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.

— Feral Interactive (@feralgames) March 23, 2016

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.

Quoting: HalifaxIt'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.
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.

Quoting: HalifaxMake 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)".
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.

Even though I’m personally not really interested in the game I think it’s a fantastic addition to the Linux games catalogue and it gives reason to hope that one day we’ll also see Deus Ex Human Revolution coming to Linux.

Quoting: jf33Is there any chance they release it on Because I would really like to buy it, but I don't spend money on non-DRM-free games.

Coming from that company, I don't think so... But, if someday this game is released on GOG, it will be without a Linux version.

^ This.

Agreed, and I'm not saying Rhianna is a bad writer, by any means. It's more like, this game series used to have a rock and roll sound track, and now it's country. I don't care if it's good country, that's not the point. She writes a story my wife would love to watch if it was a movie for rent - but my wife doesn't play these video games, who do they think they're marketing to?

But the game itself was very good, and at least it does let you skip out of all the cutscenes - all props to Feral for porting it, I wish I had not played it in Wine now - which was not that good of an experience on my PC.
