Saints Row 2 and Saints Row: The Third have been officially released today for Linux and SteamOS.

As announced here, Saints Row 2 and Raints Row: The Third have finally hit Linux. These game ports were done by Virtual Programming. VP's ports lately have been running and performing better than some of their earlier Linux titles, but nevertheless it will be interesting to see how these latest Virtual Programming ports are with their likely usage of the eON wrapper layer. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like these games have any suitable benchmarking support and thus no plans for testing them here.

For marking these few-year-old game releases for Linux/SteamOS, they are currently on sale for 66% off. You can find Saints Row 2 and Saints Row: The Third via Steam.
