Totally Accurate Battlegrounds got upgraded recently due to needing to implement new anti-cheat, and thanks to that this free to play game now works on Linux Desktop and Steam Deck.
The issue is that they were using EQU8, which is now exclusive to Splitgate. Instead they've switched to Easy Anti-Cheat, the newer EOS version, which they seem to have fully enabled for Linux too. Thanks to that, it will work just fine on Linux desktop and Steam Deck. I've tested that too and yup — works without issues on Fedora Linux and Steam Deck.
Probably one of the silliest games around. It's a Battle Royale like Fortnite, but with wobbly-physics characters
Only quirk I noticed is that on Desktop Linux, I needed to restart Steam before it would actually load. Thanks to the new anti-cheat, hopefully there will be less cheaters too since obviously Epic Games have far more resources to put into EAC than EQU8 would have.
- Up to 60 players (wobblin' around).
- Squad, duo and solo mode (great for first dates).
- Physics-based parkour (the wobblier the better).
- Fun-sized map (for fun-sized people).
- 90+ weapons (including a shallow pot with a long handle).
- Catchphrases (Speak freely in this game... Using 3 words).
- Blessings and curses for those of you who do well (and not so well).
- Limbo (u not dead yet mate).
In the announcement they mentioned how they're also opening up the game for people to host their own servers, so it can continue on potentially forever. This is a great move for a developer to do when they're no longer actively working on a game but I do wish more games just put server binaries out there for everyone but that's an argument and complaint for another day.
Available free to play on Steam.
