It was only in January that we saw signs of Shadow Warrior being ported to Linux, and it’s officially due next week! Get ready for some beautifully frantic and brutal action.

We already had the original, but to get the reimagining as well is amazing, and it further shows how far we have come as a gaming platform.

See the official announcement on Steam here.

CPU: 2.4GHz Dual core processor or higher.
GPU: OpenGL 3.2+ supported cards at a minimum, with 512mb of dedicated memory
RAM: 2GB

Recommended Requirements:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 8200/AMD Phenom X4 9950 or higher.

About the game (From Steam)
Shadow Warrior is a bold reimagining of the classic 3D Realms’ shooter from independent developer Flying Wild Hog (Hard Reset) starring the legendary and quick-witted warrior Lo Wang. Combine the brute force of overwhelming firepower with the elegant precision of a katana to annihilate the merciless armies of the shadow realm in an exhilarating and visually stunning transformation of the classic first-person shooter.

Check out Shadow Warrior on Steam. Remember, don’t buy it until the release! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I have posted on the GOG.com forums to ask about if/when this will also appear there:
Shadow Warrior (2013) Linux and Mac - Coming to GOG.com?

It would be nice if the new Rise of the Triad could also makes its way to Linux at some point, not that I am complaining mind. :)

Considering the recent eON wrapper for BioShock Infinite, I'm hoping this will be a real native port and if so I may even pay full price for it.
Liam Dawe 27 Mar, 2015
It will be native guys, it's an in-house port.

Really glad to see this one coming.

Wish Wolfenstein: The New Order would see the same fate. :/

Doubt it will since id software passed to DirectX since Rage. A shame as they were big players in the OpenGL gaming field.

Sweeet!

Now it would be even sweeter if they'd port "Hard Reset: Extended Edition" as well. Sure, Shadow Warrior is better but HR:EE is a great little fps in its own right. I wouldn't mind replaying that, when I felt for just a bit of frantic, mindless shooting. (as a change of pace)

Hm, yeah "W:TNO" was a very nice game and I'd really like the upcoming "Old Blood" expansion package... :-(

their engine is still based on openGL, id tech does NOT use directX, though they don't release their games for linux anymore since they were bought by bethesda
