It's seriously great to see this game starting to support Linux since I am rather vocal about my boredom of quake style shooters.

The port is quite rough though right now I hope they keep hammering out bugs

I played the Beta last week, Multiplayer was the only option available. The main GUI was a mess (for me) and for the life of me, I was unable to change weapons lol. The result was 0 kills and about 20 deaths. =p

My reflexes just aren't the same <sigh>.
