Additional Comments

As mentioned in the comments, avoid using the PlayOnLinux version of Wine as it fails to launch the game. I'd recommend using vanilla Wine (x86_64) only.

As of Wine 3.5, the Vulkan LunarG SDK is not required to run the game.

HowTo / Notes

Issues with radv

As of February 2018, radv has issues with the game and needs patches. See for more info.

Wine with Vulkan support is required

Wine gained Vulkan support with 3.4 release. Older wine-staging had Vulkan support, but it was not sufficient (missing extensions).

As of Wine 3.4, enabling Vulkan support requires some manual setup that is described in steps 2 to 4 on the original wine-vulkan README page.

Audio stutter

If you are experiencing audio choppiness/stutter, try installing 64bit version of XAudio2_7 via winetricks:

WINEARCH=win64 winetricks xact
