Re: Does BF4 have linux support?

Hello,

 

 

"AMD and DICE, the developer of Battlefield 4, are committed to bringing the new Mantle API to the Linux platform, which would effectively give a tremendous boost to gaming on the open source platform.

A slideshow presentation has been spotted on a German website, planet3dnow.de, which shows that the two companies have a vested interest in getting Mantle ready for Linux and SteamOS.

The Mantle API would provide a much better interaction between game developers and the GPUS, enabling games to better communicate with the hardware and to ditch any software requirements (like DirectX).

The Mantle is a long way from arriving on Linux, but when it does get here, SteamOS will probably be out in force and Linux will become a powerhouse for development and innovation in the entertainment industry.
