Posted by , 17 July 2017 at 11:22 am UTC / 3683 views
Battlevoid: Sector Siege, from the developer of Battlevoid: Harbinger [Official Site] has been announced and the developer said they will be planning a Linux version. It's been in development for a while and it's expected to release after the summer, but no clearer date given yet.

When asked about Linux support again for the newer title, they said:
QuoteYes, Linux will be supported unless something is awfully wrong when we test it.

It will feature:
  • A Campaign and skirmish.

  • Two game play modes. Domination and Under Siege.

  • Fog Of War.

  • Command a fleet of up to ~10 ship units and up to ~12 stations.

  • Battle for capture points spread across a sector.

  • Choose your own crew composition.

  • Research new technology.

  • Board and capture alien ships and clone them.

  • 6 different sector maps.

  • All the familiar races from Harbinger, and a new race called "Guardians".


Find the announcement here with lots of screenshots and more info.

I'm excited, as I quite enjoyed the previous title and this one sounds like a greatly expanded experience. You know me, I'm a suck for an RTS especially when it comes to spaceship battles.

Reminds me of Battleships Forever - or whatever that free game I played a while back was.
Worth keeping an eye on.
