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

By - | Views: 30,712

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.

The games I would like to see a Linux port of most would be:

1. The Council
2. Vampyr
3. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
4. Call of Cthulhu
5. DOOM Eternal

I tried to keep it to games I actually think have a chance. Red Dead II would be an awesome game to have ported but it requires Rockstar Social Club so they would have to drop that or port it to Linux and I don't see either happening. Hellblade would be awesome but Microsoft owns the people who made it so I doubt that happens. Any Epic store exclusive also probably won't happen at least soon.

I have no real needs for them to port anything; my library is full of stuff I haven't had time to play, anyway. But I'm happy for everyone else if they port good stuff.

PatolaIt works on my rig absolutely perfect except for the poor performance (specially on the Rattay Tourney). And I've played it for almost 50 h so far.
Yeah. I played it start to finish, 150 hours or so, with minor issues only. Performance was poor, but so is my hardware ;-). Though as there are plenty reports of people with vastly better hardware and same poor performance, a native port would definitely be appreciated. Also, not to forget, during their Kickstarter they listed Linux as a supported platform.

To be honest, I prefer original studios to do the porting, this way there are no gatekeepers who decide where something is released - original owners can decide.

Once Linux is treated as a normal platform, there is no need for porting houses.
