Surprise, F1 2017 for Linux appears on SteamDB

Posted by , / 19608 views

Suprised? No? Okay. After Feral Interactive [Official Site] directly asked to see a demand for F1 2017 and then the official F1 2017 twitter account had a little leak, F1 2017 for Linux has turned up on SteamDB.

Now this has popped up on SteamDB (it's a long one, but here's a glimpse):

600621/name: Linux - F1 2017 Binary

There's a lot more to indicate it, so it may very well end up coming to Linux. I bet there's going to be a number of happy faces in our comments if it does get officially announced.

The game has just released today with Windows/Mac support, with the Mac version done by Feral.

Will you buy a copy if it does come to Linux?

I'm going to buy it the same day they release the port
Joeyboots80 26 August 2017 at 8:36 am UTC
I have already bought it. In my imagination.

I'm very pleased to see more an more big games being ported to Linux. Unfortunately I neither own a wheel nor an appropriate GPU.

OT: Is there a good casual-arcade racing game on Linux like NFSU or Distance?

KimyrielleSo they managed to port the game more or less overnight after asking if people wanted? Including securing permissions?

That or they decided to port that game LOOOOOOONG before asking in public.

What's more likely?

very good question.
it actually makes the poll on peoples interest of a port look extremely ridiculous...

I'm still more into GT/Hill Climb and long tracks, lost interest in formula one a while ago.. so it's not very likely i'd buy it... but it's good to see high quality games being ported, that improves the attractivity of linux overall, though the response here for the port was mixed...

you might try "jet racing extreme".. it's a little bit different - not the usual type of racing - but very cool stuff anyway and lots of fun... can be a bit hard to master... though it's in early access currently it can already be played quite well and for the current price you get very much content with reasonable hardware requirements...

Feral, you will sell my copy, thanks!

Linux port is not out yet, just appeared on SteamDB. Also, chances are it's not a difficult port since I'm certain it's not an entirely new engine between releases.

I would buy it in a heartbeat if my Fanatec wheel worked in Linux.

I don't think so.

First : Ego Engine is a familiar one for them from their previous ports.

Second and main reason : When they asked it , they were already close to finish port. The reason why they done a requestinator , simple.

They just want to ensure of sales coming from Linux gamers by simply making them giving promises with signing up to request pages.

West Norwood was F1 2017. It was once merged as MacOS and Linux icons. And then it seperated with MacOS version at a sooner radar zone while Linux version lagging behind.
Right now ; MacOS and Windows ver of F1 2017 is available while Linux version is only appeared on SteamDB.

Just like the radar pointed out.

And then ; West Norwood disappeared for both of them.

Linux version was planned all from the beginning , they just add a little bit drama in it.
