Feral Interactive are asking what you want ported to Linux again

By - | Views: 56,439

Feral Interactive, the porting studio behind a lot of great games available on Linux are asking for some feedback again on where they should go next.

In the past, they've teased how they feed port requests into "THE REQUESTINATOR". Looks like my number three from when they asked in November 2018 turned out okay with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. As always though, we want additional ports to buy and more varied titles to play through.

On Twitter today they posted this:

What game would you like to be ported to macOS, Linux or mobile platforms in 2020, and why?

Is there a game in dire need of porting? Let us know why it’d be perfect on your favourite platform and your answer could feature in our next newsletter: https://feralinteractive.com/xx/register/

Feral have already ported a ton of games to Linux including Alien Isolation, Life Is Strange, Before the Storm, Life is Strange 2, Mad Max, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS (and many other Total War titles), XCOM and XCOM 2 plus more. Their work is great, especially now they're all-in with Vulkan the performance is great too so more would be thoroughly welcome.

How about you mention your top three most wanted Linux ports in the comments? I'll start:

  1. MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD
  2. DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT
  3. Borderlands 3

Right now, those three would be seriously good to have properly supported on Linux. As for the why? Well, 1+3 are already massively popular games and with Borderlands 3 coming to Steam this year, it would be a nice surprise. As for Dragon Ball, I'm a huge fan of it and having such a game ported and supported on Linux would be a huge boon.

Of course i will also vote for the Battle.net Games, although i doubt Activision Blizzard will listen

in no particular order:

Elite: Dangerous
Witcher 3
Mass Effect Series
Battlefield 5
DCS World
Assassin's Creed (at least everything after Black Flag)
Assetto Corsa
Project CARS 2
Train Sim World 2020

I'm not really following new releases / announcements that are windows-only, so I don't really know what new cool stuff's out there. But (action) adventures, which can be played as single player, with a good story, will always get some attention by me (something like the Tomb Raider Reboot, Deadfall Adventures, Saints Row, Dreamfall Chapters, etc.).

1. World of Warcraft Classic
2. World of Warcraft Classic
3. World of Warcraft Classic

Why?: Linux seriously lacks a professional and polished MMORPG(i've searched for years and tried many(please don't tell me "but such and such is a good MMORPG"...no. it isn't. if it were i would be playing it and not listing WoW Classic as a wishlist item)), let alone a subscription-based one(which allows the devs to get paid and servers to be maintained, something most FOSS MMOs lack and therefore the unpolished and unprofessional look). WoW and WoW Classic run very well with WINE and more recently WINE w/ DXVK.

And apparently there is a substantial user-base who run WoW with WINE on Linux that it makes gaming news when the occasional banhammer falls upon some of those players(and ActiBlizz reinstates them once it gets sorted)(I have played WoW on wine for 12 years and have never experienced this myself). I've also met many players who "work on Linux"(ie they "use linux at work and are more akin to an MCSE and are utterly clueless when it comes to gaming on Linux).

I'm not sure how the payment model for Feral would work out but I think it would be a good way for them to start havimg some sort of monthly revenue coming in.

Anyway....that's my wishlist....probably not gonna ever happen, but i'm still gonna wishlist everytime these articles popup.

cheers all!

Quoting: SirLootALot2. Any the Settlers game
Oh yeah. The upcoming Settlers game would be a blast! That's the first game where I'm seriously rethinking my anti Ubisoft stance. If it came to Linux, that might win me over.

I'd also love to see Baldur's Gate 3, though who knows by when this will be out. It's also heading to Stadia, so the work is mostly done already.

Any other upcoming game I am wanting to play is likely too niche to even mention. Oh well, make #3 Yes, Your Grace.

In some combinations of gpu and driver wine has trouble with a good framerate so a native version would be great.
Blizzard already disables a few nvidia specific things when detecting wine and rumor has it they had a linux client internatlly. So maybe Feral would be able to polish this.

MMORPGs are difficult though, they are a moving target and need constant maintenance.
