Civilization: Beyond Earth will see its native Linux port released this Thursday by Aspyr Media.

Aspyr Media has been porting Civilization: Beyond Earth to Linux the past few months and they've had a lot of issues to overcome -- primarily around Linux GPU drivers. Originally it looked like the Linux version of this Sid Meier game would drop AMD and Intel graphics support due to driver issues but now that support should be better, albeit the best Linux gaming experience will still most likely be with NVIDIA graphics using the binary blob.

Aspyr announced today that the worldwide Linux release is coming this Thursday at 18 December, 12PM CST. They announced the release date today via the GameAgent blog.
