Update: And now the news post has gone.

Not sure how we missed this, but Feral Interactive have officially confirmed F1 2015 is coming to Linux.

It was apparently posted just after the Tomb Raider system requirements were revealed going by their news dates, but it's possibly it was only recently made visible as it states the post was updated on the 5th of May.

We pretty much already knew this, but it's great to see official confirmation.

From their news post
QuoteGet closer than ever before to the experience of racing in the world’s most glamorous, exciting and prestigious motorsport.

Prepare for qualifying with the F1 2015 minisite, where you’ll pick up trailers, screenshots, and details on the cross-platform online multiplayer between Mac, Linux and Windows.


From the Steam page:

Shout out to the guys that correctly guessed in the other thread. Do they win a foot massage or something?

Perfect to me. I'm a big fan of Formula 1. I enjoyed a lot in Windows (I couldn't play with wine) with this kind of titles in past. I tried this game in Windows in free weekend and it is fun! It's not a surprise, but the confirmation is a good new.


Is there any E.T.A.?

I have heard good things about F1 2015. I haven't played formula games for long time (sports games too), but they are insanely popular for good reasons.

They first leaked a development build of the linux version, and now they did the same with a news post announcing it for linux. Somehow that game really wants to be released very soon, but feral keeps grabbing his heel to stop the release lol

EDIT* sorry for the tread jack... but i'm SUPER excited! Not necessarily for this particular game... but it's certainly news that it DOES run on Vulkan!

So word on the streets is that Doom CAN and IS running on Vulkan!!! *itshappening.gif*!!!

At the very least it should (eventually) work via wine Vulkan backend. Native shouldn't be that much of an issue to port, but seeing as it's Bethesda... Let's just say I'm not holding my breath.

Yeah, nothing to be excited about. Doom is not coming to Linux.
