Two Worlds Epic Edition openworld action RPG now on GOG for Linux

By - | Views: 8,805

GOG have now added in a Linux build for Two Worlds Epic Edition that requires Wine in order to function.

I have no problem with Wine being used to bring over older games.

Note: GOG requires you to install your own version of Wine to make sure you have the dependencies it needs, even though it actually comes with Wine bundled.

It's good to see GOG are still putting up Linux builds in a reasonably timely manner. GOG tend to be a bit slower at times, as they actually do far more quality control than Steam do.

About the game
At the beginning of your epic adventure, a mercenary mission takes you to the far north - but you’re also following up a mysterious lead at the same time – the first clue you’ve been given since Kyra’s disappearance. You're shocked during a meeting with the delegates of a dark Brotherhood - your sister’s kidnappers are indeed after your family’s relic. Whether there’s any truth in your family being the chosen ones or not, the others obviously believe it - and if you ever want to see Kyra again, you’ll have to act swiftly. You are the only person able to unlock the secrets of a dead god's tomb, and all the forces in the land want your help to seize its power.

Good news only the whole point of bundling WINE with the game should be so that the buyer doesn't even have to think about it. I installed and uninstalled PlayOnLinux and it trashed up my system with leftover WINE folders and menu entries. Any reason they couldn't handle Two Worlds like they did Flat Out?

It's how we received the game from TopWare so it's really not up to us at this point.

TopWare is only publisher, they say they can't change internal code. By the way, they told us that every game they published will have Linux support sooner or later

You can get rid of them:
Wine - Removing menu entries
Wine - Unregister existing Wine file associations

You may also add an environment variable to disable this "feature" in their wine launch script:
export WINEDLLOVERRIDES="winemenubuilder.exe=d"
See Wine - Prevent new Wine file associations

Nice! ^_^

Installed, played about 30 minutes and it works perfectly (Radeon HD 5850, mesa driver).

The only thing that annoyed me about Two Worlds and its squeal was the somewhat chunky animation system. Its why I turned to RISEN as an alternative game, it had better combat/animation, at least the first one did at the time.

I will definitely try to get his sometime! It sounds like a cool game and I have never liked the negative attitude many Linux gamers seems to have against Wine. It seems like if Wine ports are stigmatized than we just won't get older titles ported, and there are a LOT of older titles that I want to see ported! Wine is fine by me.
