Steam Play 2.0 – Proton Game Compatibility List

A list of PC games without Linux version that we have confirmed to be playable on Linux through Steam Play’s Proton.

Proton, the new feature of the Steam Play, enables Windows games without Linux version to be played within the Linux Steam client. This is a big step forward in making Linux a great platform for gaming. However, not all Windows games are confirmed yet by Valve to work with Proton. Some may not even work at all due to intrusive DRM and anti-cheat software. To increase the awareness of the PC gaming community about the viability of Linux as a gaming platform, we made a list of Windows games that we have confirmed to be playable on Linux through Steam Play 2.0.
