Hit Indie Title Chivalry Medieval Warfare Might Come To Linux!

Posted by Chivalry MW Linux!, | Views: 7,011
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a multiplayer action video game developed by Torn Banner Studios as their first commercial title.
After a succesfull kickstarter campaign, the game became very high rated.
It currently is the 31th best selling game on steam.
The game is, well based on Medieval Warfare, it is a 1st person battle simulator. And if I must say, it's quite fun.

User "zoktar" asked the developers on the official forums if there is going to be a version for linux, since it runs on Unreal Engine 3 and Icculus just ported an UE3 engine game to Linux.

The respond was quite positive, they respond with
QuoteSame story as Mac, has to be enough people willing to buy it to justify the cost of porting and supporting it on Linux. I'd love to see it on Linux, although I'd still play on Windows for now.
.

It's a great game, and I personally really hope that they will be able to see that we are ready for it.

While I'm not personally interested in this, it'd be great to see it on Linux.

Still, it does seem like Steam has suddenly changed the whole field. I mean come on, I don't think anyone here has expected this a year ago, UE3, Source, Unity, and so on.

i have had many times close to pressing the buy button on this title on steam, but then i always thought that i have to run it through wine and there probably are some server (protection systems) issues and what not so i always gave up on it.
if it really comes to linux some day. then there is no excuse to not to buy it.

This makes me think about how developers see Wine/dualboot users as if they didn't want the game ported to GNU/Linux, they're buying it anyway. Like they don't care about what their users want, already got their money.

Erm, that quote is from ReMixx. Who is a moderator, not a dev.
