DG2: Defense Grid 2 Released For Linux launch on Steam
DG2: Defense Grid 2 is a Strategy game, developed by Hidden Path Entertainment and published by 505 Games, which was released in 2014.
Defense Grid 2 (DG2), the sequel to the critically acclaimed Defense Grid: The Awakening, is the next evolution in tower defense, bringing PC and console fans new strategies within dynamic and evolving battlescapes that can be played in single-player or co-op and competitive MP. Dynamic, constantly evolving battlescapes ups the challenge, offering DG2 players endless ways to tap into resources and build towers in order to defend against waves of incoming enemies. The controls are intuitive while the gameplay is deep.
In DG2, players must protect human colonies by taking their prowess and skills to other planets where they soon come upon alien invaders on an asteroid outpost. The Asteroid Surface level gives players an opportunity to guard their cores on a pre-set path map, offering a few alien redirection options along with new game lighting, visual effects and a new level of detail that will immerse players in the experience.
“When you purchase Defense Grid 2 on Steam, your key works for Windows, Mac, and SteamOS/Linux. If you wish to check out the SteamOS & Mac versions prior to October 14th, you will receive access to early-but-not-complete versions of Defense Grid 2 that are lower in performance than the final game will be, and which still have some bugs and issues that will be updated and resolved in time for an October 14th ship.
“We apologize for not having all 5 platforms that we targeted ready for September 23rd, but Mac and SteamOS are very close and will be final soon,” reads the announcement posted on Steam.
This is somewhat of a premiere for a Linux launch on Steam, but users have to admire the sincerity of the developers. So, if you happen to have bought DG2: Defense Grid 2 for Linux, remember that the official release for this platform is October 14.
