Steam for Linux may not have officially launched yet, but we have a pretty good idea of the games that will be available. Valve is running a major Steam Autumn Sale and a log of the games to be available on Linux benefit from generous discounts.
One of the Steam perks is the fact that a game bought on any platform, for example Windows, will also be available for the other one, Mac OS and soon Linux.
There are a little over 50 games that will eventually arrive on Steam for Linux. Here is a short list with the most fun and best games that can be bought at a discount.
Serious Sam 3: BFE is a first-person shooter featuring none other than Sam, the hero from the previous games in the franchise. This is actually a prequel and as it stands, it's the only AAA title announced so far, besides Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead 2.
Right now it can be purchased on Steam with a 75% discount and the offer will expire tomorrow, November 27.
Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 puts the players in the role of a soldier during World War II, in some of the most inhospitable environments of the Eastern Front. It started its life as an Unreal mod, but has grown into a fully-fledged game.
It can be purchased on Steam with a 50% discount and the offer will expire tomorrow, November 27.
In Psychonauts, the player follows the adventures of a young psychic named Razputin. He wants to join the Psychonauts and he gets involved on a mischievous plot that will make him use all his arsenal of psychic powers, such as Telekinesis and Levitation.
It's not a new game, but it features an amazing story and great gameplay. You can check out our review of Psychonauts for more information.
The game can be bought with a 50% discount until tomorrow, November 27.
Our information is taken from the CDR database and by no means is it completely certain. CDR Database is a record of data that describes every Steam game and subscription provided by Valve for the Steam service.
Usually, the new entries in the Steam database are firstly visible in the CDR Database before their official launch.
