LINUX GAMING --
Aspyr Media announced earlier today that Civilization VI for Linux is finally shipping this week.

Civilization VI will be shipping for Linux on Thursday, 9 February, at a discounted price of $47.99 per Aspyr Media.

Only NVIDIA graphics are officially supported on Linux, but Aspyr did confirm via Twitter that AMD graphics on Linux will work, sort of: AMD "works", but with issues, so unsupported.

The multi-player mode of Civ VI will work between Linux and macOS but there is currently no support for cross-Windows play.

If there's a working benchmark mode, I'll certainly deliver a number of tests this week to see how it does on different drivers/GPUs.
