Valve updates Proton

Linux gamers who rely on Wine or native game clients will have a new option to play games thanks to the latest update. Valve’s fork of Wine, received a major update allowing users to choose to use Proton in place of games’ clients, in some cases providing new functionality such as controller support, better frame rates, or even better multiplayer support. Even better? It works with non steam titles.

Linux users still don’t have the same level of support as Mac or Windows users do, but with tools like Proton and Wine, its finely plausible to actually play games with relative ease.

Additionally, Wine hit 4.0 this week as well.
