Just thought I'd show you guys some of the differences between the DX11 and OpenGL builds.
Linux picture followed by Windows.
Both games are maxed out without any special tweaking.
I'll post more if people are interested.

You won't notice much difference graphically in most cases. The two have regularly traded blows with each other for every release.

What about frame rates?

All I can really notice is that Tessellation is missing in Linux (which is expected). Stuff is flatter. I think I've just gotten to used to having it. When it is there I don't really notice it, but things really look lacking when it is gone.

That shadow though...that looks like an error.

Have any more shots of just shadows?

I don't have that information but both run pretty smoothly.
I'll see what I can do.

Nice. Pretty impressive how close things are, despite it basically being Windows port. If/When they make another Metro Game, I'd be willing to bet that it'll be on Linux day 1, which would be a lot more interesting.

Like I said before, I wonder if they're actually using OpenGL 4+ or just using 3.x?
