Blasphemous confirmed to release for Linux on September 21

By - | Views: 19,190

The Game Kitchen and Team17 today confirmed that Blasphemous will finally launch official Linux support on Monday, September 21 after the original 2019 release.

"Play as The Penitent One - a sole survivor of the massacre of the ‘Silent Sorrow’. Trapped in an endless cycle of death and rebirth, it’s down to you to free the world from this terrible fate and reach the origin of your anguish."

Something we've been waiting quite a while on, as Blasphemous is another game that had Linux as a platform during a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign back in 2017. Linux support was due to arrive with the first DLC which came and went in early August with it still not appearing, so it will be fantastic to have another tick in the box there. Not only because of that, Blasphemous on a whole does look genuinely fantastic and it has reviewed very well overall by users and critics alike. 

Feature Highlight:

  • Explore a Non-Linear World: Overcome fearsome enemies and deadly traps as you venture through a variety of different landscapes, and search for redemption in the dark gothic world of Cvstodia.
  • Brutal Combat: Release the power of Mea Culpa, a sword born from guilt itself, to slaughter your foes. Acquire devastating new combos and special moves as you purge all in your path.
  • Executions: Unleash your wrath and relish in the gory dismemberment of your adversaries - all in beautifully rendered, pixel-perfect execution animations.
  • Customise Your Build: Discover and equip Relics, Rosary Beads, Prayers and Sword Hearts to give you the new abilities and stat boosts you need to survive. Experiment with different combinations to suit your playstyle.
  • Intense Boss Battles: Hordes of gigantic, twisted creatures stand between you and your goal. Learn how they move, survive their devastating attacks and emerge victorious.
  • Unlock the Mysteries of Cvstodia: The world is full of tormented souls. Some offer you aid, some may ask for something in return. Uncover the stories and fates of these tortured characters to gain rewards and a deeper understanding of the dark world you inhabit.

We already have a copy, that the developer provided to us quite some time ago, so you can expect some of our own thoughts to be posted up sometime after the release. Allowing time to play plenty of it of course.

You can find it on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

Good news - Managed to acquire it some months ago, and haven't played it yet - and now, it's on the way to Linux :)

The Game Kitchen, I hope you don't plan to do it like THQ Nordic... Aka "No Desperados III on Linux/macOS for GOG".
