The company that owns the rights to the Tomb Raider video game, Feral Interactive, has bet on Gnu / Linux and as a result has not only created tools for video games to work on Gnu / Linux but has also created a special version of Lara Croft's video game for Gnu / Linux.
Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary is the name of this new video game in the Tomb Raider Saga. A title that will be released today April 19 for Gnu / Linux. Feral Interactive, before the imminent launch of this new video game, published yesterday the hardware and software requirements that the video game needs to function properly.
Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary has two types of requirements: minimum requirements and recommended requirements. For both Hardware and Software. Yes, even though it is released for Gnu / Linux, Feral Interactive has indicated that It will only support the Ubuntu distribution and its official flavors, running in any other distribution but its correct functioning is not assured.
Regarding the necessary hardware, the new video game needs at least to have an Intel Core i3-4130T processor or an equivalent AMD processor with 8GB of RAM and a 2GB graphics card, if possible the AMD Radeon R9 285 model or the Nvidia GeForce GTX model. 680 or higher model of any of the above brands.
But the requirements that are recommended by Feral Interactive are as follows: an Intel Core i7-3770K processor with 12GB of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti graphics card for graphics. It should be noted that in no case does it speak of an Intel graphics card, so if we have an integrated graphics card, it is very possible that we cannot play Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary.
Personally, I love Tomb Raider video games, I think they are very addictive and they more than satisfy the most gamer users, but this new title seems to me to ask for a lot compared to other titles in the saga. In any case, the best thing will be to try this new video game for Gnu / linux, something that we can do through the Steam platform or through the company's website Feral Interactive.
