XCOM: Enemy Unknown Nearing Beta For Linux
Posted , 28 November 2013 at 5:26 pm UTC / 15803 views
So it looks like XCOM: Enemy Unknown is nearing beta status with a new entry on the SteamDB, not 100% confirmation of course but it looks quite convincing.

If you have been living under a rock we shared that it might come in a previous news post here.

It's getting exciting now, I was hoping it wouldn't be delayed for too long.

How excited are you on this one GOL folks?

It can be fake, to get more money.

Excited enough to buy this immediately, no questions asked.

I highly doubt it's fake. They already support MacOS, unless i'm mistaken XCom uses UE3, which has been used several times now... Looks legit. Worst case scenario: I'll have to wine it. At this price, it's a risk I'm completely willing to take.

It clearly states "Nearing Beta for Linux", not "OUT on Linux NOW!!!", read first ;-)

I already own it on PS3 disc, as well as a free downloadable copy via PS+... But I want it on Linux and my future Steam Machine. It's a really good game.

I don't generally like buying based on promises (and here we don't even have a promise, we just have hope..), but at ten bucks, I decided to stick it in my Steam Inventory until a port is released, or I give up the wait and trade it to a friend for something that does run on Linux.

Well if it is true, then wow. Just a while ago, we had read that it was possibly coming to Linux. Either it was already in the porting process for a while now, or it was a really quick and easy port. Cant wait to try the beta!
