Alien: Isolation was supposed to be released for Linux in late September with the porting done by Feral Interactive but they ended up delaying the release. Today though Alien: Isolation is now available for Steam on Linux!

Alien: Isolation is a single-player, action-adventure game developed by Creative Assembly. Alien: Isolation was released for Linux last year. You can read a bit more about the game on Wikipedia.

The Linux port was done by Feral Interactive, so it should be quite good, especially as they had delayed the release originally to work out issues. However, Alien: Isolation is just working right now for NVIDIA Linux drivers/hardware with AMD and Intel currently being unsupported.

In celebration of the game's Linux debut, Alien: Isolation is currently selling for 50% off via the Steam Store for $25 USD. If there is a working, automated-friendly Linux benchmark mode for this game, you can expect to see many NVIDIA Linux GPU tests of this game on Phoronix soon.
