Valve add additional titles to the Steam Play Whitelist

By - | Views: 25,852

After recently pushing out a pretty big update to Steam Play with Proton 4.11, Valve have now added some additional titles to their Whitelist.

What is the Whitelist? Currently, this is the list Valve have accepted to be shown as a Windows game you can install in the Linux Steam client, without enabling Steam Play on your entire library. They are also set to a specific version of Proton by Valve, to hopefully give the best experience.

The new titles added yesterday were:

They did also add some special configuration options for GRID, METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE, QUAKE Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon and QUAKE Mission Pack 2: Dissolution of Eternity. Even though GRID and the Metal Gear game are not whitelisted yet.

Valve don't seem to have a public list anywhere I could see, but thankfully SteamDB are tracking it here, which shows the above and all others previously added. There's now about 168 titles in the whitelist.

This is likely the list Valve will use to eventually show Steam Play on the store pages for games, how they do that though we have no idea as they haven't talked about it lately. In the original Steam Play announcement, Valve simply said "whitelisted games will not be offered for purchase or marked as supported on Linux on the Store during the initial Beta period".

Quoting: fagnerlnI didn't notice that Dark Souls III is on whitelist, it's a really good game, I recommend.

As far as I remember DSIII was already white-listed for Proton 3.16

Edit: yes, see https://steamdb.info/app/891390/info/
(Reading that list makes me realize that the titles in OP are white-listed for Proton 4.2, not for the shiny new 4.11. Interesting and probably a wise approach.)

What exactly does that mean, special configuration options for the two Quake mission packs? Are they whitelisted now? I notice that Return to Castle Wolfenstein seems to be among that list as well.
