What works

Almost everything that is needed for play:

  • menu
  • settings
  • some cut-scenes
  • sound with surround effect
  • mouse controller (with issues, OK in the menu)
  • Steam controller (heavy workarounds needed)
  • game on all graphics settings (with workaround)

What does not

Out of the box, game renders incorrectly. Workaround in needed (DXVK) to make it playable.

Frame-rate is much lower than on Windows (30 compared to 60 FPS on ultra settings).

The game crashes on cut-scenes, those shot with real actors. Unfortunately, these are very important for the story. This is caused by a failure in the Media Foundation, it is not well implemented in the current Wine. If you have Windows 7 (or older), you can try workaround from this comment: 

Alt-tab to desktop is not working.


Use DXVK to make it work (check HowTo below).

Steam controller can be enabled using SC ControllerXbox 360 Controller Emulator but it is quite hard to setup.
