Radeon Mesa Game Compatibility List


Mesa, the open-source implementation of OpenGL and Vulkan, comes pre-installed with Linux distributions such as Ubuntu MATE. Its use enables playing of games without AMD’s proprietary driver (formerly called Crimson, now Adrenalin). To make transitioning to Linux gaming easier for Radeon GPU users, we’ve made a list of games that we have verified to work on Radeon GPU running on Mesa. Take note that the list is not complete because there are more than 3,900 Linux games on Steam and we can only test games that we own. The list will be updated as we test more games.

As the list gets longer, scrolling down to find a game would be tedious. To make game searching easier, press Ctrl + F on the keyboard then type the title of the game you are looking for.
