Is the Doom III Linux runtime going to be made available for Steam users? I tend to buy multiplatform games these days, and I'll get this one if anyone can confirm that it will be.

was just about to purchase this myself, but no GNU/Linux support stopped me :(
I'd also like to get this now while on sale -- IF it can be confirmed it will later run on GNU/Linux.

That's weird, since Doom 3 proper was one of the first big titles to run on Linux and it's even open source (minus the assets). But BFG seems to be a different version that was ported from consoles.

I doubt you will ever see the linux client on steam, but there is this:

I would also buy it if there was a Linux version for Steam

+1 for linux version on steam

you can use the game data for the rbdoom3 project that someone posted earlier. So if you pick it up now you can play on linux with a little bit of work. I have every id game running natively in linux except for rage. I dont own that one wolfenstein game that was removed from steam so I cant comment on that but every other one has worked with the original game data provided on steam.

If I bought the game why should I do something else to play it? Isn't it a purpose of steam to just push the play button and enjoy the game? It used to be fun someday, but not anymore.

Are you new to Linux?
When will Doom 3 BFG Edition be available on Steam for Liunx, because heaven for the Doom 3 classic there is an official port but not on Steam !! Please Doom 3 BFG Edition for Linux on Steam !
I talked Bethesda of the problem that Doom 1,2,3 and quake that have official Linux versions since a long time ago aren't available on steam for Linux. An employee answered me and said he has talked about it to his manager, but I'd better contact Steam also. Ps : Quake 4 also Mac support but not on Steam.
If we want a Linux support for those games that already has one (but not on Steam) everybody should write to Bethesda and Steam support. Here is the Bethesda mail : "ESO English Support" <>

I already bought this back when I was still using Windows, but yeah I'd like a Linux version.

Btw this is the Bethesda Softworks contact info...

Making the proper e-mail address:
