Feral Interactive are teasing movement on Life is Strange 2 for Linux

Posted by , | Views: 19,838

After confirming Life is Strange 2 would get a Linux port back in October of 2018, Feral Interactive haven't said too much about it until today.

The fifth and final episode of Life is Strange 2 was released today, so to mark the occasion the porting studio put a post on Twitter to say:

Life is Strange 2 for macOS and Linux is nearing the end of its journey. We will have some more info for you shortly. This is the trip that could bond Sean and Daniel forever… or tear their brotherhood apart.

It's quite likely that they were simply waiting to release it for Linux (and macOS) all in one go, which is what they've done for multiple other titles. Shame we have to wait, but then getting it all in one go is also quite fun.

After thoroughly enjoying Life is Strange and Before the Storm, I'm very keen to see what exciting twists they have in store for us with Life is Strange 2 considering the new protagonists. I always enjoy the epic soundtracks they come with too!

Life is Strange 2 key features:

  • Award Winning Story-Telling
  • Daniel is always learning from Sean – and what you teach him has far-reaching consequences.
  • Stunning visuals and hand-painted textures.
  • Emotive original soundtrack from Jonathan Morali, composer of the original Life is Strange - plus licensed tracks from Phoenix, The Streets, Sufjan Stevens, Bloc Party, First Aid Kit, and more.

When Feral do give out some details, we will let you know.

Liam DaweWow some people are miserable, some of us greatly enjoyed the LiS series.
That's not being miserable. It's the sad finding that Linux is departing from the mainstream titles for the mainstream public. You might even love the genre, series or title and still find this unsettling. Some of the Total War complaints also had this tone, even though I think (maybe wrongly) the Total War franchise is more mainstream than Life is Strange.

Seeing reality through rose-colored glasses might have a calming effect, might help to cope with the real problems, but it is rarely a good strategy to deal with them.

A bit too late for me. Already played all the episodes with Proton and performance is rock solid for me on 1080p with my RX580.

But would be nice to see how the performance compares later.

As for LiS2, I liked the original a lot better. This one is pretty 'meh'.

But still, it's a nice game to burn some time with.

Get it when it is on sale. Not worth the full price IMHO.

SteamSpy estimates the number of Lis Before the Strom owners to 500,000 - 1,000,000. I bet LiS 1 has more, but I can't find a number except for episode 1 (5M - 10M), which was free. Not too niche in my book.

But more important, "Nobody deserves such punishment." is quite different from "We need more mainstream games."

This is worrisome, Feral ports are stopping being games and being useful only as a proof of concept and performance gauging. Many people will stop buying from them because of that.

That's exactly the reason why Feral should focus in getting deals to port the AAA games which Linux does not already run, like the anti-cheated multiplayer ones (Destiny 2, PUBG, etc.) -- and they're pretty well acquainted with DRM, so it should not be a problem. Otherwise, they just will not have a market anymore.

When you are rooting for Feral, wishing it to succeed, this seems like the very wrong direction to go to achieve financial success, so it is indeed depressing and might feel like a punishment. I will be frank, I feel the same.

MaathI suspect there is an age range demographic to which Life is Strange caters. I tried the free first chapter, but it did not resonate with my memory of high school.

IDK what your high school was like, but mine had nothing to make a game about, so that's maybe a good thing.

It seems to be different for other people, but I don't care when a game with a school setting doesn't remind me of my school time just like I don't care when a dragon slaying game doesn't remind me of anything I have done in reality.

You mean, you don't remember that you can bend space and time with your mind or visions of a giant ass tornado destroy your home town. Strange...maybe you didn't smoke enough weed duude.

BTW: I really like Life is Strange series. I will start Life is Strange episode 2 this weekend via proton.
Sry feral could not wait for port..
