We all know the bonuses of the graphical API Volcano that arises from the code given by AMD and that derives from its Matle project with which it wanted to differentiate itself in the world of graphics. Little by little more and more video games are beginning to support and rely on Vulkan to achieve incredible graphic results in the world of gaming for GNU / Linux and this is the case of the title that we present today: Mavericks.
Mavericks will be based on Vulkan and will be available for Linux as we have learned. A very interesting shooter with an open world like no other and a Battle Royale mode that we can enjoy in our favorite distros. All thanks to the work of Automation Games, who are responsible and those who have officially confirmed the creation of this title: «SThere will be a Linux version of Mavericks (in fact, we already use Linux for all jobs and servers related to the game, including the physics and logic of the game.«. Unfortunately in the statement they have clarified that there will be support for Linux but it will arrive a little later than the official launch for other platforms, as in many cases. But to make up for this bad news, it must be said that they have also admitted that most of the build work for Linux is done, and that it will not be a port of the video game for Linux, but a work from scratch that allows better results.
They have also confirmed rendering using Vulkan, but have not wanted set a departure date, although they anticipate that they will make the announcement as soon as they can. We will be attentive to comment on the news that come out, but I invite you to obtain more information about Mavericks (from its Official website), since the criticisms that are already being heard before his departure are quite good.
