Feral Interactive are teasing ANOTHER new Linux port

By - | Views: 33,961

Feral Interactive are at it once again, go dust off those thinking caps as they're bringing another game to Linux.

From the famous Feral Radar, here's their latest Linux port teaser:

As a reminder, Feral Interactive have only recently release Life is Strange: Before the Storm and Total War: Warhammer II is confirmed to be coming this autumn. On top of that, last month they also put up another teaser that we're still guessing.

I wouldn't be surprised if they do try to get more ports out earlier now, especially with Steam Play which would eat into their Linux port sales. Anyway…looks like 2018 really will be another great year for Linux gaming!

The amount of Linux games Feral has ported now is kind of ridiculous: XCOM, XCOM 2, Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Mad Max, Shadow of Mordor, HITMAN, F1 2017, Life is Strange, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Dawn of War II, Dawn of War III, DiRT Rally and the list goes on.

What do you think "AURORA" will be?

Quoting: appetrosyanI'd like to point out that port after port after port is a sign of healthy business for Feral. I've also heard that they have Job Vacancies... Go "native" Linux games?

But is it we have so much work we need more talent or is it in house talent hitting the abandon ship button

I think if it were the latter, we would be getting fewer releases.

I agree it could be that for sure and i would like it to be but there is always that nagging doubt they have no business model without companies wanting ports, Steam play is big new variable. Ah well maybe am wrong and Feral goes from strength to strength I mean they deserve it Ryan C gordon pretty much was linux gaming(including his work with loki) until fereal.aspyr and vp and then later valve arrived.

Quoting: CoolitThat's awesome,

Although I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for ports of either Skyrim, Fallout 4 or Witcher 3 in the future :D

Witcher 3 is almost perfectly playable with DXVK. Only stream output support in Vulkan drivers is missing and perhaps a little more optimization and it will be more or less the same experience as on Windows 10.

Skyrim Special Edition should be perfectly playable as well once the audio issues get fixed. Graphically DXVK runs it very well.

Fallout 4 is somewhat worse than Skyrim, but i suppose given a little time will be a good experience as well.

So porting those 3 would be a wasted effort in my opinion.

I fully agree also dont see a world in which Zenimax suddenly goes back on a bunch of linux unfriendly design decisions and then randomly embraces linux and launches skyrim fallout 4 and future games on linux. I imagine the only scenario that happens is that tomorrow morning every copy of windows and mac os bricks leaving only linux and the world is forced onto the linux platform for everything then in that case expect native ports of Bethesda games.

Or, steam threatening to ban them,for not permitting us to use the already-existing native (more native than SDL ported versions of old games.

but it would be interesting how the vulkan port can compete with it

i hope it is YAKUZA. i think ZERO and KIWAMI are very similar to port, so they would have 2 games

I'd love to see some of the recent remakes SEGA has published on Steam. Yakuza or Shenmue would be outstanding additions to our catalogue.

shenmue should run with a workaround according to this

so does yakuza, i just saw

Let it be Hitman! For once i have enough money to buy a game at release price!

A bit OT: hopefully devs will have a system to tell Valve which of their games get ported. These new wine scripts, while great for playing old games, are very bad news for people that port games. And that is sadly most of the "big" linux games, except few cross platform friendly studios like Croteam, and some crowdfounded games, like PoE.

Quoting: Whitewolfe80Potentially good news but WB did kill Batman after approving feral to port it so 50/50
Batman: Arkham Night had quite bad initial reception on Windows. It took them months to make it playable, but it already got a lot of bad press by that time. My guess is, that their decision to cancel the port was because of that, rather than some problems with Feral Interactive.

The game is quite demanding and Vulkan wasn't yet an option at that time, I guess it simply didn't performed when being translated to OpenGL. The initial bad reception certainly didn't helped either.

Shadow of War would be nice, since it's not working with Proton. Time seems to me ideal, game is finally completed with microtransactions removed and Definitive Edition available.
