Supporting newer and more advanced Windows games like Control and Death Stranding, the Direct3D 12 to Vulkan layer vkd3d-proton has a 2.0 release. This is the Valve-sponsored fork of the original vkd3d project from the Wine team, with this having a pure focus on working with the Proton compatibility layer for Steam Play.
Today a new release of vkd3d-proton went up tagged by DXVK creator Philip Rebohle, who mentioned that it should now work with these titles along with having D3D12 Feature Level 12.0 and Shader Model 6.0 (DXIL) support:
- Death Stranding
- Devil May Cry 5
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- Metro Exodus
- Monster Hunter World
- Resident Evil 2 / 3
Find the release announcement here.
You're going to need the most up to date drivers possible to use it fully. For AMD that means Mesa's RADV driver, which according to the readme the current recommendation is for drivers right from the current Git development. For NVIDIA you want at least driver version 455.26.01.
Always helping and patching to support latest games, Death Stranding was working flawlessly shortly after release back in July!
And may Józef Kucia rest in peace, we won't forget the hardwork!

Quoting: scaineIs this something we the average user should attempt to get running? Or is it more of a behind-the-scenes report on what's probably going to be baked into the next version of Proton (or ProtonGE)?
Yes, you can just extract the .dll files inside your proton folder
and you'll already be using the newer vkd3d-proton.

You're free to experiment with it (we did publish binaries) - if you want to use it with Proton, just copy the 64-bit DLL to .steam/steam/steamapps/common/Proton 5.13/dist/lib64/wine/vkd3d-proton - but projects like Lutris may choose to adapt this.
We mostly wanted to get a solid release out of the door since development is still somewhat hectic, and the master branch should not be considered the pinnacle of stability.
