Stellaris MegaCorp expansion and the 2.2 'Le Guin' free update are now both out
7 December 2018 at 10:01 am UTC

Gave this a go last night. To be honest the changes are for the better. The biggest change is to planet/pops. Takes a little to get your head round but it seems to work better.

Not that far into the new game I started to play last night so there maybe other changes that it's done that am no aware of yet.

There is the annoyance of Robot/Mechanical races now needing food for some reason


@Samsai When we all having a go again ?

cRaZy-bisCuiTGuys, any updates?

Eagerly waiting too

Nothing imminent. I think in the past the Linux versions of X games came out several months after initial launch, usually benefitting from all the bug fixes and tweaking of the Windows version. Sadly, the Windows version doesn't work with Steam Play, which is surprising as the Windows version works via Vulkan.

Seem to remember Rebirth being a day one

Valve have some serious competition, with the Epic Games Store being announced

liamdaweI think people need to look outside the bubble for a moment. Look at what happened with Steam, we didn't think it was really coming and it eventually did. At that time, Valve also had nothing on Linux.

Why are people instantly counting Epic out, when the situation is the same? Like I said in the article, there's no other "open" platform left - it's got to be Linux.

Not read all the post so forgive if already been pointed out.

I give some reasons why some are counting them out(Me included)

I remember this game called UnrealTounament 3 that we were apparently getting on our platform! Am still waiting despite Ryan had finished the port, yes I was one of those fools that had bought it too.

There Unrealengine which is now usable on linux mostly down to the community still has no launcher/store UI

Then there's what appears to be their most successfully game to date, Forteninght! and guess what, no linux client.

So liam you can understand why most are writing them off.

But lets be real here, it's well known that Epic is near as damnit a MS studio and has for a number of years.

Hope am wrong and they do support linux but I'll not hold my breath!

linuxjacquesThey need time to start thinking about when they are going to start working on the Linux beta?

Doesn't sound like it's coming any time soon. :-|

Well, if their Linux dev is still the same guy they hired prior to Albion Prelude, you don't have to worry, he's really good.

Is that Timmo ?

dubigrasuNew release: https://www.basemark.com/blog/basemark-gpu-1-1-update-released/

Wonder if this one works on AMD
Both versions are working for me with Mesa, but only GL mode. In Vulkan mode the benchmark also works, but the screen is filled with red artifacts.
