Seems like Feral Interactive may have a few surprises for Linux in 2020

By - | Views: 30,706

Porting studio Feral Interactive [Official Site] have already given Linux a lot of games and it sounds like more are coming.

While this year they've already released Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, a Vulkan beta for Shadow of Mordor, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS and DiRT 4 plus big updates/expansions to Company of Heroes 2 and Total War: WARHAMMER II. Still to come is Life is Strange 2, which Feral previously teased to arrive sometime soon.

After that, we already know Feral is porting Total War Saga: TROY but what about more games, is that the end of it for Linux? Going by their replies to people on Twitter, like this one "We may have a few Linux games planned for 2020... ;)" they seem to indicate there may be some surprises for us next year.

That's good news of course, since Steam Play/Proton was an obvious worry that they might stop porting. There's tons of games that are completely broken with Steam Play and plenty that perform really badly that Feral could certainly do their porting magic with. Actual support would be good too and Feral certainly know what they're doing.

What game would you like to see Feral port to Linux and support?

A GTA: San Andreas port would bring me tears of happiness. Thank you for all the other ports you've already released, Feral!

appetrosyanHonestly, any game that’s not in my steam/gog library. I’d buy it out of principle, comment that the reason why I bought the game was that it had native support. That being said, a game with prohibitive multiplayer software aka anti cheat would be a great option, mainly because these are the only ones you can’t play via proton.
I thought that about multiplayer too, but remember that Feral does NOT support crossplay with Windows on their Total War ports. So would it really be worth it if we got e.g. PUBG but could only play with other linux gamers?

It would be better. Especially if it doesn’t go the RUST way. No crossplay is a problem, but I’m sure it”s mostly held back by the low adoption of Linux. I would imagine that Chinese internet Cafes would adopt Linux if there were sufficiently popular “Killer app” kinds of games.
