The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Confirmed For Linux & SteamOS
So, it looks like The Witcher 3 will really be coming to Linux thanks to SteamOS, but will you be buying it?
This is the image that showed up on Steam's home-page:
I am really hoping it will be a native port since the eON technology isn't for me up to scratch at all, but maybe in future it will be who knows. They have until February 2015 to sort out the Linux version, so one would hope it will be a decent port regardless of the tech used to bring it to our platform.
If it is a real port it will blow pretty much any other action+rpg type game we have right now away.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game, set in a graphically stunning fantasy universe, full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher, you play as Geralt of Rivia, one of a dying caste of monster hunters, and embark on an epic journey in a war-ravaged world that will inevitably lead you to confront a foe darker than anything humanity has faced so far—the Wild Hunt.
This is great news to see CD PROJEKT RED take notice of Linux. This news follows on from the fact that GOG.com's new game client will eventually support Linux too.
UPDATE: It seems someone flipped a switch too early and it may not even happen. That's quite a big derp someone did. See our comments for more info.
