Ballistic Overkill adds voice commands, Polish language and more

Ballistic Overkill [Steam], the indie online FPS has been updated once again and it now features lots of voice commands and much more.

PSA: We run a server for Ballistic Overkill! Just search for "gamingonlinux" when in-game! You can see all the servers we run here.

I have to hand it to these guys, they are doing Early Access really well with plenty of updates! This latest version continues to make me love what they are doing with it!

New stuff:
- Voice Commands
- Skills Feedback
- More Mouse Sensitivity options
- An option to always run
- Added Polish language.
- Added a subtle feedback on the mini-map when you are revealed in the enemy radars.
- Added an error message when the game is unable to connect to Steam platform.
- Bug fixes

Awesome stuff and I highly recommend picking it up! The game seems to be slowly growing too, as 13 days ago it hit a new record-high of people online, which was only 349, but that's still impressive considering it's Early Access and still relatively unknown. I've never had a problem finding a game and our server has people on it often to the point of being full a lot. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

The real question is whether it supports Polish-language voice commands.

I know you just copy-pasted their changelog, so it’s rather their fault, not yours, but anyway – It’s Polish language, not “Polish” language. You know, it doesn’t pretend to be Polish while not really being, nor is it a title that needs quotation marks. Like, you know, English language, and not “English” one. ;-)

Good point, but in future we do have the spelling and grammar corrections feature for a reason :)

Fair point, I honestly missed it, saw just now, when you pointed out it exists. My bad. :)

Obviously "Polish" language is not real. :P

Multiplayer is much more populated ever since they enabled the quick match functionality.

Maybe it's just gibberish that sounds like Polish to someone not knowing the language? :)

I picked this game up a few months ago on your recommendation, and it has quickly become my go to shooter, and replaced CS:GO for me completely. :) Definitely more than worth the price, and a very high quality Linux version. This game needs more attention for sure.
