Dying Light Is Headed To Linux, SteamOS

Dying Light is a survival horror game developed by Techland. Up to now its release later this month has been billed as a Windows / PlayStation 4 / Xbox One title, but it looks now like it will premiere on Steam for Linux / SteamOS... Well, now it's confirmed!

Dying Light is a zombie apocalypse game that's powered by Chrome Engine 6, the proprietary engine of Techland. Chrome Engine 6 does have Linux support and is also the engine of the Dead Island game for Linux.

Techland has yet to make any big Linux announcement for their first game of 2015, but as mentioned in our forums this morning, the SteamDB records update for the game this week now indicate Linux as part of the supported operating system list.

There's a lot of gamers looking forward to this horror zombie game so hopefully it all pans out and premieres on Linux quite soon. When I have any further information on Dying Light for Linux I'll be sure to pass it along as it looks like a nice graphically intense title for beating up hardware.

Update: Dying Light for Linux/SteamOS is now officially confirmed! Confirmation from the developers came shortly after our posting earlier today.
