This is the latest version available via the Epic Games Launcher, which is the exclusive distributor of MW5 Mercs on PC for 1 year from its release in late 2019.
Installing the game through the Epic Games Launcher naturally works, once you got that one working.
What does not
Does not start without any hacks, only gives a black screen. Even with various hacks it won't start for me.
You don't have too many options to play around with it either, e.g. by using proton, because the game insists to be launched by the Epic Games Launcher.
What was not tested
Everything besides launching the game, since it does not run.
