Re: Planetside 2 for Linux?


This might be stupid but I found this on twitter yesterday.

@iroll4
"@j_smedley Blizzard and Valve flagships support OpenGL and thus alternatives to Win8; why not SOE? Thanks, and looking forward to PS2!! "

@J_smedley -(SOE president)
"@iroll4 stay tuned "

I might be out on deep water, but this exchange could be a hint at support of linux.
It could also just be wishful thinking from me.

I will be actively pusuing this with Xubuntu 12.04 64bit. Smed mentioned that they will have a MacOS client down the road, so I'll either get the Windows client to work in Linux or the Mac client to work in FreeBSD. Or both.

Yeah, the Alternative to Windows 8 is Windows 7.

The alternative to windows are screens! I would think the possibility of creating options would be enough for everyone. It's not like if they do a linux distro they can't get help keeping it up on the linux end. Might compensate for itself. This is a F2P game afterall. Embrace the advantages! 8p Might lead to things you wouldn't think it would.

Edit: Other alternative is metal bars also!! 8o

Re: Planetside 2 for Linux?


Well im kinda concerned about service pack if anything..

I can't get Windows Vista to update to SP2 for the life of me....done just about everything...but it seems to be XP/Vista/7. Wonder if they have plans for 8 and mac.

Well, they are planning Mac support after launch, requiring them to support OpenGL, which can be reused for linux. It all comes down to enough Linux users stirring up a ruckus to make SOE think it is worthwile. In reality it is doubtful, as gamers who use linux still have a windows partition for gaming.
