Feral Interactive has let the cat out of the bag: Tomb Raider is shipping for Linux today!

This AAA game is being released for Linux today and you'll be able to find it on Steam and through the Feral Store.

Tomb Raider on Linux will work with modern NVIDIA GPUs on the binary driver and with higher-end AMD GCN GPUs using Mesa 11.2+.

I've already confirmed with Feral that the benchmark mode found in Tomb Raider on Windows is available under Linux, at least through the in-game menu. No word yet if there is any CLI argument switches for being able to properly automate the benchmarking... Regardless, will try to put out some AMD and NVIDIA Linux benchmarks today of Tomb Raider on Linux.

You can learn more about the game for now via the Feral mini site. Stay tuned for more information in a few hours.
