Rise of the Tomb Raider announced for Linux, port from Feral Interactive

Posted by , | Views: 27,686

Many asked, now Feral Interactive have answered. Rise of the Tomb Raider [Steam] is officially on the way to Linux! What a fantastic way to start a Tuesday with news like this! It still amazes me to this day that Linux will have games like this, very happy with the news!

Feral aren't saying exactly when it will arrive, but they had a tweet out that said "This Winter" which has since been deleted (Edit: replaced with this one). You can see the official confirmation on their official site which now says "This spring", so it could be here sometime between March and late June.

The advantage of getting a game later than Windows, is we get the 20 Year Celebration edition which has all the DLC.

For those wondering, it will indeed use Vulkan on Linux! This is confirmed at the bottom of the Features page on the mini-site.

Here's the trailer Feral put up:

The game has been loved by reviewers and users alike, so it looks like it will be a solid hit for Linux gamers after more Lara. It takes the first game and makes nearly all aspects of it bigger and better than before, including more actual Tombs.

It seems this is the game that has replaced the previous Linux port teaser of "O VAIN ILLUSION OF GLORY AND GRANDEUR" that was put up back in October of last year. We still have to discover the game behind the "It's just a shot away" teaser that was put up in January, so there's more on the way remember!

GuestSo to get this right

If I want to support Feral, I can only do so by buying the game directly from their website?

They will get money when you buy it for Linux on a "proper" store (like Steam, GoG and some others), but that will be deducted by some shop share (Steam's is said to be 30%). Buying at their store would be optimal. You're getting a Steam key there.

I already have this game in my Steam library (from a bundle? Humble Monthly?), but I'm confused about what exactly I have there.

The DLCs are not marked as owned, so I don't have the "20 Year Celebration" edition, I guess? So I'd still need to buy the season pass? Does this include the "Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration Pack" one? Grrr...

In short, what exactly do I need to buy to have everything?

I think that would be Season Pass and Celebration Pack. Not 100% sure.

Geppeto35Nice, let's work on Shadow of War now Feral :-P ^^

No thanks. We don't need lootboxes, and other extras in a single player game. Also it is just not a good game.

One youtuber I watch made a pretty interesting argument about Shadow of War. He was trying to decide whether loot boxes had ruined the game by introducing an excessive grind. And he eventually decided that what was wrong with the game could not even be fixed by spending money. They simply failed to make the late game interesting enough to want to keep playing. Sad really.

I'm not much of an FPS or Action Adventure player. But I can see there is a huge demand, a lot of people really looking forward to this.

Cool stuff, it's a AAA coming to Linux, and again thanks to Feral.

Will definitely buy this! Thank you very much Feral

The first part got an offer (50%):

I found it surprsingly good.
I wasn't "spoiled" by playing earlier Lara Croft games though, so my expectations were... "open".

Fantastic news, I love Feral! now I hope for the seven the days long gone ... And Metro exodus ....

Great NEWS! So we know in future if cookies are not an option for pushing to get a game on Linux, just give them the "Most anticipated game" award, and things start to happen.
