Besides Valheim, there hasn't been much in the way of native Linux game releases recently to really get excited about with much of the activity these days being through Valve's Steam Play for running Windows games on Linux. But in April there will be at least two high profile native Linux game releases.

First up, Metro Exodus will make its native Linux debut. Metro Exodus was released by 4A Games back in February 2019 as the newest Metro game under Windows. While users have been successful in getting Metro Exodus working with Steam Play / Proton, 4A Games has been working on native ports to Linux and macOS.

4A Games is bringing Metro Exodus to Linux and macOS on 14 April.

Separately, Feral Interactive announced Total War: Rome Remastered. This isn't just a Linux game port but a remastering of Total War: Rome across Windows / macOS / Linux. Total War: Rome Remastered has improved visuals, new content, multi-player working across platforms, other new features, and more.

Feral is releasing Total War: Rome Remastered on April 29. More details at Feral Interactive.
