Survival horror Alien: Isolation might be coming to Linux, according to the Steam database

alien_isolation_survival_horro_game_coming_to_linux

While we know that some games are coming with Linux support, the AAA title Alien: Isolation looks like it might be making a native #debut. Which we here at Linux Game News did not expect from Creative Assembly, who already released some of the #TotalWar #series on the platform. Still, we were surprised when users found the potential title port on the Steam Database, with the “app” and “pre-DLC” listings being obvious as you scroll down. Which is interesting, seeing larger titles are usually advertised with native Linux support ahead of time, as opposed to just listing platform support in the Steam Database.

Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance.
Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.

  • Overcome an ever-present deadly threat – Experience persistent fear as a truly dynamic and reactive Alien uses its senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.
  • Improvise to survive – Hack systems, scavenge for vital resources and craft items to deal with each situation. Will you evade your enemies, distract them or face them head on?
  • Explore a world of mystery and betrayal – Immerse yourself in the detailed setting of Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Encounter a rich cast of inhabitants in a world scarred by fear and mistrust.

Any information listed in the Steam Database is not always 100 percent accurate, even though the information posted is a record for every Steam game Valve support. But Steam Machines are coming this fall, so we can probably expect to see more titles looking to make a Linux debut. And from a marketing perspective, this would be the better time to do so. Stay tuned!!

Keep up to date with the latest details and follow Alien: Isolation on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube.

The information about the Linux version is taken from the CDR database and by no means is it completely certain. The CDR Database is a record of data that describes every Steam game and subscription provided by Valve for the Steam service.

Usually, the new entries in the Steam database are first visible in the CDR Database before their official launch.
