Rocket League should be on Linux before the end of December

A forum post from one of the Rocket League team has stated that the game will be on Linux before the end of December.

Taken from here:
QuoteLinux version should arrive somewhere before Dec 31st.


I do wonder what's holding it up, as they stated at the start of November that it was almost ready, but what that means to a developer is probably quite different to our expectations.

About the game
Soccer meets driving once again in the long-awaited, physics-based sequel to the beloved arena classic, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars!

A futuristic Sports-Action game, Rocket League, equips players with booster-rigged vehicles that can be crashed into balls for incredible goals or epic saves across multiple, highly-detailed arenas. Using an advanced physics system to simulate realistic interactions, Rocket League relies on mass and momentum to give players a complete sense of intuitive control in this unbelievable, high-octane re-imagining of association football.

I can't wait to give it a go, so hopefully I will be able to dedicate some time to it when it arrives now I'm finally getting through some of my backlog. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Should? SHOULD? Seriously? A lot of games SHOULD have come out already...

I am getting more and more the feeling that the porting of new games to Linux is getting slower and slower.
and more ports are getting canceled.

In this phase how its now going, i am little concerned that the Steam Machines ever will succeed.
Lets be Honest, the Steam Machine launch date, was not a success, and the Linux platform is still extremely lacking good tripe AAA games for the average consumer. For us Linux enthusiastic people the Linux gaming market is better than ever, but for the average consumer is really not mind blowing, little more underwhelming.

I think when the Content will not improve soon, the average consumer will ignore the Steam machines because its not appealing for them and developers will drop Linux support. because lack of interest (action, reaction scenario).

And in the end the Linux Gaming ecosystem, will be like a sick patient that is waiting for its dead.
I really hope that Valve, has a really good game strategy and will blow new excitement in the Steam Machine platform, because how its stands today the average consumer will not care.

I have my Hopes in Valve, they have a long breath if it comes with new products =).

What to you guys think?,If you see this from a average consumer perspective for once, and don´t look with you Linux glasses on.

From the average game consumer perspective, I'd hardly have realized there was any release. It was mentioned in the (paper) PC games magazine I'm reading (Gamestar) in a short news messsage, along with a one page rant why it won't be successful. The Steam Controller had more coverage, while the Steam Link to my surprise had about none at release.

I'm glad we've got an estimate! Looking forward to giving myself a late Christmas present!

3 Reasons Steam Machines are better than Sony and MS consoles and 1 day someone will remind "average consumers" they at least have a choice now (which is better than no choice)!

1. I CAN PLUG IN ANY WIRELESS KEYBOARD AND MOUSE AND PLAY IN-FRONT OF MY TV. (none of the others can do that)
2. The games are on average 1/2 the price of their PS store counterparts, and on a sale day sometimes a fraction of that.
3. I like gaming consoles because its NOT your traditional desktop & therefore no distractions when you just want to play, I work in-front of a computer all day, the last thing I want to do is play with those distractions right there... (some of you dont have that problem - then enjoy your childhood).
4. Every console has gaming limitations, some games supported and some not, if you like the games that Steam Machines support then thats the console for you; else be prepared to cough up top dollars for your latest AAA games (+ PS plus + Season Pass & enjoy).

Sorry off-topic again everyone. Looking forward playing Rocket League on Steam. :)

Can't wait for this to arrive, the first game was a total blast on the ps3.

But is it confirmed cross platform multiplayer support?

I don't care about this game too much, but I can't wait for Arma 3 to be officially released no more!
