Savage 2: A Tortured Soul, the mixed-genre (FPS/RTS) sequel to Savage: The Battle for Newerth, has been released for Linux by S2 Games. The client is free to download and new players can sign up for a demo account with 5 hours of online play. The free client also has access to an offline single player tutorial, unlimited LAN play, and a replay database. Players can then upgrade through the game client or from the official website for $29.99 US.
“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. That is one reason why the first Savage was such a hit with them. We couldn’t be more excited to invite them back to Newerth for some savage good times.”
Thanks to ThOR27 for the heads up!
