Looks like the 2013 game Tomb Raider is heading to SteamOS & Linux according to new information popping up on SteamDB.

I'm actually a big fan of the game, as I played it when it came out on PS3, but sadly I never got to finish it for various reasons. Being able to do so on my favourite system, that's bloody brilliant.

I wonder who's doing the port? Any guesses folks?

About this game (Official)
Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. Download the Turning Point trailer to see the beginning of Lara’s epic adventure. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

There is "feral_external_test_team" branch and Feral ported this game to OSX so i'm 100% sure that Feral will release Linux version.

Really great news. On the downside we have to wait probably 2 months or even longer as usual. Last year I was hoping for TR13 to be released before TR16, but that is obviously impossible now.

Quoting: ZeloxI imagen this is a test, if tomb raider from 2013 sells good, we will see the second game ported aswell.
I hope the port is good, cause the game is really good overall ^^
I don't think the game has so much sale potential anymore, I got it for 4€ in 2014 (shame on me, I think it was my last Win only/Wine game), on the Winter sale it was sold for 3€. I will buy the DLC, no doubt.

Even in that case, if it proves profitable (if the pc code was not very windows dependant, it might have been a cheap port, so it would not require huge sales to be so), we might see more games coming.

First I thought this was great news, and then I watched some gameplay and read the negative reviews on Steam… Camera moves by itself to take annoying angles, many QTEs (for which you probably need a gamepad), many cutscenes. Exactly what I hated in Mordor.

Hopefully they port Dishonored 2 next…

What of previous Tomb Raiders as well?

A Bethesda game in Linux?.....

Wow, if they make Tomb Raider for Linux, chances are that Rise of Tomb Raider will come for Linux too.

Too bad that I already bought them for Windows.

Great news! Already played on PS3 and like it. I hope for more Tomb Raider games being ported, especially new one and TR Anniversary.
