HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed gets a fix for Linux to play on Windows Servers

By - | Views: 18,859

HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed recently released their Native Linux version and talked up their Steam Deck support, with a small update being rolled out to fix up online play. Now, thankfully, you're able to play online and see all the servers and play with people on Windows.

Previously, the server-list was empty but the developer has looked into and solved the issue so you're good to go. Seems that cross-play with Nintendo Switch is also planned.

I bought this maybe about a week ago and was disappointed when my nephew (running Windows) and I (running Linux native) couldn't connect. Thankfully the game ran and connected fine via Proton, but it's good to know they have the cross platform play working now.

Yeah I grabbed a copy for my brother and me last week. While the CO-OP/BOTS wave/zombie modes worked with him joining using my friend code, playing against/with BOTS got old fast.

Hoping this will help as it's a pretty fun game for some mindless co-op.
