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.


What was not tested

In game purchases with real money.

Hardware tested


  • 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.
