Metro Exodus arrives for Linux on April 14

By - | Views: 30,026

Originally released back in 2019, Metro Exodus from 4A Games and Deep Silver now has a launch date for their official Linux build which will land on April 14.

"Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created. Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter."

In a short and sweet update on Twitter today, the official Metro account sent this out:

Spartans, we have an update for you on the #Mac & #Linux versions of #MetroExodus We are working hard on bringing these to you, and we can finally let you know the train has left the station. Both versions are now on track to arrive on Wednesday April 14.

According to a follow-up tweet, the Linux port will support Ray Tracing too.

Features:

  • Embark on an incredible journey - board the Aurora, a heavily modified steam locomotive, and join a handful of survivors as they search for a new life in the East
  • Experience Sandbox Survival - a gripping story links together classic Metro gameplay with new huge, non-linear levels
  • A beautiful, hostile world - discover the post-apocalyptic Russian wilderness, brought to life with stunning day / night cycles and dynamic weather
  • Deadly combat and stealth - scavenge and craft in the field to customize your arsenal of hand-made weaponry, and engage human and mutant foes in thrilling tactical combat
  • Your choices determine your comrades’ fate - not all your companions will survive the journey; your decisions have consequence in a gripping storyline that offers massive re-playability
  • The ultimate in atmosphere and immersion - a flickering candle in the darkness; a ragged gasp as your gasmask frosts over; the howl of a mutant on the night wind - Metro will immerse and terrify you like no other game…

Quoting: Liam DaweTo clear it up we have the info on the Steam Tracker:
QuoteWhen buying games from Steam, how is the desktop platform counted? From what Valve told us (February 2020), they first take the desktop Steam client platform used to buy it, then whatever has the most playtime in two weeks. However, Android and Web Browser purchases default to Windows and then what has the most playtime in two weeks. If you want to ensure developers see a Linux sale: play it only on Linux in the first two weeks, don't buy it and leave it.

Oh no, Web Browsers default to Windows? I didn't know that and now my pile of shame mostly consists of Web Browser purchases. Damn...

Yes, that is the number one question. Does it come with ray tracing and DLSS ?
Otherwise, I almost gave up waiting, resisted buying it until now. Finally, here it comes !

There is no DLSS on linux sadly, ray tracing is possible tho.

I remember this differently as well...

Just to make sure, I install every new game and start it up.
(That's also useful to make sure it actually runs.)

Done this for the last game I bought. Others were to old, unfortunately...

Finally a native release that happened because of Stadia.

I'm not sure that this counts as that, tbh. Yes, it was released on Stadia before it was released for Linux, but the prior Metro games were also released for Linux. We do now know that a Stadia release doesn't prevent a Linux release, though.

Quoting: kokoko3kSince it has been said it will use proton without wine, i'm very curious to see how it performs!
No. The Stadia port used DXVK, not Proton. You don't get Proton without Wine ;)

We don't know yet exactly what the desktop port will use.
Yeah, I was clearly in coffee need.
But now my curiosity just doubled :)
