Gaming fans, listen up! As we discussed earlier that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is about to arrive on Linux-based systems, well you don’t have to wait any longer as that day has finally come.
Yesterday marked the release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Although the original version was liked by both players and critics alike, what makes the Definitive Edition so special is the availability on Linux, so you don’t have to head over to your Windows-based systems or any gaming consoles to play this game.
With that being said, this version also has another plus-point, and it’s the downloadable content that comes with it. All in all, this version of the game offers seven DLCs: The Forge, The Pillar, The Nightmare, The Price of Survival, The Serpent’s Heart, The Grand Caiman, and The Path Home. This is to give its previous players some new missions, settings, weapons, and much more.
If you’re interested in buying the game? Just head over to the Feral Store or Steam to purchase it. It costs $59.99 as of now, but Black Friday is just around the corner, so look out for any future sales. However, we recommend you have a look at its specifications for Linux first.
When it comes to the operating system, you need to have Ubuntu 18.04 (64-bit) or a later version. For the processor and memory, Intel Core i3-4130 @3.4 GHz and 8GB RAM would be enough to run the game, but Intel Core i7-4770 @3.4 GHz and 16GB RAM will support high settings. Moreover, the Nvidia GTX 680 (2GB) or AMD GCN 3rd (2GB) graphics card is minimum, while AMD RX 480 is recommended. As you would have noted, the game doesn’t support Intel GPUs. Lastly, you would require 40GB of storage space.
If you’re a fan of the Tomb Raider series or adventure games in general, then Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a must-have as it puts an end to the Tomb Raider origins trilogy once and for all. Not to mention, you can play the game from the comfort of your PC without even having to boot to another OS. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the official news source to have a better look at the game.
