What works

All I have tested for the moment  (2 hours of gameplay)

What does not

Nothing, it works like a charm.


What was not tested

Multiplayer. I did not test because I am not interested.

For me an AC will be always a single player game.

Additional Comments

I have used the 2.7-Staging version of Wine, that includes the patch provided here: I have made a video here: The game launch the Ubisoft launcher that works fine (if using staging wine version) in my case. I changed to fullscreen and the resolution to 1920*1080 without problems. The graphics look great (see video) and there are not many glitches. The performance is quite poor in my case (10-20 FPS) but it seems related with some kind of CPU boottleneck. The GPU use is always below 50% and if I downgrade the graphic options I get exactly the same speed. I have the feeling that with a good CPU (i5 or more) the performance should be close to Windows. I keep it as "silver" since for the moment this game only works with the patch existing in the staging version. Also the UPlay laucher only works in the staging version (this affects all Ubisoft games!). If it worked in the main Wine version it would be a clear 'Platinum' for me.
