Borderlands 2 Also Looks Like It's Coming To Linux, UPDATE: Confirmed
Posted , 2 September 2014 at 7:03 pm UTC / 34897 views
UPDATE: We have confirmation from Aspyr Media that they are doing the port:
Michael Blair, Aspyr MediaYes! BL2 Linux is absolutely real! We've been working hard on it for months and will talk about a release date as soon as possible.


Remember when Randy Pitchford of Gearbox told us not to get our hopes up? Then Borderlands: The Pre-sequel was confirmed for Linux? Well he's a funny guy as Borderlands 2 is now showing signs of coming over to Linux anyway.

Thanks to the SteamDB as usual:

There's a lot more too, but you get the idea

Borderlands 2 was ported to Mac thanks to Aspyr Media, so it's easy to assume they will be doing the porting for Borderlands 2 on Linux as well. Considering how good their first Linux port was I have high hopes for this one to not only be real, but to be a good port.

I've actually played a lot of the original Borderlands and a little bit of Borderlands 2, so I will be buying all the DLC once it is release to show my support. I might even grab a gift copy for one lucky GamingOnLinux reader, so stay tuned for that.

Borderlands 2 is a massive game with some really awesome weapons to be found. The weapons that can be found vary widly too, and no play-through will be the same. The chance to have this type of game on Linux is amazing.

I would imagine Borderlands 2 would be ported before The Pre-sequel since it's an older and more familiar code-base.

We have reached out to Aspyr Media to see if they can comment on it or point us in the direction of who is doing it.

You can check out Borderlands 2 on Steam here, but we highly recommend NOT buying it until it is released.

Official About
A new era of shoot and loot is about to begin. Play as one of four new vault hunters facing off against a massive new world of creatures, psychos and the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Make new friends, arm them with a bazillion weapons and fight alongside them in 4 player co-op on a relentless quest for revenge and redemption across the undiscovered and unpredictable living planet.

Are you as excited as we are? Be sure to sound off in the comments and spread the word across the internet.

For me Randy Pitchford of Gearbox this puts you firmly back in my good backs after Colonial Marines, so don't break my heart again please.

That would make me a very happy gamer. I´ve already sunk a fair bit of time into both titles at the start of 2013 when I still had a Windows partition. They´re pretty superb shooters.

This is very good news. "First-person Diablo" is still the best desciption I've heard, from my son.

Aspyr did the Mac port, FWIW.
