Many others and I have been waiting for 1 of 2 options to happen.
- EVE Online comes to Linux natively.
- A suitable replacement comes to Linux
Now I am not a guy to get excited easily, ok maybe I am. Maybe I need to let this game install first before I pass judgement also. But I am really hoping that Entropy will be that fill I need for a Space MMO(Vendetta Online is also great). As of today Entropy went up for sale on Steam giving Linux, Mac and Windows gamers early access.
Entropy is an open-universe science fiction MMO with a strong focus on free-form gameplay and large-scale space combat. Explore a hostile galaxy filled with over a hundred solar systems, each completely explorable, where you can hunt, trade, mine and salvage in order to survive. In Entropy, you can play the way you want, and take part in shaping a universe where you, the players, are in control. sound great I know. These are the key features that Jagex Game Studios posted on Steam.
- Massively multi-player Space Combat
Entropy finally delivers a true dogfighting experience in an MMO environment. Experience the thrill of skill-based combat set against a massively multi-player arena, where up to a hundred simultaneous players per instance can fight for supremacy.
- Dynamic Trade
Economics is the engine that drives the universe of Entropy, and a good knowledge of supply and demand can make you a fortune. Whether you play the market and trade between different stations, transporting goods across star systems crawling with pirates, mine rich asteroids or loot ancient relics, there are many routes to riches.
A deep character development system allows you to customize yours skills and ship modules to be the best possible pilot in the role that you want to play. Offensive, defensive and passive abilities allow you to customise your approach to combat and survival. Add to this a deep avatar creator with infinite variations, and you have a game intent on making each player unique and specialised.
Entropy already has 120 explorable star systems that can be interacted with on three different gameplay levels. The Galaxy map allows you to plot routes across the galaxy, through safe or hostile territory. The System map is where you travel between locations, hunt down players with valuable loot, and discover Sectors containing rich mining fields and ancient derelicts. These Sectors are the 3D levels in which the action will take place. Many sectors are permanent features of a system, but there are also dynamic Sectors that will only appear through persistent exploration.
Jagex Game Studio
I heard the name before and it was bugging me where I heard it. Oh yeah RUNSCAPE, you may have heard of it. Any-ways this company is all about MMO’s all the time so I checked them out sent a email to request a interview(crossing my fingers). Just saying, check them out , I’ll provide the link below.
Entropy on Steam is in early access right now. Unlike a lot of early access games that come through, you will have choices. You will have 3 choices to be accurate.
Entropy’s Founders program is designed to benefit our early adopters by providing a range of benefits, including a generous amount of starting funds and no character or stat resets prior to the full launch. Other benefits include exclusive character creation assets, ships, skins and increased character slots. There are no Micro-transactions in the Entropy Early Access, so when buy the game, you get the game, whatever the package.
I have none right now, I am just excited to get playing. I will most certainly do a “Let’s Play” to give you guys a heads up of what to expect for gameplay. Game On.
