This time I have decided to install one of my favorite games to be able to enjoy it for a while, that's why from what I share with the newbies a simple guide on how to properly install Assassin's Creed on Linux.

I have enjoyed many hours of playing with this title and for years I have followed the game franchise, they will not let me lie, but the first installment was one of the best that left more than one wanting more.

We will go on to make the configurations necessary to install our game on Linux.


  • Have PlayOnLinux or Wine installed, failing that.
  • Have your graphics card drivers installed.
  • If you have your title on Steam, you will only have to perform the client installation and download the game as an extra step.
  • Patience.

For those who decided to use PlayOnLinux we must open it and We go to the menu> tools> versions of Wine.

Configuring PlayOnLinux

Here a window will open, whether or not you use a 64-bit processor it does not matter, we will use a 32-bit version of Wine. Here they download the most current in this case the stable one is 3.0.


Now We wait for it to be downloaded along with its necessary packages.

Done the download we return to the PlayOnLinux menu and now we are going to click where it says "Install a program"

A sale will be opened and in the lower left part we click where it says "Install an unlisted program"
