Excellent news today folks, Feral Interactive have now officially confirmed that Tomb Raider will be coming to Linux "This Spring".

This Spring, Linux takes the rousing leap you’ve been hoping for. We heard your requests: Tomb Raider is coming. pic.twitter.com/Eo5ZbsrC6Y

This is very exciting as it's another Square Enix to have on Linux. The game itself I personally thought was excellent, as I played some of it on the PS3 years ago but never finished it.

From the press release:

Quote“We are delighted to be bringing one of gaming’s best-loved franchises to Linux in the exhilarating form of Tomb Raider,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “It traces Lara’s evolution from amateur explorer to battle-hardened survivor in an amazing adventure that Linux gamers will relish.”


Tomb Raider will be available from the Feral Store, Steam and other third-party stores, and will retail for US $19.99, £14.99 (inc. VAT) and €19,99 (inc. VAT).

About the game

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.

Feral Interactive must have my secret list of games I want to see on Linux.

Thanks everyone! Very cool to see people as excited for this as we are.

QuoteWish they would port us some Lego games. I keep asking them. They dont seem to hear my cry...i guess i need to be louder.

We hear ya. The cries of penguins affect us deeply, and we hope that one day we will be able to harness them to power the creation of any Linux game.

QuoteWhy it's called "Tomb Raider for Mac and Linux – Coming Soon trailer" doesn't really make sense, since there's already a Mac port.

Thanks for the heads up! Where'd that sneaky unlisted video come from?

Is a source code port or is another windows game wrapped in winE?

Feral don't do Wine wrappers, so I expect this is another native port, and based off the MAC port which they also did.

There are only 2 ways to silence a crying penguin: by giving us great games or by stuffing raw herring down our throats. I prefer the former.

@ellie_feral: If I buy DLC from Linux once the game is released on Linux, will you get a cut? I already bought (and started playing) the game right when It came out, so I can not buy it again. But I really want to support you for porting it. If DLC is a way to do that, then I'll gladly buy as much of it as I can afford. The only alternative would be for me tor rebuy on the Feral Store I guess?

Quoting: HalifaxGo ahead and start with the down-voting now, this is my give-a-sh** face.

Might I suggest a good proctologist to help with all that butthurt?

There you go, right off the bat, you'd make a better writer for the game than the ones they used. Yeah, I was overly concerned about it after one or three too many beers last night - but wow was that game's story insanely boring. A great game that I had to give up on all the cut-scenes.

It's like they brought in the the Lifetime Channel to write the script that had to be approved by a moral majority conservative Mormon panel. I don't need my video games taking themselves soooo seriously.

It's not like I'm so predictably boring I *just* want her to be a bigger breasted shallow sex symbol like she basically was before - reinvent her in some interesting flawed way, then - but don't make her a boring Lifetime channel movie paragon of good wholesome virtues and politically correct messages.

Make her a drunken slut that can't make a good decision to save her life. Make her find out she's actually adopted trailer trash who's not actually from her British parents. Make her a trainwreck where you just can't wait to get to the next video flashback log from an old friend to find out even more screwed up stuff she's done. "Yeah! This is Sarah.... Thanks Laura, so you had to sleep with both my sister and my husband, on Valentines day - at the SAME time? If I ever see you again (etc etc)".

But I guess there's a lot of neutered dudes in the world that just can't wait to lap up the next Lifetime movie their PTA approved panel spits out. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

That's big budget, hollywood-style, marketing-driven design for you. I'm sure Rhianna Pratchett is quite competent as a writer, but big business doesn't like taking risks.

And now you lost me. This is the other thing I dislike in current American entertainment. Every damn action movie starts with some big baddie murdering and raping the protagonist, his/her family, the family dog and the neighbour's pet pony. And every damn protagonist f**ks up absolutely everything for the first third of the movie, using drugs/booze/whatever to cope with their trauma. But that's okay, it's not unrealistically over-dramatic; It's edgy!

So basically I agree that entertainment often takes itself too seriously and is very reluctant to break the mold, but taking notes from bad fan fiction and going overboard with the drama isn't the answer. In fact I'd say you're proposing two incompatible extremes here.
