Gravel, the 'ultimate off-road experience' is now officially supported on Linux

Posted by , | Views: 5,690

The second racing game from Milestone has arrived on Linux with Gravel, what they claim is the 'ultimate off-road experience'.

Much like the previous port of MXGP3, Milestone once again teamed up with the porting company Virtual Programming to bring it to Linux.

More about it:

Take a tour around the world to discover the range of extreme and wild environments that will offer you a fully off-road experience. There are four disciplines where you can compete with the most powerful cars.

  • Cross Country: Huge areas with different layouts, perfect for competing in checkpoint races in the most evocative landscapes. Run through a waterfall with the aurora borealis as backdrop or try the right grip in the largest deserts in the world.
  • Wild Rush: The wildest locations where you can compete in lap races. Unique environments with natural obstacles that will force you to race your way through the slopes of a mountain, on paradise islands, and through masses of debris and quarry rocks.
  • Speed Cross: Races set in the most beautiful tracks in the world. Real-world tracks, from Europe to America, where you can show your skills in incredible jumps and chicanes.
  • Stadium: Real and fictional arenas, full of jumps and spectacular layouts!

It's worth noting, that on Steam user reviews don't paint a very good picture. It's sat on Mixed overall, with the most recent being Mostly Negative. As always, take it with a pinch of salt.

According to the supported peripherals list, my Logitech G29 is included so it could be quite fun to try out as there's no mention of differences in the Linux version. I've reached out to Milestone about a review key, so hopefully we can have a proper look.

Going by the specifications, both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs are supported.

You can find Gravel on Humble Store (on sale) and Steam.

LinasMostly negative reviews, but when I look at the reviews themselves, only 3 of them are negative on the front page.

Their review volume is quite low, so that makes the "recent" quite sensitive to variation. Still, it looks like an ok arcade racer game. Nothing wrong with that, I'm still looking for a Powerslide replacement. But the price and the DLC are a bit too AAA for me. With the game definitely not reflecting the good parts of AAA.

I'm always getting this. But you can filter for negative reviews to see why they disliked it.

Well...

One year too late, and with only 40% recent positive reviews on Steam, and with a 50€ + 30€ DLC price.

And i'm sure if Linux users don't buy it, it's because of Linux users, not because of the game itself, and so, next time, no, no Linux version.
