Together with the release of Update 3.50, X:rebirth is entering the public Alpha test phase for the in-house native Linux port of X: Rebirth. Since X Rebirth is a Steam Play title, this Linux port is available to everyone who owns X Rebirth on Steam already.

To enter the Linux alpha version, all you have to do is the following:

  • If you don't already have it, download and install the Steam Client for Linux.
  • Log in with your Steam account and install X Rebirth from your game library.
  • When the download is complete, right-click on X Rebirth and select Properties. In the dropdown menu of the Betas tab select the „linux“ branch and start the game. When being asked, download the update.

Please be aware that this is still an early test version, so expect crashes and bugs. If you're interested in testing this version, then please visit the official Support topic in the X Rebirth Technical forum, where you can find further information.
