What works

The game itself runs just like in Windows

What does not

Origin In-Game (not part of the game)

Workarounds

Requires to install Visual C++ .dll/s using latest version of winetricks

winetricks vcrun2010 vcrun2013 vcrun2017

and Origin (no need for workarounds to install it).

It's also neccesary to disable Origin In-Game in settings, otherwise the game will crash.

If the "Play" button is greyed-out for you after Origin completed downloading and installation, terminate its process, launch again and run repair on the game in the menu, you should be able to launch it now.

What was not tested

Origin In-Game functions

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
