Additional Comments

Final verdict: Runs even better than on Windows 10.

I originally installed it on the Windows partition but I had issues running it, especially because it crashed whenever I alt-tabbed. In WINE it works completely fine - so I'm gonna keep playing it this way from now on.

The brightness setting is the only problematic one. The brightness doesn't reset after exiting the game - so better leave it untouched, or reset it manually (or through a script) when exiting the game.
On Windows 10 this setting does not work at all so there's that...

== My system ==
PC   | Custom-built desktop
CPU  | Intel i7 6700K (4.0 GHz, 4 cores)
RAM  | 16Gb DDR4 3000MHz
GPU  | ASUS STRIX GTX 1080 O8G
OS   | Arch Linux 64bit (Linux kernel 4.10.13)
DE   | GNOME Shell 3.24.1
Wine | 2.6

Didn't do any benchmark or FPS measuring, however I didn't experience any slow-downs, but I wouldn't expect any from my GPU.
