After a few accidents leaking out before it was due, Feral have today officially (and finally) properly confirmed F1 2015 is coming to Linux.

Looks like Mac is missing from the announcements, wonder what happened there then!

Requirements

It looks like it will be Nvidia only, as the system requirements only mention Nvidia. You will need a 1GB NVIDIA 640 with the 364.19 driver at a minimum.

Very exciting, our first proper F1 game will be on Linux May 26th. I will be ignoring all the reviews and taking it as I see it, as the reviews aren't amazing.

Looks like it was this previous clue which has now vanished.

Problem with the reviews: Windows has plenty of alternatives - particularly the predecessors of F1 2015.

This game looks good, as seen in reviews has good graphics, good gameplay, like the previous one, the only issue is the lacks career mode.
I will get it in a sale.

Obvious reasons why the Mac port could be delayed are the poor state of OpenGL on Mac, more workarounds to support older OpenGL versions might be necessary. I'm sure Feral are not delaying Mac versions if there isn't a good reasons. Consider news like this as signs that Linux is becoming a better OS for games than MacOS X.

Someone can tell Feral that the header only says "MAC"?... a little bit confusing

In the Steam store, the Windows version is DirectX 11, and the recommended GPU is a GTX 970, same as Linux. The minimal requirement is a GTX 640, also the same as Linux, but Codemasters lists older GPUs too.

So, a DX11 game means OpenGL4.3 Linux right? OSS AMD drivers will not work with this for a few months. Grid Autostport plays very nice today with the OSS driver, but not at launch. so I must buy this in a couple of months or so.

2014 season was thought to be The Iceman's last... So glad it wasn't! Räikkönen and Vettel the greatest characters of the bunch.

I'd foolishly bought F1 2014 ages ago based on a rumour it was coming to Linux. Sadly, it wasn't to be. But, from my brief spell of playing it on Windows, it was quite fun. So this will definitely be a post-payday buy for me. Hopefully the textures won't pop in and out as much as F1 2014, which was quite distracting.

That's Thursday. Niiiiiice.

AMD are reasonably close to releasing AMDGPU-PRO officially I think(non-beta that is), so it will be interesting to see if devs start mentioning AMD as supported hardware or if there going to continue sucking NVIDIAs ba.. I mean specifying NVIDIA only in requirements?
