A small SteamOS beta update has been released and it adds in Flatpak support. Along with a Linux Kernel bump and security updates.
For those of you using SteamOS, you might want to know about a new beta Valve just put out. It features the usual security updates as well as a few other niceties.
The big SteamOS beta update that Valve shipped last month has now officially been released into the stable updates branch.
Valve haven't been sitting on their hands, as they have pushed out a fresh update for SteamOS that's currently in Beta. It's been a while and it's a good one.
SteamOS isn't being left out in the cold like some would believe, as it too today got a big update with new shiny stuff.
Imperium Galactica II: Alliances just released for Linux & SteamOS and it looks like it's a native version.
Something that didn't go unnoticed was that Valve has removed the SteamPlay logo from Steam store pages.
PC Gamer had a chat with Alienware manager Frank Azor about the changing situation of Steam Machines. They feel Windows 10 is part of the reason Steam Machines and SteamOS didn't do so well.
On this day, last year, Valve released Steam Machines onto the world, after the typical Valve delays. While the state of the Linux desktop regarding gaming has improved, Steam Machines have not taken off as a platform, and SteamOS remains stagnant. What happened with these projects from Valve? Why were they created, why did they fail, and what could have been done to make them succeed?
You know the drill by now, it's up and down all the time and I don't think we should really pay much attention to the Steam Hardware Survey any more, regardless of it going up or down.
VR support for Linux has been lacking and the communication around it has been pretty damn poor by Valve and HTC, but it seems this is about to change at SteamDevDays.
StarMade, the Minecraft-like spaceship builder now has a brand new launcher, be sure to try the demo!
StarMade is an impressive game, it has a similar voxel-block style to Minecraft, but that's were the similarities end. The game now has a proper launcher that includes a bundled version of Java. This will make it easily run on Steam Machines.
Rocket League is now officially available for SteamOS, due to the time of the release I will be unable to give any actual impressions as I am likely asleep while this gets published.
CD PROJEKT RED replied to me about The Witcher 3 and Linux, flat-out denying to answer any questions
With all the hoo-ha about The Witcher 3 and the replies GOG have given (first being it was never planned, second being they don't know), I finally have an answer from the actual developer of The Witcher 3.
Oh my! Rocket League has finally been officially announced as having an actual Linux release. The next update named "Rumble" will have a beta version for Linux.
