If you’re a Mac or Linux owner, you know getting the latest and greatest games probably doesn’t rank high in your list of priorities, but you’d still like to be able to get a game or two on your preferred operating system. Deep Silver knows this, which is why the publisher has just announced along with 4A Games they will be bringing its recently released first-person shooter, Metro: Last Light, to the Mac and Linux this year.
The Mac version of Metro: Last Light will be seeing the light of day on September 10, while the Linux version is said to be released later this year. 4A Games chief technology officer Oles Shishkovstov said in a statement bringing the game to both Mac and Linux shows “the power and flexibility” of the studio’s 4A Engine. Both versions of Metro: Last Light will be completely developed by 4A Games, with no additional developer expected to help in porting these games to the Mac and Linux.
As of this writing, Metro: Last Light is sitting at an average rating score of 80, which by our standards, means it’s a very good game. I played through Metro: Last Light and I can tell you Mac and Linux users will be in for a treat once the game is available on their platforms.
