DEFCON Patch, Linux Plans

The DEFCON Website now offers a new patch for Introversion Software's strategy game of global conflict, while the Steam edition of the patch is now automatically available. This update adds amBX support and ushers in an era of cross-platform play for the game, as Macs and PCs can now play together online, and word is this support will also extend to the upcoming Linux edition: "Indie-developer Introversion Software today announced the release of version 1.4 of their hit-title DEFCON, an online multiplayer strategy game, based around the theme of thermonuclear war. Significantly, the new patch provides cross-platform interoperability, enabling Windows users to wage nuclear Armageddon against fellow Mac players. Linux users will also soon be able to join in the fun, with the release of the Linux version due around the end of April."

Calabi,

The "lack of tension" you describe might be true in the single player (how tense can you be against a computer AI player, honestly) but I challenge you get online and try multiplayer then come back here and tell me that the game doesn't have tension.

As you creep your subs up against your enemy coast to launch a massive decapitation strike or suddenly see your teammate backstab you and wipe out your cities while their bombers follow closely behind, I guarntee that you will suddenly find a great deal of tension in this game.

Defcon is one of the most nerve wrecking games I've ever played but that's one of the main reasons I still think it's the best game I've played in the past year.
