Kerberos adds Linux Ground Pounders to Steam Early Access.

For Immediate release

March 21 st, 2013

With the first month of Ground Pounders Early Access completed, Kerberos has implemented a lot of fixes and feedback from players and now they are looking to include Linux gamers in the process with the addition of a Linux build to the game. Players who own a copy of the turn-based, cross-platform, Sci-Fi strategy Wargame will automatically have access to both the Windows and Linux versions of the game on Steam.

“We hadn’t planned on releasing Linux until after Early Access ended.” says Kerberos producer Christopher Stewart, “When we found we were further ahead with the Linux build than anticipated and we decided to give Linux gamers the chance to jump into Ground Pounders at the Early Access stage. And stay tuned for Mac/iOS/Android versions!”

The game is available for an Early Access reduced price of £5.99/€6.99/$9.99. The Early Access release is feature complete and players can test their military minds against one campaign and five scenario battles – with the final release, early adopters will automatically gain access to a second campaign and five more scenarios.

Take control of a futuristic army of land, sea, and air units, then battle alien factions to control a variety of worlds! Turn experience into veteran unites and unlock event cards to turn the tide in your favour!

Look for Ground Pounders via Steam, GamersGate, and other fine online retailers. Android cross-compatibility will follow soon, and Mac/iOS compatibility will follow the game’s final release.
