Metro: Last Light Hits Mac & Linux, Steamplay Supported

By   /   2 years ago

The fact that Mac and Linux get a very small share of the mainstream games doesn’t necessarily mean that the folks using them aren’t fond of games. Even though the number is small, we still see some games ported to these operating systems, which is good news. Here’s another one; Metro: Last Light will come to Mac and Linux.

We have learnt courtesy of Gameinformer that the developers 4A Games are making a version of the game for both the aforementioned operating systems. The Mac version will hit the markets, Steam and App Store included, on September 10 while the Linux version might take a little longer and get launched towards the end of this year.

Now if you happen to own the PC version of the game and you are a steam user, you will get access to these versions of Last Light automatically on other platforms too – thanks to Steamplay.

This comes with another jolly news that the Mac and Linux versions will also get all the downloadable content and the season pass when it arrives to the PC versions of the game.

A press release from Deep Silver, the publishers discusses the matter in great detail stating that the development of the game was in house i.e. 4A games itself is behind the endeavor and motioned towards the gamers that “We hope that Mac and Linux gamers will appreciate our efforts to create the best possible version for their machines.”

It has been quite a long time since these non-standard platforms have been ignored; we are hoping that they get some more attention from the developers. Let’s not forget the wonders Steamplay can do.
