Xenko, a promising game engine that was one of the early adopters of Vulkan and does support Linux, is now open-source and freely available.

Xenko 3.0 is now available as this game engine's first open-source release both for the runtime and editor.

Xenko 3.0 was focused on the open-sourcing process but also has a new project system and other changes.

The Xenko game engine supports 2D and 3D games as well as VR. The open-sourcing of the project is happening since Silicon Studio that had been backing the engine has dropped support for the project. Previously the runtime was GNU GPLv3.
