The game we are talking about is Bioshock Infinite. 2k Games has confirmed the rumors that have been floating around for a couple of weeks now. Bioshock Infinite is powered by the Unreal Engine 3 which is featured in a few other games that are in the process of being ported to Linux and more than a few games that have been ported to the BSD based OSX.
There are still some lingering issues with moving to the Penguin’s home though. Many people have reported graphical issues including poor frame rates and other glitches in rendering that would make a game less enjoyable. The sad part is that these issues are out of the hands of the game devs and fall into AMD and nVidia’s lap. Until they put more time into make their Linux drivers stable gaming on Linux will still remain a novelty/niche item.
Let’s hope things change, it would be interesting to see another player in the OS market and what strong Linux support would do to both Microsoft and Apple…
