Underworld Ascendant [Official Site], the action RPG that's due out this year with Linux support has a fresh trailer showing off some new gameplay.
It sure took them a while to confirm their plans for Linux support, which I'm thankful they have done so now. In addition to that, they recently spoke to me on Twitter as well to reiterate that Linux will be supported, although likely not a same-day release.
Anyway…feast your eyes on the latest shiny trailer:
About the game:
From the creative minds behind the acclaimed Ultima Underworld® series, in Underworld Ascendant®, Paul Neurath and Warren Spector's OtherSide Entertainment is innovating upon the series’ signature player-authored gameplay in bold new ways and bringing the ‘immersive sim’ genre forward in a breathtaking fantasy realm, rife with danger and full of intrigue.
Return to The Stygian Abyss in Underworld Ascendant®, the action RPG designed to maximize player choice. Journey through the unfamiliar. Unlock your creative potential. Utilize your environment to stack the odds in your favor. Devise the ideal plan to overcome the challenges you face or dive in and think on your feet.
With the actual release for Windows coming up in September, I sure hope they are taking feedback on from the likes of PC Gamer who got their hands on an early build and it sounded…rough. Still, I often love games other reviews dislike for various reasons, so I will give it my usual look when it eventually releases for Linux.
