Metro: Last Light

By on November 7, 2013 at 5:26 pm

4A Games have announced that Metro: Last Light‘s Linux port has been successfully completed and is now available to Steam Linux users. That means the game is now playable on Windows, Mac, and Linux, which is pretty excellent.

They’ve also revealed that the game will come bundled with the Steam Box hardware testing units when they roll out later this year, supporting both the SteamOS and the new Steam Controller.

Excellent news for Linux gamers, as more and more titles continue to make the jump. Get our video review of Metro: Last Light here.

Any game being ported to Linux is a good thing.

That said games that are ported that also don’t require DRM or Steam are even better.

 

I never could get any details about 4A’s plans for Metro 2033 and linux, if any, but I intend to get my hands on Last Light at some point. Gotta finish Metro 2033 first, I guess.

 

When I do get around to getting this (perhaps in a Sale in the future when it is much cheaper) I will look forward to playing this on Linux.

Although as Red Shirt above has mentioned…. gotta finish Metro 2033 first! :D

 

It’s not really informative as I would like to know if they ported all the DX11 effects to OpenGL and also PhysX won’t be in this port since there isn’t Linux support yet, same goes for 3D Vision.

 

realone,

OpenGL has similar functions in it to the DX11 ones, so I’d assume yes. As for PhysX, not sure, but I assume something similar is possible. I would say either do your googling, or try it out for yourself.

As for 3D vision, are you referring to Oculus Rift support, or 3D displays?
