    Any info on who is porting it and how it performs on non-nvidia hardware?

        Maybe in-house by Deep Silver?

        SR2 and SR3 are coming from VP, but everything I've seen about that always leaves SR4 off the list.

          Hmm. eON seems to be pretty hit or miss; personally, I don't care about the taboo behind it as long as it works, but it's hard to know if this game will perform ok on AMD. I'm also hesitant because so many of these ports don't support surround sound, even if the Windows version does.

          I'm just getting tired of trying to support half-assed linux ports that I end up playing on Windows instead.

            It's interesting the perspective people have.
            Some would rather a bad port than no port.
            I personally would rather no port over a bad one. I think it gets people's hopes up, and only ends up damaging the SteamOS brand. I only game on Linux and PS4. The bad Linux ports mean I end up playing on my PS4.

              From steam:
              "Recommended Graphics Drivers: Nvidia: 352, 355 or 358 series driver / AMD: AMD Catalyst (fglrx) 15.9 or better. MESA drivers and Intel Graphics are not currently supported."

                Well a bad port can get fixed, but it's harder to fix a no-port.
                I played The Witcher 2 port without any issue, but maybe 6 months after the initial release when it was supposedly really buggy... (I haven't tried to see if it was faster in wine though).

                  Saints Row IV looks nice, just tested it. Had it over a year on my Steam account but never tried before.

                    No Port is better than a bad port.
