Add another game to the growing list of titles coming to SteamOS. World of Mass Development has confirmed that crowd-funded racing sim Project CARS will be released for Valve's Linux-based living room OS. Backers can already access early builds on Steam for Windows. The final version, which is due in fall 2014, will be released for both Windows and SteamOS. The game is also coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U.
As a long-time fan of driving games, I'm really looking forward to this one. I backed the project last year and can't wait to try the final release. The latest trailer makes me think it may be time to dip into the pre-release builds, as well.
Yeah, that looks pretty slick. If you want to see a higher quality version of the trailer, you can grab the original 1440p clip. It's well worth the nearly 1GB download.
When Valve announced its new living-room initiative, it promised that AAA titles were coming to SteamOS next year. Metro: Last Light made the jump a little early, and with Project CARS now in the mix, I'm starting to grow more optimistic about SteamOS's library of native Linux games.
