Jujubee S.A. has announced they're bringing back FLASHOUT with FLASHOUT 3, a high-stakes and high-speed combat racer is coming with Native Linux support later this year. A racer in the spirit of the classic Wipeout, it looks pretty flashy.

Anyone remebering that one?
Unfortunately, the version on Steam is just the emulated PSX version,
which explains the bad rating.
Quoting: GamingSlothYesyesyesyesyes!!!! I miss the whole combat racing genre a lot!!! "Have a Nice Day" for example was my favourite back then. Are there any good modern combat racers out there at the moment?I had the same itch recently and went looking. I wanted to relive Vigilante 8 (very similar to Twisted Metal). Crossout looks really good but the anti-cheat doesn't work. Crash Drive 3 has Linux support but I haven't purchased yet. I'm thinking about trying out Drive Buy and simply returning it if it doesn't work (Windows-only). Finally, there is Assault Bots which is free. Nothing to lose. I tried that one and it's OK but not that good.
See more from me
