Hellraid is a fantastic looking action RPG that is due to launch this year, I got in touch with the developers to see what the chances are of Linux support.

QuoteHello Liam,

We won’t have Linux/SteamOS version of the game at launch but would like to port it after the Windows and console versions are released.

Best regards,
Marcin


That's pretty good news as it was a shot in the dark!

Their new Chrome Engine 6 also supports Linux:
QuoteChrome Engine® 6 broadens the meaning of multiplatform as it now supports the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, Linux and MacOS along with PC (DirectX 10 and 11), Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

It's certainly a possibility.

About
Join a group of fierce combatants and begin your quest for the survival of mankind in this unique mix of first-person melee action, RPG and competitive co-op.

Fight, develop skills, collect loot and craft weapons while exploring a world devastated by demons.

System-generated co-op challenges, loot and enemy spawn points make the game playable for hundreds of hours! Co-opetition also adds an additional layer of rivalry with points and rewards gained for each kill, assist, completed quest and challenge.

Slaughter enemies with swords and axes as a Barbarian. Heal and protect your friends with the Paladin’s defensive magic. Burn, freeze and electrocute demons with the Mage’s staff and kill with the precision of the Rogue’s crossbow.

Features
  • Distinct heroes with unique character development options: Barbarian, Mage, Paladin, Rogue
  • Melee combat enhanced with ranged weapons and powerful sorcery
  • Advanced weapon crafting system
  • 1-4 players co-op with competitive challenges
  • System-generated co-op challenges, randomized loot and enemy spawn points designed to make each playthrough different
  • Unique dark fantasy setting brought to life by Chrome Engine 5 technology


Of course we always suggest to not buy it until the Linux version is released to prevent getting burnt. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

It certainly looks good! I hope it's fun to play as well and that the developers do a good job bringing it over to Linux! Remember, don't buy the title until the game is actually available for Linux.

Clicked all of your links and not one looked like the other. What is a true RPG anyway? A computer RPG? There are many different types of RPGs but that one seems to be one of if not the original definition of a RPG, as opposed to an action RPG, a strategy RPG, and so on.

What is a true RPG? There is no such thing, what one person considers a true RPG another will not.

When it boils down to it any-game you play as a single character is an RPG, since it stands for Role Playing Game, playing as a character is playing that role, so...yeah.
