A developer of Mount & Blade: Warband has confirmed the port on their Steam forum and confirmed it will be a native port too. This is after the hints from SteamDB pointing towards it being possibly.

QuoteIt'll be a native port for Linux and Mac. Warband only but we'll try to include Napoleon DLC too. Open beta will be next week and full release will be July, if all goes well.

About
In a land torn asunder by incessant warfare, it is time to assemble your own band of hardened warriors and enter the fray. Lead your men into battle, expand your realm, and claim the ultimate prize: the throne of Calradia!

Mount & Blade: Warband is the eagerly anticipated stand alone expansion pack for the game that brought medieval battlefields to life with its realistic mounted combat and detailed fighting system.

So, that makes Taleworlds Entertainment a new tux friendly developer.

Check it out on Steam, but we always recommend waiting for the Linux version to buy it. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Yup. Plus, we couldn't even take advantage of the flash sale, as I don't think it would have shown we exist. Gah.

I'm curious, what do you mean? Is it that everyone would rush onto it regardless of platform, that we (Linux) would be miniscule in number?

Or that it wouldn't register purchases done for that platform, and would just count it as an ambigous sale?

I have a whole different reason to enjoy the summer sales this time around. So many Linux titles on sale, with additions of new triple A titles! :D
Hyeron 21 Jun, 2014
The latter. We're not exactly the largest population around on Steam, so every sale identified as GNU/Linux counts. :)

I'm pretty sure Steam knows it if you make the purchase through the Linux client or through a browser on Linux. They will also know when you play the game on Linux. So the stats should be alright. The problem is when one developer makes the original game and another one makes the port, as was the case with Civ V and well explained by Aspyr in the forums.

Nope. According to icculus, what is counted is what platform you play the game the most on in the first week after purchase. Buying a game that does not yet have a Linux client therefore doesn't register as a sale for Linux and doesn't make sense anyway since you cannot play the game.

Indeed, I'm really glad we have two new porting houses in the picture (Aspyr and Feral). I hope they continue to do Linux ports, my money will keep going to them as much as I can give :)
