Well the wait is over, it is now available to install via the Ubuntu software Centre.
The game, which is free to install through the Software Centre, uses a subscription-based model for funding. As such users are permitted a free 8-hour in-game trial (requires signing up via the vendetta online website) before needing to purchase a subscription.
The game sees users to take on the role of spaceship pilots who are able to fly around the in-game universe battling, trading and interacting with potentially thousands of other players online at the same time.
