We study the possibility to implement the canonical Tsallis distribution for lattice field theory simulations. Formally, the application of the Tsallis distribution can be interpreted as introducing a fluctuating temperature. We give arguments for the approach and present our simulation method as well as our first numerical results in determining the equation of state for pure SU(2) lattice gauge fields.
