Proton 6.3-1 released with more Windows games now running on Linux/Steam Play


To kick off a new month of Linux games, Valve today released Proton 6.3-1 as the latest version of their Wine downstream that powers Steam Play to run Windows games on Linux.

Proton 6.3-1 is significant in that it rebased itself on Wine 6.3 from the previous Wine/Proton 5.13 series. In addition to rebasing on the new upstream Wine, there are also many changes.

First of all, a number of additional games – including many high profile titles – now run well on this new Proton:

– Divinity: Original Sin 2
-Shenmue I & II
– Mass Effect 3 N7 Digital Deluxe Edition (2012)
– Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six lock
– XCOM: Chimera Squad
– Bioshock 2 remastered
– Company of heroes 2
– logically
– Rise of the Triad
– Home Behind 2
– Shadow Empire
– Arena Wars 2
– King Arthur: A Knight’s Tale
– Rise of Venice
– ARK Park
– Gravity Sketch
– Battle Arena VR

Some of the technical things to note with Proton 6.3-1 include the extraction of DXVK 1.8.1 and VKD3D-Proton 2.2 to map Direct3D 9/10/11 and Direct3D 12, respectively, on top of the Vulkan API. There is also a new FAudio and Wine-Mono. This Proton update also improves Uplay connection handling, fixes Microsoft Flight Simulator in VR mode and other fixes.

This Proton update also promotes some things that were previously only in Proton Experimental, like better PlayStation 5 controller support, improved VR boot time and compatibility, support for thread prioritization via RTKit and improved video support.

The full list of changes for Proton 6.3-1 can be found via GitHub.
