Awesome news for those waiting on it, as GOG now have the Linux build of Forsaken Remastered from Nightdive Studios with porting help from Ryan "Icculus" Gordon.

As a reminder, here's some of the new stuff you can expect to find in it:

  • Support for Widescreen and 4K monitors 
  • Super smooth interpolated movement for 144hz displays and beyond 
  • MSAA and SMAA anti aliasing 
  • Ambient Occlusion and Motion Blur effects 
  • Enhanced and improved particle effects 
  • OpenGL 3.2, DirectX 11 support 
  • New automap feature 
  • Unique levels and enemies featured in the N64 version 
  • Unlockable bonus levels not seen in the original release 
  • Remastered display HUD 

I think it's seriously great that Nightdive continue revamping older games, especially when it's a title I had never played before. I certainly hope they continue working with Icculus to provide Linux ports.

It's actually built using the same engine as the updated releases of Turok 1 and 2, so it uses no code from the original game, which I thought was quite interesting. More on that here.

Grab it on GOG now if you wish.

slaapliedjeNah, for a game this old it probably only uses a small amount of the spec. On the otherhand DX 11 requirement means that it requires Windows 8+, right?

D3D11 was introduced with Win7, IIRC.
ha, I can't remember anymore. Thought DX10 was with 7, and DX11 was Windows 8 and DX12 required Windows 10.

Wasn't DX10 introduced with Vista?
