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

Posted by , | Views: 27,679

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!

I'm absolutely like that cow, you know the one in the nursery rhyme? Over the moon. Well done Feral Interactive I already own the game but shall be donating the full price of this game to you fabulous people. Thank you so much. The only other Windows game we need on Linux now, well for me anyway is GTA5, but I cannot see that happening at all.

When I played this on Windows 10 about a month ago it crashed big time, processor which is an AMD A10-5800K APU Quad core got way too hot, but then again Windows runs way too many things in the background, plus it takes the whole OS into running one simple thing. So really looking forward to the port, so I can finally nearly say bye, bye Windows for good. I do not have Windows installed anymore, simply because Linux is getting so good now.

A bit late to the "me too" party but anyway... yes please! I'll be picking this up on release from the Feral store.

I'm hoping vulkan will mean an end to their "we only officially support nVidia cards" stance that they've had on some of their titles because I WANT THIS GAME. XD

I know that it has not been always the case but all games ported by Feral work on AMD now, no? (with recent versions of MESA and despite what some of the Steam requirements indicate) The problem wasn't really Vulkan (or OpenGL version) but more on the availability of drivers (from AMD or Open Source) versions supporting it (or OpenGL > 3) in most distributions (and SteamOS mainly). Feral contribute to MESA development since some time now...

Well, he does have the same right to not want a certain game as another has to want it.

KimyrielleGood to see Square Enix is still committed! After not seeing anything from them making its way to Linux for a while, I was getting worried!

Hitman was still square enix when it was announced for linux that came out last year, io went indie after the linux port was out.
