Alien: Isolation is on its way to haunt Linux gamers, with Creative Assembly's first-person horror game being ported to Linux by Feral Interactive.


Feral Interactive has worked on previous Linux ports of games such as XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Company of Heroes, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The developer has just released the minimum and recommended requirements for Alien: Isolation on Linux. NVIDIA GeForce owners will have no issues, but Feral Interactive says that AMD Radeon and Intel GPUs are both not supported. This doesn't mean the game won't work on AMD and Intel GPUs, but it will most likely be problematic, and won't include any support from Feral.
