Dying Light Is Now Confirmed For Linux, Bring It On Techland

Dying Light is now confirmed for Linux thanks to the announcement from the developers on the Steam store itself. The Linux icons show up on the store pages, and the game even has a steam coming soon banner on the home-page. Time to get seriously excited.

Yet another same-day release for Linux here folks, let's hope there's a lot of that this year!

We reported on Linux appearing in the SteamDB entry for it only recently, but it looks as solid as it can get now.

The developers put up an official announcement:
QuoteDying Light is coming soon to SteamOS/Linux and Windows! Pre-Purchase Now to receive the exclusive "Punk Queen" in-game weapon and start your pre-load now so you're ready to play right at launch!

Dying Light is an action survival game presented in first-person perspective. The game is set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, you roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help you defeat the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created. At night, the hunter becomes the prey as the infected grow in strength and aggression - but even more lethal are the nocturnal, inhuman predators that leave their hives to feed. You will need to make use of all your skills and any available means to survive till dawn.


From Steam
Available: 27 January
This game will unlock in approximately 2 days and 13 hours
It can't come soon enough!

Still, we never usually suggest pre-ordering, ever. We have had too many issues in the past to sour the experience. However, if you wish too then look for Dying Light on Steam.

I am seriously considering breaking my own rule of not pre-ordering since the developers have announced it properly themselves now, and I would like to support their efforts (and grab the pre-order item just for kicks). Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

There are some rules that are really not meant to be broken.
I, for one, will not preorder it. I really liked Dead Island and I will definitely support them in the future, but some virtual item will not get me into that cage again.

I have a I5-3230M + GTX 670MX, do you think that i can play at this game with minimal options before to buy my new laptop (I7 + 970MX)

I don't know which is the desktop card equivalent at my mobile card GTX 670MX

Wouldn't the GTX 670MX just be the equivalent of a desktop 670?
Anyway, I would hope that your laptop is good enough because otherwise I might need to consider upgrading.

It's not far off a 560 desktop card, so you should be able to run it on the very minimum, but don't take my word for it.

Also, I caved, I pre-ordered to show my full support for their Linux efforts, I am a bad boy.

No, the 670MX is less powerful than desktop 670

That is LOL quality :D
Ay caramba, the last of my cash this month and this game has to come into play!
I know my money is going to go to them... It's inevitable.

This looks really good, I meet the recommended CPU and am over the minimum GPU, so I will probably try this, though I actually have never played a zombie game before... look interesting. And same day release!
