Police Infinity looks like a promising start for a new FPS that's available on Linux. It has just released into Early Access.

It's early days yet, but I think it looks promising. It doesn't look like a big asset store rip-off like a fair few FPS games released into Early Access. I am keeping an eye on this one for you.

They have a nice roadmap set out for future content, so hopefully they will be able to keep going and not vanish like so many others do.

Has anyone tried it? It's in my watch list for now.

UI is quite cluttered and buggy. I can't even connect to a server - it just says "Conecting..." and stays there till I Alt-F4.

Edit: the system requirements for Linux aren't even listed except "Broadband Internet connection"

Usually generating minimum system requirements requires having some test machines around to determine what hardware performs well. In all likelihood their devs compiled it on Linux, checked that it ran on someone's box, and then said "Okay, good enough!"

No single-player or even co-op. This is a vs-only game.

Guessing from the trailer it is yet another CS(GO) clone.

Guessing from the trailer it's more likely to be a 1.6 clone >.<

I bought it, its a bit basic at the moment but plays ok, i would not put it in the same class as counter strike, more the look of counter strike/swat 4 but plays more like quake 3/ut 2004 but without the jumping as it don't have jump, so far i have had zero real problems, the game has no connection problems for me but i did see a topic about opening NAT for some win 10 players, the dev's seem to be pushing patches real quick and at some point will add bots, also dev's may at a later time add a single/co-op swat 4 like gameplay, so i read somewhere.
