    Default Tropico 5 & Blitzkrieg 3 Will Be Released For Linux

    Phoronix: Tropico 5 & Blitzkrieg 3 Will Be Released For Linux

    Tropico 5 was announced yesterday as the latest in a 12-year-old game franchise of this island maker game. What makes Tropico 5 really exciting is that when released in 2014 this construction/management simulation game will have native Linux support. The Blitzkrieg 3 World War II game is also being ported to Linux...

    Tropico 5 and Planetary Annihilation. That means no social life for me in 2014

    I find it interesting that Linux has/is getting a lot of quality strategy games while being mostly ignored by companies that make heavy action/little thinking games.

    edit:
    probably worth mentioning that Europa Universalis 4 came out 2-3 days ago for Linux for anyone that likes good historical strategies.

    Oh that is epic. I love the Tropico series. I can't wait for for Tropico 5 now. I dropped my Windows partition a year ago and gave up on wine. Native Linux games FTW!!

    I loved the Great Dictator impression in the Tropico 5 trailer!

    I bought it and it's simply amazing game. One of the best games I've ever played in my life.

    Well, Strike Suit Zero did come out recently and it seems to be all mindnumbing action. It didn't gain very favourable review though so I'm probably skipping it myself.
    But yeah, strategy games are dominating. I find most of them go completely overboard on micromanagement, so I can't really enjoy them myself

    I want some decent arcade racing, flying, maybe some adventure games.

    Tropico 5 and Blitzkrieg 3 will be two EXCELLENT game addictions for Linux games.

    I consider them both AAA titles in their respective areas, YMMV.

    Never heard of any of the games. But I guess I'll buy the Tropico game... just for the Linux support alone. Would probably never have bought it if it wasnt for that :P

    I guess I'll find it in Steam when it's out

    Here are a few upcoming racing games with Linux support that look good:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...oad-redemption
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...s-arcade-racer

    Road Redemption in particular I am really looking forward to as I used to love the classic Road Rash games back in the '90s. They should be releasing alpha builds to kickstarter supporters who paid $40 or more in the next month or so, can't wait to give it a try. They are still actually taking donations via paypal on their site and putting those funds towards the stretch goals and you still get the kickstarter related tier gifts as well.

    There are already some decent adventure games available via Steam for Linux: The Book of Unwritten Tales and it's sequel, The Leisure Suit Larry remake, and The Raven which was recently released to name a few. Haven't really seen anything as far as flying games though.
