Windjammers 2 added lobbies and full cross-play

By - | Views: 23,605

Windjammers 2 is a fun PvP sports game about throwing discs around. It's Steam Deck Verified and works great on Linux and the latest major free update sounds great.

Interestingly though, at some point the default version broke across both Steam Deck and desktop Linux. If you try to run it, you'll get a black screen. However, if you pick the second launch option for OpenGL it does work just fine. There's a bug report already open on Valve's Proton GitHub for it.

Haven't seen any notable issues with the OpenGL version. Playing it today it all seemed great, even the new cross-play worked fine playing against someone on Xbox.

What's been added:

  • Full online cross-play with lobbies and quick play.
  • Spectator mode.
  • Two new characters.
  • Two new modes to help you learn how to play.

Windjammers 2 is available on Steam. It's also 50% off until October 25th so a really good time to jump in.

Windjammers 2 is great. I've got it on the Switch. Lots of fun and it's really worth checking out. The first one is also on the Switch. But if you wanna play it on PC, you can just emulate it with a Neo Geo emulator or use MAME.
