Violent twin-stick shooter 'Hatred' is now officially out for Linux

By - | Views: 10,198

After it gained a Linux beta back in 2015 it didn't seem like it would ever leave, but developer Destructive Creations has now given the Linux version of Hatred an official release.

It's worth noting, that it didn't really change much during the beta and they have no fixes planned for the Linux version unless "you find something really broken".

About the game:

Hatred fills your whole body. You’re sick and tired of humanity’s worthless existence. The only thing that matters is your gun and the pure Armageddon that you want to unleash. 

You will go out for a hunt, and you will clear the New York outskirts of all humans with cold blood. You will shoot, you will hurt, you will kill, and you will die. There are no rules, there is no compassion, no mercy, no point in going back. You are the lord of life and death now - and you have full control over the lives of worthless human scum.

You will also run, you will need to think, you will need to hide and fight back when armed forces come to take you down. You will have no mercy for them, because they dare to stand in your way. 

Only brutality and destruction can cleanse this land. Only a killing spree will make you die spectacularly and go to hell.

Still strange how controversial the game was early on, with Valve removing it from the old Greenlight system and later reinstating it with an apology. There have been plenty of worse games released before it and likely will be plenty more that follow.

Find it on Steam.

Is a story behind this psychotic shooter? I mean, sounds like a rogue like version of Postal.

I had been hoping this would come to Linux for a long time. Bought as soon as I could for full price.

Bought it few days ago.
I highly recommend to install the color mod from the Workshop, or just give it a try. IMO it looks much better than the default BW-ish theme.

It's an infamous game alright, and a shitty one at that

EDIT: Oops, I totally misinterpreted your question. There is no story, it's just a guy that wants to kill as much as he can, the end.

Currently, 76% off on GreenManGaming. Hmmm, maybe worth a punt.

Anyone finding it broken or problematic on Linux?

EDIT: And now back up to full price again :/

I haven't played it for a while, but I found no major problem with the game on my system. Some of the workshop mods didn't work at the time but that may be fixed now.

Quite a good shooter and nowhere near as controversial as its infamy might suggest :-)

Well, this is very good game with good reviews on steam (77% positive). Just remember good game but not for all, if u like games like Postal then u can like Hatred also, if not then probably this game is not for u.

Quotethey have no fixes planned for the Linux
Not only for Linux, also for Windows, because this game is done. They finish it and not plan to update it anymore for any platform. They just working on other titles.

The only thing that don't work for me is thumbstick buttons on a xbox 360 controller, so you can't run

No, just no.

I didn't play Postal when I was an angst-driven youth and I'm not going to play Hatred when I'm a happy middle aged father.
