Independent game developer S2 Games today announced the release of the Linux client for Savage 2: A Tortured Soul. Linux gamers can download the Savage 2 client and sign-up for a free account by clicking here.
The original Savage: A Battle for Newerth was popular among Linux gamers. This sequel builds upon the gameplay in the first game, which combined elements of real-time strategy, first-person shooter and role-playing games.
“Linux gamers are a whole different crop of players,” said Marc DeForest, co-founder and lead designer of S2 Games. “They are tech savvy, out of the box thinkers who relish creativity and originality. We couldn’t be more excited to invite them back to Newerth for some savage good times.”
In addition to the new Linux client, S2 Games also released a rather large free content update for Savage 2. The update includes:
- Level Armor Progression
- Full Clan Implementation
- Commander VoIP
- New Hellbourne Unit “Devourer”
- New Community Created Maps: “Dusk” and “Lost Valley”
