Overwatch



Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Unveiled at BlizzCon 2014, the game emphasizes cooperative gameplay using a cast of various "heroes", each with their own abilities and roles within a team. The E-sports scene developing around the game over the years has gained tremendous popularity with the finals even being broadcasted on ESPN, DIsney and other mainstream platforms.

What works

Everything tested. Quick play and Comp play, plus multiple scenarios. 300+ hours played on Linux.

What does not

Framerate stutters until shader cache is built, this happens after every game update. After that, it is smooth and I can get 100+ FPS.

Workarounds

What was not tested

In game purchases with real money.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I have found the game to work best with Wine runner "lutris-4.21-x86_64" but it does work with newer versions also. Also, performance is better while using DXVK (version 1.7L3322da4-2) and Esync enabled.

A Lutris script exists for this game also, for ease of installation to your WINE bottle.

Overrides: nvapi=disabled, nvapi64=disabled.
