XpanderLooks good, but single player only

Nope - coop will come!

"Yes, coop will come first. We have many systems in place already. It will be the first big update after EA release."

That is unfortunate indeed. Sandbox games are best played with friends.

If it has a good story, say like Subnautica, Don't Starve or The Forest, then i guess its not a big problem, but yeah those types of games are usually more fun to play with friends

The super sweet survival and base-builder 'MewnBase' is now on Steam

This looks interesting but again, sadly only singleplayer. Do you know if they have plans for multiplayer?
i feel like survival games need multiplayer, unless they have really good story like Subnautica or Don't Starve

bird_or_cageFor those using Steam and unfamiliar with how launch options work there, you need to go to game`s Properties - Set launch options and put %command% -force-vulkan there.
You only need what's mentioned, %command% is not needed.

yeah %command% is only needed when you want to execute something before starting the executable

DiRT 4 is officially coming to Linux, port from Feral Interactive

Perkeleen_VittupääMore premium rallying videos from the Estonian guy Xpander on radar

Probabably not. Doesn't seem that good of a game for wheel driving.

melkemindYou really just made that up, didn't you? It has "generally favorable" reviews and has even won awards. I obviously don't have sales numbers but the fact they're going ahead with a port would suggest it has solid sales numbers as well.

where? 65% on steam last time i checked which results mixed feelings.

Handling is pretty trash for this game, the procedural generated tracks while interesting idea are more repeative than real tracks. Road surfaces are boring(not many bumps and holes and so on)

i mean it probably is fine game for some money, but for the asking price of 55€, naah pass.


Still i think its good to see more racing games on Linux, just i think feral wont make much money from it. will see though

edit. sales numbers dont add up anymore since the steam changes, but last i checked at the beginning of this year it was 700k sells fro dirt rally and 70k for dirt 4, yeah ofc dirt rally has been around longer. now steamdb reports 200,000 .. 500,000 to Dirt 4 and 1,000,000 .. 2,000,000 for Dirt Rally

a bit late port to a game that hasn't been successul and is mediocre at the best. I guess at least a game thats not grand strategy on the list

Hoping DiRT Rally 2.0 port will be day one or relly close to release though.

Looks like both A Hat in Time and Gravel are coming to Linux, ports from Virtual Programming

Great news that they are still working on something. Hopefully they will bring Vulkan this time around as MXGP3 was pretty bad in terms of performance.

Gravel looks interesting

Nice! And yeah its performing really good. One of those Unity games that goes into the list that performs amazingly.

I will wait for the multiplayer co-op before i jump back in though.
