  • In light of the announcement from Epic concerning EAC on Linux, I would like to see AGS enable us to play New World on Linux soon.
    Considering Amazon has essentially donated most of what was Lumberyard (see O3DE), there is some reality where they ship a Linux client to some capacity.
  • How capable is Godot's 3D?
    reddit.com/r/godot | 2021-09-22
    Godot 4 is good 3D, but it still has a couple of years of development to become the best AAA engine currently not listed there PhysX Terrain Editor AI Behavior Tree VFX insufficient import problems Animations it's still a long time if you want 3D AAA Engine, it's better to take O3DE FOSS there full-functional and OS cross-platforms dream this is a powerful fork of CryEngine https://o3de.org/

  • Reason for all Performance Issues (Low FPS, Over Heating, Bottle necking)
    Can also find a list of devs and contact info via the O3DE github (https://github.com/o3de/o3de). All the maintainers and contributors with Amzn in their name are Amazon Games developers who work on New World.

  • Game Engines on Steam: The Definitive Breakdown

    I only recently found out about:



    Seems to be opensourced engine based on Amazon's Lumberyard engine, which itself was based on Crytek's engine (!!).

    An alternative OSS 3D engine is Open 3D Engine (O3DE), more here: https://o3de.org/

    This is a new Linux Foundation project. (Full disclosure: I work for the LF, though I don't have any connection to O3DE.)

    If you're looking for a good 3D engine that is open source there's https://o3de.org/ which is now part of the Linux Foundation and based off of Amazon's Lumberyard game engine
  • Would new world on steam deck be a possibility?
    If Amazon Games integrated FidelityFX FSR support, New World should be able to run at a solid 60+ fps no problem on the SteamDeck. AMD FidelityFX FSR is open source (github link). Amazon a few months back made the engine used for New World open source (github link) and donated it to the stewardship of the Linux Foundation. The name of the game engine was changed from Amazon Lumberyard to the new name of Open 3D Engine. According to testimony from various game developers FidelityFX FSR can be incorporated into a game with only a few man hours of labor and from looking at the O3DE source code it should be possible to create a FidelityFX FSR "gem" (engine plugin) that will work with New World.
  • I am thinking of going to Linux with Windows 11 on the way
    You should look at O3DE, it's a re-branded and re-licensed Amazon Lumberyard and, unlike Godot, it's an actual professional-grade engine.
  • Question, I want to develop a simple game but it seems most dev platforms are on Windows. Are there any native Linux developing platforms/engines?
    Godot is a bit of darling in the open-source communities, because it's an active open-source engine project. There are quite a few open-source engines, but most of them are self-assembly toolkits without an ecosystem of tutorials. I'd look at the various Doom and id Tech engine versions. The Open 3D Engine just got fully open-sourced, for someone patient, ambitious, and looking for an engine newer than id Tech 3 and id Tech 4. It was, to be blunt, not cross-platform before it was open-sourced, but progress seems healthy.
  • Question about NWs engine
    At this point, it is basically it's own thing and has not much left of cry engine. There are some small parts of CrySystem and CryCommon still remaining. Most of CrySystem was stripped (remaining pieces are small things like Localization). This is the folder to that code for anyone interested: https://github.com/o3de/o3de/tree/development/Code/Legacy
