Finally, Borderland 2 is now officially available for the Linux platform. The pre-sequel will be available next month when the game will be launched. Courtesy of Aspyr Media following an interview conducted by gameingonlinux team, the new port may have a few rough edges (what new port doesn’t?), but it’s a really great game to have on our platform. The game is also on sale, so there’s never been a better time to pickup a copy, or if you already owned it be sure to grab some DLC to show your support.
Following further conversation with regards to the porting, This port was challenging, for sure. Performance was at the core of our efforts and while ATI and Intel didn’t make the cut for release, we continue to work on performance for those chipsets and hope to come to a level of performance we can stand behind as gamers in the near future by Michael Blair, Aspyr Media
As noted here, Borderland 2 currently only supports Nvidia graphics cards as it seems the Intel and AMD graphics chips don’t give enough performance, but this isn’t an issue on Mac system.
Borderland 2 is currently going on a 75% offer @ SteamOS, so grab your copy now as this offer end on Oct 2nd @ 10am PDT
