Giblets: Codemasters’ F1 2015 is being ported to Linux by Feral Interactive


Codemasters’ F1 2015 was a decent game all in all, and included some spectacular visuals that satisfied my need for speed wholly. But while it was great on console, the PC version suffered some hiccups here and there, and this affected review scores as a result. With the ship mostly righted for now, it looks like Codemasters is preparing to release a port of the game done by Feral Interactive for Linux systems. According to a news blog on Feral’s website that has since been removed, the studio will soon be putting up the port, and recently had a closed alpha test to see how the game ran on certain systems. The port could land before the end of June 2016.

In related news, it turns out that Square Enix is paying close attention to Linux as well. The studio has recently seen to a port being made for Tomb Raider on Linux, and Feral has also handled this particular project. The minimum requirements for the game include an Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD FX-6300 processor, a NVIDIA Geforce GT 640 or AMD Radeon R7 260X, 4GB of system RAM and particular graphics driver versions from NVIDIA and the open-source AMD Mesa drivers. AMD’s performance on Linux is still not stellar, but Tomb Raider should be more than playable on most NVIDIA-running systems.
