Crytek's unveiling full CryEngine support for Linux at next week's Game Developers' Conference in San Francisco, paving the way for a host of major games to come to the Steam Machine operating service. It's a move that's been in the works for a while, after Crytek called for new recruits to help it bring CryEngine 3 to Linux back in July 2013.

Crytek of course uses CryEngine to power the games it develops, including Crysis 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Warface, but it also licenses it out to other studios. Sonic Boom and State of Decay run on CryEngine 3, while the latest iteration features in Evolve, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and Star Citizen.
