Here's the release trailer:
This is just a short announcement post for now as we didn't have any advanced access on it, so full thoughts on it will have to wait. Thankfully, GOG did provide us with a key which unlocked today. I can at least confirm, that it does seem to run fine on Ubuntu 18.04.
Honestly, from the short time I played so far it already seems quite familiar to Pandora: First Contact, the previous game from Proxy Studios (likely a fair bit re-skinned from it). Not actually a bad thing, just more of an observation. For anyone who has played a game like Civilization, it should all feel pretty familiar except with a Warhammer face.
It does seem like it could be quite good, but I will reserve my proper thoughts once I've had a chance to play more. Just glad to see it run well with Linux support from day 1.
