Looks like Monster Hunter Rise runs well on Linux with Proton

By - | Views: 16,999

Monster Hunter Rise has just released on Steam today from Capcom and the good news is - it appears to run very nicely out of the box with Steam Play Proton on Linux. That's another tick in the box for a big AAA title.

Tested with Proton Experimental, the only issue currently encountered is a small intro video not playing. This is a reoccurring issue and will be for the Steam Deck, for titles that use things like Media Foundation. If such things bother you, it worked just fine with Proton GE which you can easily download with ProtonUp-Qt. Over time though, Valve will be re-encoding videos for games where it's an issue so eventually more won't see this issue. Luckily here it's really minor.

I haven't been able to see any obvious issues, there isn't even much stutter which you would usually see from a brand new release on Linux. Then again, it's not as a graphically intense as certain other big releases, since this was originally developed for the Nintendo Switch so it's really not all that surprising.

Overall, a pretty smooth release to be able to play at release on Linux with Proton.

Tested on EndeavourOS

You can try it out yourself right now too, as there's a demo on Steam. Also available on Humble Store.

Capcom provided Valve with an early copy which certainly helps.

CDPR did the same with Cyberpunk 2077, but in that case the problem was that it was Cyberpunk 2077.

I tried playing the demo but it crashes after the first logo or so. Is it only the full game that works?
