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.
App can be installed. This is where the stability ends
What does not
Sometimes the app crashes:
What was not tested
Pretty much every function could not be tested since the game kept crashing and was too unstable for testing anything
I'm not 100% sure about the Wine version though.
I want to test if Wayland is any better. I doubt that it will be.
I used the Bottles app with it's preset to install the Blizzard Launcher. The app was installed without any problem. Launching though bottles was not possible.
The Blizzard Launcher installed the game in the regular Wine Windows directory (/home/USER/.wine/drive_c/). Since Bottles did not start the game, I started the game with right click -> Open with Wine-Windows Program Starter.
I have installed
So I have 0 idea which version of Wine is really used to run the game. But it seriously doesn't matter because the game is Captain Crash'a'lot.
