Another day, another ‘Feral Interactive brings cool game to Linux’ story – this time, it’s a Hitman Linux version.
The 2016 Hitman reboot has been rather popular. People were skeptical of the episodic platform but, as it turned out, the bitesize chunks and staggered introduction of locales were– do you know, I think I’ve written that same piece of exposition about the Hitman reboot about eight times now. That’s the trouble with episodic games: there’s always something new to say, and you have to try and find new ways to say it, over and over, every few weeks or so.
(I’d say it was “lather, rinse, repeat,” but that’s not the best analogy in Agent 47’s case.)
Anyway, onto the news: Feral Interactive, the specialist Mac and open-source gaming publisher, have today announced there’s a Hitman Linux version on the way. Really, really soon, in fact. Oh, and there’s an announcement trailer, for good measure.
The series has been around for over 16 years, but it turns out that next week’s release is actually the first Hitman Linux version there’s ever been.
“It’s been a long wait to get a Hitman title onto Linux, but I can’t think of a better way than this to introduce the series to Linux gamers.” – David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive
And the best bit is that you won’t have to wait to experience the episodes – the Hitman Linux edition includes all previous content, just like the retail version. Pick it up from Steam or the Feral Interactive store when it launches on February 16, 2017.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
