4A Games has made good on its pledge to port its post-apocalyptic first person shooter Metro: Last Light onto the Linux platform, following successful launches on PC, Mac, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The new Linux version supports Valve Software's Steam Play initiative, which means that anyon who purchases it on either PC, Mac or Linux will have access to the game on whichever of the three operating systems they choose to use.
Metro: Last Light arrives on Linux ahead of the arrival of Valve's custom-built Steam Machine PCs, which will be running the new Linux-based SteamOS, and publisher Deep Silver has confirmed that all beta testers of the Steam Machine hardware will be receiving a free copy of the game:
“We are excited by the prospect of bringing the ultimate Metro experience, powered by next-gen PC hardware into the living room,” said Oles Shishkovstov, Chief Technical Officer at 4A Games. “Metro: Last Light will be a great showcase for Steam OS and the Steam Controller.”
