Eyes on the road racing fans, as F1 2015 is currently going free to grab a permanent copy and F1 2017 has a free weekend with sale.

On the Humble Store, for little over a day left you can grab a copy of F1 2015. While Humble Store doesn't mention Linux support with a platform icon, it does support Linux (it's a Steam key) and they do list Feral Interactive as the developer and publisher for Linux.

Meanwhile on Steam, if you fancy something more recent (and much better overall) you can try F1 2017 for free for two days and it's also on sale with 70% off if you like it!

Pretty good weekend for those interesting in racing games but haven't checked out either yet.

Also, totally unrelated but you can also grab a copy of Lethal League for free from Fanatical.

I was excited until I realized that F1 2015 doesn't support Linux.

Yes, it does, I literally say so in the article.

It is. Check Steam page first.

Quoting: GuestStrangely F12017 runs better than 2015, it is not a slideshow when I start from the back of the grid. :)
F1 2015 uses OpenGL on Linux, 2017 runs on Vulkan. Might have something to do with it.

Yet another game that does not work with the steam link. Pretty disappointing. Thing is, I have so many games that I do not have to bother with the ones that do not run correct.

Interesting, because when I checked out at the Humble store, a big red warning appeared saying, "This title does not work in Linux!"

Or is that only the Humble version?

They've messed up the store for it, since they do list the Linux dev/publisher (Feral) but didn't check it for supporting Linux so it has no icon. I can assure you, Feral did port it to Linux ;)

Fair enough. I am no longer disappointed. :)

Speaking of Humble messing up, I must have sent half a dozen mails to Humble support by now to tell them of missing Linux icons for games in new bundles. They do eventually add them every time, but I'm a bit miffed they still keep doing this.

F1 2017 is really fun, assuming that one uses a steering wheel, highly recommended!

(It is also the last session with somewhat cool cars, the introduction of the halo device this year is the end of F1 n my opinion :(, hope they will find a loophole to get rid of this thing again)
