Road Redemption [Steam], the bike racing and combat game inspired by Road Rash has a massive update, but the Linux version is currently behind.

The developers said a few days ago they would like to put the new Linux build out that day, but it seems that didn't happen. Hopefully we won't be left waiting too long, since on Arch the game on the current version doesn't even load for me.

Here's some highlights of what's new:
  • Ability to earn Level Skips in Campaign Mode
  • Intro Story Segment for Campaign Mode
  • Tons of new music
  • Voice acting and dialogue popups
  • Enhanced Mission Details
  • Boss Battles
  • Final Boss and Post-Boss Mission
  • Improved Bike Physics and Handling
  • Improved Diversity in bike selection
  • Character Class Selection
  • Lights on police vehicles
  • Tons more

You can find the full update notes spread across here and also here.

I'm looking forward to the final release, so hopefully it runs well for us. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Luckily, I've got enough other Linux games to keep me content until this gets sorted. Heck, truth be told, I haven't even installed my copy of Road Redemption yet. Linux Lateness is simply a Law of Nature (admittedly, a little known and suspiciously selective one) that determines the release dates of Linux games. I don't remember the details, but the formula involves the amount of entropy in the developer's trousers, or something.

Anyway, thanks for the heads-up, Liam. Please do let us know when they do release the update, yeah? Thanks!

Maybe this game will finally feel complete.

I'm waiting for it to come out DRM-free.

Quoting: ShmerlI'm waiting for it to come out DRM-free.

Shmerl in every GOL thread/article ever. It's now an axiom.

@Luke_Nukem: Only if the game is still not out DRM-free, and I'm interested in it. Otherwise, why should I care? :D
