Nuclear Dawn FPS/RTS Hybrid Open Linux Beta Should Hit In A Few Days

Posted by , | Views: 7,765
Originally due to start today the open beta for Nuclear Dawn the FPS/RTS game should hit in a few days!

We reported the game to you a few times (including with screenshots here) and it has hit multiple delays due to various issues over time, now though it looks to be hitting our platform in just a few days time.
QuoteSome technical difficulties may delay this by another day or two. Stay tuned.


About - Their description not mine!
Nuclear Dawn is the first game to offer a full FPS and RTS experience, within a single gameplay model, without crippling or diluting either side of the game. 

As a soldier, explore war-torn post-apocalyptic landscapes, modelled on modern cities, and take the fight to your enemies as armoured, assault or stealth infantry, using various weapons across ten distinct load-outs to accomplish your objectives. The first person shooter action in Nuclear Dawn is hard, fast and unforgiving, with weapons that rely on skill and tactics more than on twitch reflexes and map memorization. 

Then, take Nuclear Dawn above the action, and play as the commander. Organize your fellow players in squads, and assign them to tactical objectives. Plan the resource routes for your army, and production of your structures for forward deployment. Exploit the terrain and resource point locations to block your enemies’ advance, and crush their plans in an iron fist. Research and implement new technologies to give your soldiers the edge on the battlefield, and set up forward bases to lead the assault on your enemies, with a full complement of defensive and offensive structures to choose from, to build your perfect fortress. 

Some of you pointed out before their description is a bit flawed, what was the first RTS/FPS hybrid to not cripple one side to favour the gameplay of another?

Are you waiting on this one? I sure am!

You can grab it on Steam now cheaper than a pizza take-away!

I'm definitely looking forward to it! Still need time to finish Metro Last Light

On the server side of things, will we be separated from Windows users? Or will multiplayer be cross-platform? I ask this, because the servers aren't always full, and for me at least, it can be a bit of an issue to find a server with sufficient players.

I don't know why we're getting so many articles on such a mediocre game. Natural Selection 2 is far better balanced, more active, still being updated and plays better since it encourages teamwork.

So of us have never tried it and want to?
