Just download the windows 8.1 user preview version and install it, limited support on it, but at least you would be able to play the game, and if that doesn't work, use an old windows 7 user preview, to ensure compatibility. lol

That way you can use win 7 or 8.1 on one harddrive, and linux on another, just don't forget to remove a harddrive when uninstalling or installing another windows, then plug it back in after installed and started up to get to the desktop for the first time in that windows.
Just shut down after a first time startup in that windows, plug in the harddrive, and change operating systems through the bios, by changing the boot order of the hardrives each time you want to load another, for linux into windows and back.

Although I don't just mean for this game, it can work to be compatible with alot of windows games that way. This way you get the best of both options. =)

If the windows 8.1 preview doesn't work now, then I don't know, but you can download a .iso file of it, then use a .iso file program to get into that file, for the installation, but it would be a good idea to learn how to make it into an install disc to install with windows startup, make sure in your bios that your cd drive is set to first priority, to boot first always, nothing will happen when a cd isn't in the drive, but this is good for installing issues when needed, although after first windows install, it will ask to press a key, ignore it and let windows startup for the first time, then take the cd out once your get to the windows desktop screen, make sure it is completely loaded before taking out the windows install cd.

Also, when another windows comes out, there will be more free windows preview installations. Can't say they will all be compatible with older games, but some might be.

The best idea is to build a custom pc, and to learn your windows well, as well as to keep it up to date in all areas, even drivers and programs, as well as removing viruses, spyware and other types, then when to disable the antivirus autoprotect for specific games or installations.

But using a custom pc is going to be the best thing, then add windows 7 to it and wait for a new windows, install it on another harddrive if a new windows comes out, newegg.com for custom building a pc. And the reason I mentioned windows 7 again, is because of the compatibility with games today, some new ones will work on windows 8.1 just as easily, if those games just came out. Although some people don't have an issue with games on windows 8.1, where others will, depends on your hardware, so build a custom pc, amd motherboard as a 990fx with the best air cooled processor, and ddr3 capable, then buy an nvidia geforce 670 gtw ftw edition at the least.

But anyways, I know you guys like your linux, I suggest trying the method of the windows 7 or 8.1 preview, which ever will work on your pc and for the game, and if those previews still do work. But install it on another harddrive and boot that drive through the bios, then switch back to linux in the bios when done with windows games. Don't forget to find all cookies on all harddrives, after updates, installs or surfing the web. Even if just using steam, it might leave cookies possibly on one drive sometimes.

With what? Linux for this game?

Or are you talking about the multiplayer?

Also, it's a good idea to have another way to get their games to work, nothing wrong with giving it a try as it's not that hard to do, you just download it, use a program to burn it to a blank cd, then as it becomes a windows install cd because of the setup files properly on the cd, it will then startup at launch of the pc, and when you install windows preview "if it still works", and worth the try.., then you can enjoy games that you normally couldn't get to work on linux.

It works both ways for a linux user, and is a very easy process to switch in the bios of harddrives just to use the other windows.

I do it with win 7 32 bit ultimate, and win 7 64 bit home premium, but I do that for specific reasons, also to keep the win 7 64 bit version as clean and perfect as possible, works fast too, and the win 7 32 bit version is for surfing the web, cleaning up after browsing, removing cookies, scaning for viruses using an antivirus, and all sorts of things that way, for the ultimate clean pc.
