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

Posted by , | Views: 28,915

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?

Hat tip to NuSuey.

Quite frankly, I doubt The Outer Worlds will ever come to Linux, via Feral or otherwise. Same for Cyberpunk 2077.

MohandevirCyberpunk 2077.

What I hope to see is Feral getting new contracts because of Stadia that will let them put these builds on desktop Linux.

With the amount of horsepower, they”re likely to get mostly the multiplayer side of things, because anti-cheat is the ONLY type of game that reliably doesn’t work in Proton or VM.

PatolaWhat CPUs specifically? Mine is a Ryzen 7 2700 and it (RE2 Remake) works perfectly.
It's only for Zen 2 (3xxx series). I have 3700X.
Fixed in Linux 5.4. (latest stable kernel)

I'd love to see Outer Worlds or Borderlands 3 ported. But the biggest benefit Feral bring to my table these days is
a) removing EAC restriction or
b) removing Denuvo

I'd still love to play Vermintide 2 (EAC) or Monster Hunter World (Denuvo), Strange Brigade (Denuvo) or Nier: Automata (Denuvo). I own the first title already, which is a blow, but I'll never buy any title "protected" by Denuvo. Ever.

With the exception of Total Wars games though, to be honest, I've bought every title that Feral released. So I guess I'm a shoe-in regardless!

Do i get pelted with cookies if i say Skyrim ?

CP 2077 but feral doesn't do no-DRM if i recall well.

Now that i am being totally unrealistic, the IL2 flight sim games.

Also convince Bethesda to release their internal port of DOOM 2016. Even if it is working well on proton.

Full cross-platform multiplayer in Company of Heroes 2. I can play cross-platform CoH1 through proton.

Borderlands 3 for sure. GreedFall could interest me. Assassin's Creed Odyssey also sounds good. I would have said Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, but it got so cheap in the Autumn Sale that I went and got it for Proton.

And as always Horizon: Zero Dawn in the "it’s a beautiful dream" category

What do you think of Kingdom come: Deliverance ?
It's a very good game that Proton doesn't manage properly.
And don't tell me about the platinum rating with less than two hours of play: problems occur after the prologue.
A Vulkan port would be fantastic.

I would love to see any Codemasters game. They do a ton of them so they must sell/do well for them. I also love anything Star Wars.

* Grid (2019)
* Dirt Rally 2.0
* Borderlands 3
* Mechwarrior 5
* Jedi Fallen Order
* Command & Conquer Remastered

UPDATED: Added C&C Remastered

Yes, Kingdom Come would be nice. Also the ARMA 2 and 3. The portof ARMA 3 by VP was stopped long ago so no cross platform multiplayer either.

Red Dead Redemption II
The Settlers 2020
