WRATH: Aeon of Ruin finally has a release date for February 2024

After being in Early Access since 2019 and multiple launch windows missed, the Quake engine powered retro shooter WRATH: Aeon of Ruin finally has an actual real release date. No, I can't quite believe it either.

The developers have been putting out semi-regular update posts on Steam on their progress, but it hasn't stopped negative user reviews on Steam building up over time due to the lack of any actually released updates. Looking on SteamDB, the last public update released for the game was in January 2021 — that's a long time for players to wait on something new for an Early Access game.

Anyway, now it's set to launch on February 27th, 2024 and they put up a new trailer:

They did release the source code some time ago that contributor Samsai took a look at, which also hasn't been updated on GitHub since 2021 as well. It's not clear if they still plan to provide Native Linux support, but at least if they keep the code up to date people who want that should be able to run it easily enough. Otherwise, Proton will likely run it quite well directly from Steam (it has a Platinum rating on ProtonDB and is Steam Deck Playable).

Where to buy:

Humble Store

Steam

Psyched for this. Looking like it will really be worth the wait.
