Shadow of the Tomb Raider is officially coming to Linux in 2019

Posted by , | Views: 20,610

Originally published by Square Enix and developed by Eidos-Montréal, Feral Interactive confirmed today that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is officially heading to Linux in 2019.

Making sure we have the full experience, with Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider already ported to Linux by Feral this is really quite exciting news! I've no doubt it will be using the Vulkan API, as I'm sure people will be wondering.

This replaces the recent teaser put out earlier this month on the Feral port radar. So we now have Total War: WARHAMMER II arriving today plus Life is Strange 2, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS and Shadow of the Tomb Raider all heading to Linux. Feral sure are busy and that's good for us.

From the press release:

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a vibrant jungle, overcome challenging tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will be forged into the Tomb Raider® she is destined to be.

Lara's quest will take her from the bustling Mexican town of Cozumel to the dark heart of the Peruvian jungle where the hidden city of Paititi awaits. She'll navigate complex underwater caverns, traverse spectacular landscapes, and discover challenging tombs filled with traps. 

Outnumbered and outgunned by Trinity, Lara must become one with the jungle and instill fear in her enemies through using mud as camouflage, disappearing into jungle vines or striking from above while perched in the canopy. 

Let's hope for an early 2019 release. The longer they wait, the more likely it is they will lose sales from Steam Play. I mentioned before in a comment, that their timing will make or break future ports. I'm hoping for many more Feral ports in the years to come, having officially supported ports is great.

We will share more details closer to release and do our usual port report and review.

Comandante ÑoñardoC'mon, Feral! Hurry up!

I'm waiting too, though I'm mentally preparing myself that Feral waits until all DLC's are out, similar like the release for Rise. But this is just guessing from me, really no idea when something can be expected

I suppose I can buy it right now, knowing that Feral will get their cut anyway.

This is what I read, but not sure if this applies here too. I decided to wait until Feral releases, still very much occupied with Dark Souls 3 , and then order from their store.

It makes sense now that the final DLC has arrived...
I hope they hurry up, because the game runs well via PROTON!

Is it on the radar yet? I haven't checked. Either way I don't plan on buying it till it's native even if it works well in proton.

No need to hurry on my part - I can wait for the game, and given how well the previous ran from Feral, the wait will be worth it.

I live in Argentina and I don't know what is going to happen tomorrow, that is why I want the game as soon as possible.

I guess we first have to wait for the Game-of-the-year edition. Though I hope that's not to far off considering all DLC's are released afaik.

I wouldn't be so sure that this is the GOTY version. But lets see what happens. I'm also really looking forward to this one, certainly a first-day-full-price-at-feral-store purchase for me.
