If Shadow of Mordor on Linux is too demanding for your graphics card, you may be interested in the upcoming ET: Legacy update that provides new functionality while retaining compatibility with the legendary Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory (v2.60b) game.

A Phoronix reader pointed out that the ET: Legacy 2.73 release is soon expected to happen. The ET: Legacy 2.73 release is adding optimized LAN player detection, a number of bug-fixes, Unicode support on the client, updated libraries, console smooth scrolling support, mod updates, and fixes for some server issues. There's also a wide-range of smaller optimizations over their current stable ET: Legacy 2.72 release. Compatibility with the original Wolfenstein Enemy Territory 2.60b is still maintained by this open-source project.

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, one of the best Linux-friendly games ever.

More details on the changes for ET: Legacy can be found from their change-log. Wolfenstein Enemy Territory was one of my favorite (Linux) games back when I was a gamer (let alone had the time to play a game) and so if you're looking for a legendary classic, go checkout to see the current community-based, open-source work to let this game live on. ET: Legacy has been in the works for a few years.
