So any idea who is doing the port? Hope 2K responds.

Well it’s a nice news as it seems people generally like this game. Personally I bought Bioshock 1 and 2 but can’t be bothered to finish the first one… Hopefully Infinite is better!

Well here's the itty bitty preview picture if anyone wants to study it. Maybe come up with an idea...

Any chance this also means Batman 3 might also come to Linux?

I've been waiting for this for a while. I've been expecting this for no reason other than its a recent game from 2k and they've been kind to Linux. I will buy when it is released.

BL2 is not really a graphically intensive game. It does run well in Linux though (except for edge cases like mine). Would be awesome if we could get GPU physx for it as BL uses it right.

I have faith infinite will run well if it is Feral and it is the game on the radar, I just wonder if there is going to be compromises to the graphics compared to windows, which is mainly why I was asking about the performance and graphics on Mac as it would be a decent indication of it.

If it does come to Linux and it is as gorgeous as it is in windows it will be hands down the best looking game on Linux.

SeredPlayed it on Windows with my 3 year old AMD 6950 HD on 1920x1200 (16:10 ftw!) and it worked like a charm!
with the settings cranked to the max? I'm sure a lot of setups can run it turned down some.

Can't verify but as far as I remember, pretty much, yes.

But I must admit, I don't care if I have 8 times anti-aliasing or 16 times and stuff like that. If it runs good and looks okay, I'm completely content.

I don't really care for graphics, that's the least important part of a game to me. Still not unimportant, but not really #1 on my personal priority list. (Also I don't have access to PhysX and stuff.)

I also strictly use the open source drivers on linux and performance-wise Borderlands 2 runs nearly as good as on Windows, so I hope that this would be the case for BioShock 3 as well. (Feral did a really great job with porting X-Com!)

I already own it, so when this comes out I'll buy it again and give to this site to give out/whatnot.

I know people who'd want it but they dont game on Linux so screw em!

I guess it is kind of one of those "to each his own" kind of deals. I'm a PC gamer because I like the eye candy and running games at their fullest potential. I would just own a PS4/XBone if that wasn't the case.

With my new setup (i7 5930k + 3x gtx 970's) I can blast through it at 5760x1080.. such a beautiful game. It might not be the worlds most graphically intensive game.. but it uses what it has to great effect.

Hope it does come to Linux.. can't wait to try it out.

EKRboiAssuming it is Bioshock: Infinite. Has anyone played it on Mac? How is the performance? It really likes some GPU horse power.. going to be really rough on Linux to push the settings without a beast of a single card or proper multi gpu support which we just don't have.

When I played it in win @ 1920x1080 it beat up my 2 gtx 580's.

Black and White 2? Hm, would pass on that one. Played the hell out of it years ago and to be honest, although I really enjoyed it back then, I wouldn't bother playing it again.

The major drawback of the game is, that it is completely unfinished. You have a campaign with a really stupid AI and that's it. No Multiplayer (although it was promised), no "endless mode" of any kind, just a campaign you can play over and over again.

I admit it is funny, until a few hours in. No, this would be a game I'd pass.

KhudsaA question. If you wait until the game is released for Linux, but you want a boxed copy. What happens if you buy a boxed version, activates it under Linux and play it under Linux? It counts as a Linux sale and the money goes to the guys who ported the game?

Thanks.

It will note it's a boxed copy (steam has depots and info for boxed copies), and pay the appropriate people. If you want the Linux sale, buy it on Linux and play it on Linux/

WOW.

If you don't yet own it, get it and play it when it has got the penguin.

It is GREAT.

dtandersonI think it is Black and White 2, it was just released for Mac. It is a battle of Gods type game....
That would be incredible!! I bought that game when it came out, but the wife muscled in and by the time she'd completed it, I had not time to play...

tuxisagamerAge of Kings, maybe?

That would be a dream true and pretty much the only AAA game I have any interest in whatsoever except Age of Mythology and the LEGO games.

I'd think Empire Total War, thanks to the picture and the fact they've done the port for Mac.

Everything from the SteamDB to the song and picture (Soldier's field amusement park) seems to designate Bioshock Infinite and it is probably "the game you already like".

Thanks to Compholio for the song and GBee for the Soldier's field researches.

If not... Empire: Total War. This is the other Feral port in the linux SteamDB and it would match the Emperor penguin picture. But I don't think so, unless the radar signal is for both games... Which I doubt.

abelthorne"Rock Band: Tears for Fears edition"?

Rofl! Hilarious! I'm too visual and I get some funny images when I think of that possibility.

I think its Tropico 3 & 4. Or a really cool RTS. Age of Kings, maybe? Nah, Microsoft would never let one of their own studio games be ported. Would they?

Well that certainly casts doubt on my theory. Well I hit google and found this:
http://bioshock.wikia.com/wiki/Soldier%27s_Field

As I noted before, the image appears to show soldiers in front of a field type landscape. So perhaps a reference to Bioshock Infinite after all.

GBeeThe linux/mac icons on the feral radar weren't there yesterday ...

They had said they would be adding linux games to the radar. In fact they did it once previously but then removed them because it wasn't clear which games were for which platform.

"Everybody wants to rule the world" is a brand new addition. I immediately think of XCom, but they've already released that so it must be something else? The picture, when blown up appears to show ranks of soldiers armed with rifles or pikes, so based on the games Feral have previously ported I'd say it has to be one of the Total War series - Napoleon maybe? The artwork style seems to be a good match - https://www.feralinteractive.com/en/mac-games/napoleontw/media//teaser.php?codename=Everybody+Wants+to+Rule+the+World

If it's not for Bioshock Infinite, based on the SteamDB, it's probably Empire: Total War. A radar entry for both?
