Surprise, F1 2017 for Linux appears on SteamDB

By - | Views: 34,573

Suprised? No? Okay. After Feral Interactive [Official Site] directly asked to see a demand for F1 2017 and then the official F1 2017 twitter account had a little leak, F1 2017 for Linux has turned up on SteamDB.

Now this has popped up on SteamDB (it's a long one, but here's a glimpse):

600621/name: Linux - F1 2017 Binary

There's a lot more to indicate it, so it may very well end up coming to Linux. I bet there's going to be a number of happy faces in our comments if it does get officially announced.

The game has just released today with Windows/Mac support, with the Mac version done by Feral.

Will you buy a copy if it does come to Linux?

Quoting: tuubiBelieve it or not, you won't find the familiar H-shifter in modern high end rally cars. WRC drivers use either paddles or sequential manual stick shifts that AFAIK work like you described. Clutch is basically only needed to get the car moving. I guess if you're going for total realism, you'd need all kinds of setups to cover all the available car classes in Dirt Rally.

Looks like you're right. From Wikipedia:

QuoteA sequential manual transmission (or sequential manual gearbox) is a non-traditional type of manual transmission used on motorcycles and high-performance cars for auto racing, where gears are selected in order, and direct access to specific gears is not possible.


A true sequential transmission will very often use dog clutch engagement rather than the more usual synchromesh as fitted to a normal H-pattern road car gearbox. Engagement using dogs requires only a very brief interruption of engine torque to complete a shift into any adjacent gear. This allows shifting between gears without the use of the clutch. The clutch would normally be used only for standing starts.

Thank you for making me feel better about my 50 € wheel! ^_^

Considering the overall good reviews I'm planning on getting the Linux version! The last F1 game for Linux from Codies (2016?) was a bit of a let down though.

F1 2015 has never performed very well with Mesa. The difference with Windows version was brutal. I hope the 2017 port works much better with Mesa, and it can work with Vulkan to see how RADV performance evolves in the future.

Hopes, hopes...

Depends on the price. Right now at $60, NO!! I'll wait for a sale when I can pick it up for $10-$15 or less.
