Life is Strange 2 releases for Linux on December 19

Posted by , | Views: 25,185

Feral Interactive announced today that their Linux port of Life is Strange 2 will be released on December 19.

Originally developed by DONTNOD Entertainment and published by Square Enix on Windows and console, we've been eagerly awaiting the Linux supported release since the announcement in October last year. Just recently, the fifth and final episode was released so we get it all at once.

The story:

After a tragic incident, brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz run away from home. Fearing the police, and dealing with Daniel's newly manifested powers of telekinesis – the ability to move objects with his mind – the boys decide to travel to their father's hometown of Puerto Lobos in Mexico for safety. Suddenly, sixteen year-old Sean is responsible for nine year-old Daniel’s safety, and teaching him right from wrong. As Daniel's power grows, it’s up to Sean to decide the rules by which they live.

As Sean, players’ choices shape the fates of the Diaz brothers, and the lives of everyone they meet. From Seattle to Portland, and on to California, through gas stations, backstreets and forests, the road to Mexico is long and filled with danger – but also friendship, wonder, and opportunity. 

Since Feral ported Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm and both ports were good, I fully expect more great work from Feral here. Life is Strange 2 currently has a "Very Positive" user rating on Steam, so it's going to be another highly regarded title to add to your collection.

You will be able to grab it from Humble Store, Feral Store and Steam.

The next title after this that we know Feral are porting to Linux is Total War Saga: TROY, with a possibility of more to come next year.

haikuThis port is useless, it arrived way to late and the game is running fine via Proton

Guess all the people who call out linux gamers asking for linux support on the steam forums to stop using the inferior linux os and start using the - in every way - superior windows os were right after all,
No idea how you came to that conclusion.
I use Linux almost all the time nowadays, because it just suits me much better than Windows, and can play all the games I currently want to play with it.
Some natively, some via Proton. Must have been months ago that I used Windows for some game that I couldn't get to work on Linux.

If at all, the existence of Proton and how well it works (About 60-70% gold+ coverage, tendency rising, obviously) just shows how good Linux is if it doesn't even need native support to play a game.

dvdsince it seems like even the "linux gamers" on GoL are commenting under every article mentioning a linux port how it's useless and they want to play the windows version with an unsupported compatibility layer. Pretty amazing.
You're making a lot of fuss about nothing.
If a game works well with Proton, it works well, and you will not have a single downside playing it that way.
If it doesn't work well with Proton, you'll either not play the game at all or dual-boot.

This myth of the great downside of "unsupported" is just that, a myth.
It either works or doesn't. The case that it works but then something breaks it only for Proton is rare enough as to be irrelevant.
And the most common case is probably in multiplayer games when EAC is added or sth. like that.

Gamers who get no support for running a game on their OS are 2nd class gamers.

Gamers who willingly give up that right are hurting Linux and helping Linux support decrease because they're not demanding Linux support like they should be doing.

No, it's not black and white does work or doesn't work. You can have (and I have seen) bugs at the very end of a game for example that make it so you can't complete the game.

Developers only want to support as few OSes as needed because capitalism demands that. When developers only need to develop for and support Windows because gamers aren't demanding support for any other OS, Microsoft has won, and our OS becomes forever 2nd class.

I don't want our OS to be 2nd class. No Tux No Bux!

.. If you don't count in GTA V

There is something to say about support. For me personally I will wait for a Feral port if I know that is coming. I did so with Shadow of the Tom Raider and will do the same with Life is Strange 2.

Otherwise I fully agree with you, Proton works perfectly fine for me for everything else I want to play (with the exception of both RockStar games ) and considering buying for Proton enters the books as Linux purchase, my conscience is clean.

Someone telling you, "Don't worry about the fact we're not giving you support for running this game on your OS, nor worry about the fact you just bought a Windows game and are helping out Windows gaming by doing so, because we're 'going it count it as a Linux sale', yeah, that's it!" and you buying it anyway because you're a gullible sheep is a good thing?

Wow, Microsoft's and Valve's propaganda has worked on some people here apparently, really sad to see. "Count as a Linux sale" is not at all what is happening when you're buying a Windows game and getting zero support for Linux in return. It's a hilarious lie, you're literally helping out Windows gaming and discouraging Linux gaming and support.

The fact you say your conscience is clean reveals it's not. Mine is actually clean because I support Linux gaming by supporting the actual developers who support Linux and help Linux gamers, not the ones who only support Microsoft Windows.

I'm happy for you that you want to play the martyr role until the bitter end, I prefer to live.

lqe5433Please port cuphead

Please no. Cuphead is available outside Steam DRM-Free, if Feral do the port we would lose that.
Thanks but no thanks. (See what happened for games like XCOM...)

You don't suddenly lose the existing DRM-free build that doesn't support Linux, if Feral port it and put their port on Steam. That makes absolutely no sense.

Sorry to be confusing, but that's what I meant you're right. To be clear Cuphead is available on Windows/macOS on Steam and GOG.
If Feral do the port we won't have the build on GOG, that's unfair, and worst than other games since Studio MDHR did the macOS port.
Don't you think that would be very frustrating?

Buying games with Linux support and supporting Linux gaming is being a martyr? Buying Linux games is what Linux gamers do and should do, lol...but if you want to be a Windows gamer, have at it.

You're on the wrong website, though, because this is for Linux game news, not for Windows games. Go to pcgamer.com or something if you want Windows game news and don't care about Linux games.

Yeah, this is the correct attitude to get more people using Linux, excellent thinking!

Do you think the same if someone play a console game with an emulator on a Linux PC? Is he/she a Linux gamer or not?
Argh, I think this is off topic...

I think at this point it is fairly obvious that they are either just trolling or went completely off the deep end with their "us vs them" shtick.
My suggestion in either case is therefore:
