This has been under my radar since the announcement. I'll have to wait until I'm able to buy this. Just in time for the summer sale and the Jurassic World movie.

We Happy Few developer joins Microsoft, still coming to Linux plus new trailer
11 June 2018 at 11:10 am UTC

wolfyrionMicrosoft announced at E3 today that they have acquired Forza Horizon developer PlayGround Games, State of Decay developer Undead Labs, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice developer Ninja Theory, and We Happy Few developer Compulsion Games.

They will also be founding a new studio in Santa Monica called The Initiative. The Initiative is a Santa Monica studio lead by Darrell Gallagher, who Xbox head Phil Spencer said is “a visionary storyteller” who has worked on “some of the most iconic franchises for over 20 years,” such as Tomb Raider.

Well, nice knowing these developers.

Can you even game on Wayland? Maybe with open-source AMD drivers? Last I heard you can't do that with NVidia proprietary drivers and Wayland.

The Humble War Gamez Bundle has a few Linux games for you

stretch611If you do get the bundle, don't forget that you can now choose how much you can give to each developer independently by clicking the arrows on the line in front of the sliders.

You can therefore only support the linux devs... However, if you plan on playing the other games through WINE, I would leave them a token amount anyway. (I haven't used WINE in years except for 1 title, but that is your choice.)

How do you even do that? I've never seen those sliders.

Spud13yAre they selling this game for money or are they giving this game away for free? Because if it's the former, why do they have microtransactions? I don't care if it's cosmetic only. If they're selling the game there is no excuse for this.

From what I understand they plan to sell the game for $15 and also have cosmetic only microtransactions. I believe the microtransactions will be there to fund continued development of new content for the game after it's been released.

Are you saying that if they charge $15 for the game there is no excuse to have cosmetic items?

Yes. If they need more money, they should sell it for more money.

Are you saying they should charge a one time payment for all future development of content?

Yep. Like every other game and possession I own. If they don't want to, they can charge more or give the game away for free.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is now officially available on Linux, here’s a look at it with benchmarks

I might have to tweak the graphics settings a little, because I customized it a little beyond what they said was the highest. Went from 40 to 60 (being my cap). Performance seems fine enough. Got annoying pop-ups before I could get to the launcher telling me that I don't have their CPU tool, the Nvidia drivers they want, or an unsupported OS. I'm rather intrigued with the story, something akin to Indiana Jones (no duh) and Dan Brown books.
