Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Jacks Into Linux

I’m sure Adam Jensen thinks himself a cool cyberpunk sticking it to The Man, with his cyberarm and cybershades and Beppebeard, but he doesn’t truly know what it means to hack the planet. We’ve never even seen him use Linux, let alone rip some sweet nollie flips on his skateboard. You can now show him up. Porting house Feral Interactive today launched the Linux version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] so you can put Jensen to shame while playing as him. Maybe don’t play while skateboarding without serious augmentation, though. Read the rest of this entry »

Devil Daggers Summons New Skulls, Top-Down Replays

New satanskulls are now roaming the darkness of Devil Daggers [official site], thanks to an update launched today. Along with new enemies, the ‘V3′ update has added a top-down viewing mode for replays, which makes the FPS’s arena shoot ’em up stylings even clearer. It’s both cool to look at and helpful, as finally I can learn about the horrors I only ever hear behind me. Also new: a Linux version.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Jacking Into Linux & Mac

Yeah, yeah I hacked my cyberlegs to run a custom kernel I compile myself. You’ve got to, you know. The Man fills your legs with all sorts of spyware, you know. Yeah, the ‘Aug Incident’ and all that but did you know The Man can read your pedometer count, correct your gait for you, and even jack olfaction sensors to tell when you last changed your socks? No mate, it’s Linux for my legs.

Which is to say that planet-hackers should be pleased that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] is on its way to Linux. They might scoff at news it’s coming to Mac too.

Darkest Dungeon Comes To Linux, Adds Town Events

Darkest Dungeon [official site] feels like it’s been a part of my life for a very long time but it only officially launched this January. A prolonged (and productive) period of Early Access made the actual release somewhat hazy in my mind. Even now, the game continues to grow and the latest update brings a fully supported Linux build and new town events. Developers Red Hook have also reiterated their commitment to improved modding support.

Batman Foils Penguin: Arkham Knight Scraps Linux, Mac

Oh dear. It’s a shame that Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] has been such a mess on PC because it is a pretty fun game. But it was pulled from sale the day after launching due to its awful performance, took five months to relaunch, and was still a bit wonky after that. That’ll sour impressions a touch. Now Arkham Knight’s planned Mac and Linux versions are cancelled. Even though Batman himself digs *nix! Oh dear.

Latest Terraria Update Brings Mac And Linux Support

The amazing work of CraTeR, who you can find more stuff from on the media page of the Terraria site.

Mac and Linux support for indie games is sort of like the rolling spaceship from Prometheus. Everyone thinks you can just get it out of the way but it’s a little more difficult than that when you’re actually in the hotseat. Terraria [official site] first launched in 2011 as an adorable and fun 2D alternative to big boy creative juggernaut Minecraft. Since then it’s had numerous spin-offs and a sequel announced, plus three huge updates that make it almost unrecognisable from that initial product. But this week, finally, OSX and Linux players have access to the game.

TUXFACE: CryEngine Adds Linux Support

The mythical ‘Year of the Linux Desktop’ never arrived as explosively as many predicted (surprise surprise) but the open-source operating system (don’t even start, pedants – it’s been a long week and I will tear your windpipe out with my own gnarled hands) has steadily become a fairly attractive alternative to Windows. Games were always a big problem, but look at us today: most major game engines run on Linux, and Valve have made a dedicated gaming OS out of it.

You can now add CryEngine to your list of Linux Game Things, as Linux support arrived in its latest update. Crytek also added native Oculus Rift support.
