Released – Metro: Last Light for Linux and Steam OS Support
According to the studio and its publisher, 300 members of the Steam community chosen to receive prototype Steam Machines will find a copy of Metro: Last Light included with their hardware to test it out.
“We are excited by the prospect of bringing the ultimate Metro experience, powered by next-gen PC hardware into the living room,” said Oles Shishkovstov, Chief Technical Officer at 4A Games. “Metro: Last Light will be a great showcase for Steam OS and the Steam Controller.”
Additionally, the game already supports Steam Play, so owners of any Steam version will automatically find the game added to their Windows PC, Mac, and Linux Steam libraries.
The Linux section of Steam is looking pretty healthy these days, it must be said. Alright, big flabby mainstream games from big flabby mainstream publishers are in relatively short supply, but recent fare like Foot-to-ball Commander 2014, Democracy 3, Crusader Kings 2 and Amnesia A Machine For Pigs are sat there happily, like it ain’t no thing.
