      Argh, and I'm already partway through Shadow of Mordor on Windows. Oh well, I'm on the Radeon driver so it'd probably run like crap on my Linux box anyway.

      Glad to see Batman. Is that using UE4? If so that's encouraging given that it's likely to be one of the more used engine for AAA, we might see more stuff on Linux.

            Initially, not a single one. It's possible a "Vulkan Patch" might come at a later date. I wouldn't expect to see any game utilizing Vulkan until 2016, very late 2015 at the absolute earliest.

                With GRID Autosport finally the first normal racing game is coming to Linux. Will buy when it is ready.
                And finally Torchlight II was released for Linux! It's downloading right now.

                    Since Dota 2 seems to be using Vulkan, and Valve already announced a big engine upgrade first half of 2015, it's not strange to assume Dota 2 will have Vulkan support earlier.
