Valve continues to improve its steam client Play and also other projects related to the gaming world on Linux, such as the Proton update. If you still do not know what Steam and Proton are, say that the first is the Steam video game store client, and the second is a project based on WINE, but with some modifications to improve the compatibility of native Windows video games and integrated on the Steam client. Objective? That the titles for Windows that you buy can also work on your distro without the need for strange configurations or installations on your own ...
Well, Steam Play has been updated with some improvements, including the integration of a new version of Proton. Now comes the version Proton 6.3-3, based on WINE 6.
Between the best present in this new version of Proton for Steam include:
- VKD3D-Proton update to v2.3.1
- Origin Overlay is now functional and allows you to play It Takes Two with friends.
- Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is now playable without the previous problems.
- Fixed the 'Not Purchased' bug that occurred earlier in Red Dead Redemption 2.
- Fixed Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition crash that occurred at startup.
- Fixed launchers for Evil Genius 2, Zombie Army 4, Strange Brigade, Sniper Elite 4, Beam.NG, and Eve Online.
- Solution to the detection of the Xbox controller in Far Cry Primal.
- And much more…
Many of those solutions were already available in the version Experimental Proton, but not in the final version. Of course, in the new trial version there will also be new changes.
If you would like to try Proton on Steam now, you already know that you can install the Steam client from the official website, although you will also find it in the repos of most popular distros, so that you can install it more easily ...
