux, we are even starting to successfully trial actual networked play. In theory, we could have connected Windows players to the same server.
This does not mean we are about to release NS2 on Linux. But we are getting damn close. This is real, we are aiming for true SteamPlay Windows / Linux / Mac support. Max and Dushan are working full time on bringing this dream to fruition, and we can’t wait to share more progress with you over the coming weeks.
Seriously cool stuff, I know a lot of people are excited about this one, me included!
I know graphics are never bigger than gameplay but the graphics in NS2 are really, really good so, that coupled with some interesting game-play will lead to a lot of happy Linux gamers I’veno doubt!
The fact that they have people working on this full time means they have a lot of faith in Linux and considering how popular the game itself is, it's really great for us!
So hopefully anyone who says we are hyping up over nothing, I hope this lays your fears to rest.
