Feral Interactive Announces Release Window for Tomb Raider’s Linux Version

Developer Crystal Dynamics’ 2013 reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise is officially heading to Linux, publisher Feral Interactive confirmed today.

Feral Interactive, who has been responsible for porting titles such as Alien: Isolation and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to Linux, has revealed that Tomb Raider will be targeting a release window for this spring.

“We are delighted to be bringing one of gaming’s best-loved franchises to Linux in the exhilarating form of Tomb Raider,” says David Stephen, managing director of Feral Interactive.

“It traces Lara’s evolution from amateur explorer to battle-hardened survivor in an amazing adventure that Linux gamers will relish.”

Tomb Raider is the first main installment in the well-known franchise to be released on Linux, according to Feral Interactive, with the title also supporting Ubuntu and SteamOS.

Feral Interactive has revealed that Tomb Raider will be retailing at $19.99 (£14.99/€19.99) on the Feral Store and Steam.

Tomb Raider publisher Square Enix has sold over eight million copies of the title since its initial release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2013.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, an updated version that included all the DLC from the 2013 title, was released in 2014 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Yesterday, Square Enix confirmed an official release date for the third and final DLC expansion for Tomb Raider’s sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider.

In other Tomb Raider news, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley has been linked with playing the iconic Lara Croft on the silver screen.
