In this post we will show some important games that have already been released for Linux and that are still coming out.
Gone are the days when "Linux had no games" or "Linux does not run games". This has been dropping steadily each year, thanks to efforts by companies like Valve (owner of Steam), GoG, Nueevem and Feral to make games initially made for Windows run in Linux environments.
Another initiative that took over 2018, was the popularization of the VULKAN graphics API, which brings numerous improvements to the games and also being multiplatform, this helps the devs to more easily port games to various platforms such as Linux, Windows and macOS
Today we will show some games which have already been released for Linux and which ones will still be. The list is pretty cool, highlighting two Battle Royale games.
Let's start with the titles that have already been released:
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War Surviving Mars Horizon Chase Turbo
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Ion Maiden (preview campaign)
Dead Cells (early access, release of the final version soon)
For the king
Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition
Battle Chasers: Nightwar
Full Metal Furies
Wizard of Legend
As an honorable mention, we have the beta of Turok 2: Seed of Evil, Desperados – Wanted Dead or alive, POSTAL Redex, SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis Classics and many others who do their own games for Linux.
In the other part of the list, we will show some titles that are with their expected releases for the second half of this year (2018) and early next year (2019). The games are:
Crazy Justice (Battle Royale) "Between July 20 – July 30";
Two Point Hospital – August 30;
Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Feral team size;Total War: WARHAMMER II – Feral team size;Mavericks (Battle Royale) – Late 2018 – Beginning of 2019. We also did an article showing 7 sites / stores that you can buy games for Linux and have a few hours of fun.
Well, this list can be endless as you like, because in each game category there may be your favorite and in this list we only show some important games. But tell us in the comments which game you would like to see ported to Linux.
