Install the Game from the Windows Version of Steam
Install or add Assassin's Creed III game on UPlay.
Activate the Game using the Steam Product Key on UPlay.
Running the game until gets the splash screen: "This work was made with a team of..."
From now on vanilla Wine is what it gets. Game will crash without patched Wine versions.
What does not
Using the default vanilla or staging Wine versions the game will crash on the initial splash screen.
It requires esync patched Wine, and compatible video drivers capable to support Vulkan, since without DXVK there's no real hope to run this DirectX 11 game, or even any real DirectX 11 game.
It's is highly recommendable to use Lutris and the install script delivered below, to ease the installation. Running the game from the Desktop shortcut will minimize the chance to crash the game at start-up.
Once started, the game works without any real issues.
It even runs with UPlay and Steam on online mode, and the special DLC codes delivered form Steam can be activated !
What was not tested
Using Lutris and esync versions, along the last DXVK 0.93 version, the game would be Platinum.
