Metro 2033 Redux uses a new version of the 4A Engine, with overhauled graphics and new physics effects.
Played one level with an unmodified Wine prefix, then completed the rest of the game with DXVK.
What does not
When using Sway (a tiling WM which uses Wayland), the game crashes when switching workspaces. Fixed by enabling virtual desktop. Users of typical DEs shouldn't have this issue.
Enabled virtual desktop.
Installed DXVK using winetricks dxvk (current version is v1.7.2). This drastically improved the framerate on my (weak) hardware, with no noticeable changes in graphics.
What was not tested
Beating the game without DXVK.
Metro 2033 Redux version 188.8.131.52
