o celebrate the Focus Home Interactive Publisher Weekend, Focus Home Interactive has partnered once again with Steam to offer special promotions on the entirety of its game catalog. For 5 days, until the 11th of September, Steam users will discover over 50 original Focus Home titles. All available with exceptional discounts for just a few days. Which does include some Linux and Ubuntu games. As well as a heap of Windows and Mac in the mix.
On the menu this year, recent releases include action-RPG The Surge. Which enthralled hardcore players with its original, fast-paced and visceral combat system. With even more content to come later this year. We also find stealth game Styx: Shards of Darkness, which saw the return of our sneaky goblin Styx this year. Yet now receiving a warm welcome from players and press alike.
Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 fans will also find a wealth of games to dive into. Since the recent release of the Legendary Edition of Blood Bowl 2 and the spectacular space battles of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. There’s also the tactical, bloody combat of Mordheim: City of the Damned and the frantic first-person shooting of Space Hulk: Deathwing, which is building up to the release of its Enhanced Edition later this year with regular, free content updates for all owners of the game.
At the heart of a rich and varied catalog, players can also benefit from exceptional discounts on must-have titles including the Farming Simulator phenomenon, the role-playing games from Spiders studio, the strategy franchise Wargame (Linux, Mac, Windows), and some true gems of the indie scene with Seasons After Fall, Space Run (Linux, Mac, Windows), Shiness (Windows, but supposed to be coming to Linux), and many more.
The catalog of Focus will soon be busy with upcoming release of anticipated action-RPG Vampyr. And Spintires: Mudrunner, the ultimate version of the Off-Road simulation reference Spintires. Which already has over a million players. Both of these titles are available right now for pre-order with their respective offers.
Not all games are created equally:
So there are some great games in the publisher weekend sale. Yet only a couple have Linux and Ubuntu ports. That being said, Wine/PlayOnLinux is a healthy choice. Quite often allowing games to run better via Linux then on Windows. So choose wisely, hence WineDB.
