Desperados III confirmed to be coming to Linux this Summer

By - | Views: 21,143

Today, Desperados III from Mimimi Games and THQ Nordic releases on PC for Windows but it's now confirmed to be heading to Linux and macOS too.

On Twitter, THQ Nordic mentioned how multiple big updates are already planned to launch across July and August and in the same tweet they also said, "Additionally, there will be an update this summer, adding Mac & Linux support."—awesome! Considering Mimimi Games did a great job on Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun I'm keen to see Desperados III on Linux.

Check out the release trailer below:

Fantastic news! I started playing Shadow Tactics last week, I'm loving it, and would love more of the same in a wild west setting.

Their PC debut was actually The Last Tinker, which is also available for Linux, and is sort of a 3D platformer with training wheels. I enjoyed that one a lot to, so I think they have a great track record so far.

Yes! Fantastic news indeed.
I'm glad they bring Desperados III to Linux as well.
Shadow Tactics already is a great game. But I'm a sucker for Westerns and think that I will enjoy Desperados III even more.
