Right after the bad news about Cossacks 3 being delayed, we have some nicer news. Virtual Programming are teasing the Linux port of Overlord in a new video.

They also did a previous video here, where it stated it was coming very soon.

The video isn't exactly inspiring though, no actual gameplay shown and a lot of it is logos.

Their porting has improved for sure, but they still have some ways to go. Some of VP's ports are really bad for me. Arma 3 for example refuses to use any textures above Low, and 99% of the time it's the only option I can pick and they have no idea what's causing it. Their Saints Row ports are also not great with all the stuttering, so I am hoping they continue to improve their porting method. Article taken from

also Arma 3 played fine on AMD with the open source drivers when i tried it on a "free weekend"
but Saints Row 2-3 are really terrible :(

I wish I had not bought it on Windows when it was released. Though, happy to be able to play this wonderful game again. Had a lot of fun with it.

The Arma comments are totally fair, but from what I understand, Saints Row for PC is fairly dodgey for Windows as well. I find them playable, even on Intel graphics (with a wrapper script to force the GL version).
Here's hoping this works out well. It's already in my library, and behaves _bizarrely_ in Wine.

Is there any way to see at which point they are with the arma 3 port? A forum o something like it? Because I haven't seen any progress for quite some time...

VP is teasing a lot of videos lately in their youtube channel... Chronicles of Riddick included.

I don't have many problems with SW3, runs ok here... The only issue is the "infinite loading time" (1 to 5 mins the first load)

I'm giving out my extra copy of this game, go comment here on reddit if you're interested.

Oha. That port would be new (to me). Though, I like Riddick, so I certainly would want that game to release for Linux.
