Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart update includes a fix for Linux gamers

By - | Views: 20,792

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart released back in late July and Insomniac Games / Nixxes Software have released another patch for it, which includes a fix for Linux gamers.

Even though it doesn't have official Linux support, it is fully playable with Proton and it is Steam Deck Verified. You don't often see dedicated fixes for Linux for bigger games like this, so it's pretty nice to see and continues to show how things are changing (thanks to all the effort from Valve).

From the v1.815.0.0 patch notes: 

  • Resolved a crash on start-up that could occur on Linux systems or configurations where NVIDIA Streamline is not active.
  • Fixed an incorrect prompt display for the Chain Select option at Mrs. Zurkon when using an Xbox controller.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a visual jitter effect on water bodies and puddles.
  • Various user interface improvements and bug fixes for Photo Mode and other in-game menus and popups.

On Steam it has gained a Very Positive user review score, so it seems like Nixxes did some great work on the Windows PC port once again like they did with Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Seems like a pretty quiet Steam release though overall with only 8,757 players for an all-time peak and only just over 3,000 user reviews.

You can buy it on Humble Store and Steam.

This brings a big smile to my face. There's a long game being played here, pushed by Valve, and this sort of thing is where it all begins.

I am actually quite impressed looking at how far Nixxes have gone since Project Snowblind. Their first PC ports were not that popular and honestly were kind of buggy, but they improved a lot with Deus Ex and now they have a great reputation. Them fixing things up for Linux gamers is all the more impressive!

Well, yes, but also Sony💀Internet.
They keep alternating between doing things that make me want to give them money and things that make me want to blacklist them 😩
