It's come to our attention, a matter of days before we announced the Pre-Order, that other games developers have been having issues with Mac OS & LINUX versions of their titles.

We want to be as open as we can with you guys so here's our plan, and why we're choosing this course of action;

Right now we're focused heavily on building a great game so that we can reach our goal release date. We believe we have the time to do this, and that time frame originally included Mac OS and LINUX.
Due to the surprise information about other Devs having issues we didn't want to sell the game to you and then have this supposed issue delay these versions beyond the promised release date. As fan of games our self, we'd be greatly disappointed if this happened to us.

When we hit Quality Assurance (QA) we will be able to know if we're able to tackle these issues or not. This does mean that it could be a super easy fix and all goes smoothly, or it could take us weeks just to tackle this one problem. Trying to solve this now would affect the development progress of the entire game, which is why we have to take this path.

Ultimately MacOS and LINUX will come! This is a promise!

Our deepest of apologies for any inconvenience.
Regards
Fellow Gamer - Alt

Linux and macOS gone?
A few days ago this game had listed support for Linux and macOS, Now this support seems gone. Is this an error in Steam or is a release for Linux and macOS canceled?

I felt it was best to describe the full details in a thread for everyone to find easily.
I'll move this over to that thread to keep everyhting in the right place.

Thanks for the great and open answer. if there is a Linux beta... I am here ;-)

Thanks for being open. I assume you're using Unity then if you feel you might have issues?

Indeed, thank you for being open. Good to know that you are working to deliver Linux version too.

Thank you very much for the transparency on the issue. It's something I wish more developers did. Looking forward to an eventual Linux release.

Yeah seconding this. When it gets to that point, throwing up a Linux beta would be fantastic.

Thank you for being honest and upfront. Good luck with making it work.

Thank you for your understanding.

We'll have the time to look at this sometime near the end of October, as we're focused on making the game as a priority.
This is based on if everything runs smoothly, and those of you that know a little about development, may know that these things can slide so i do ask of you all a little more patience, we really appreciate it

Thank you

If I would preorder now, would the sale counts towards Linux or Windows?

If you were to buy now, on release you'll get the Windows version.
Also, as soon as the LINUX and MACOS issue is resolved, then you will also gain access to those versions.

I'm sorry, but I'll wait until the Mac version is released before purchasing, there has been too many WH40K games where the Mac version was initially announced and never released that I have some trust issues.

when you remember your PC is a lenovo not a linux and you get a sigh of relief
