The Witcher 3

Steam has announced that the Witcher 3 will be available for pre-order on SteamOS (a.k.a. Linux). The big question Linux gamers want to know is: Will this be another poorly wrapped Windows port or a native implementation of CD Projekt RED’s REDengine 3? We might have to wait until much later to find out, and you’ll have to wait until February 2015 to get the game, even if you pre-order it now.

At any rate, the game looks like it will be awesome, “built exclusively for next-generation hardware: PlayStation4, Xbox One and PC”.

    I’m betting and hoping that it will be native, because it is aware that SteamOS exists and presumably will plan and develop accordingly. Witcher2 did not have that advantage.

    With recent updates to Witcher2, I have been playing it at a high setting at 720p without a problem. I’m definitely a happy customer, but obviously I’ll be even happier if 3 is native!
