The launch has basically been an epic disaster, but out of interest: for those who have it, does it work on Linux?

Have they fixed some of the most egregious bugs?

It works, but some things like spatial audio still need upstreaming to regular Wine to play it well. And you need AMD GPU (it kind of works with Nvidia, but it's unstable).

I'm not playing it yet though. Still waiting to get that Sapphire Pulse RX 6800 XT for better performance but with massive GPU shortages they are impossible to find anywhere.

Though by the time cards will be available, they'll also patch the game more and Wine will get spatial audio support, so no need to rush it.

Thanks. Sounds like a good idea to postpone getting it. Wouldn't play on my current rig anyway, and can't afford to upgrade right now. Let's hope the game will be in a more stable position in 6-12 months. Took a while with Witcher 3 too.

I started it last week, and so far has been a blast. Sure, it has issues but in general is a great game. It could have been better though. My rig is a Ryzen 2500 and RX5700 and can play with high settings at 2K getting +40FPS all the time.

It just got updated in fedora today, and the difference it's abysmal! Much more enjoyable now.

Now, saying I got +40FPS... apparently only until I got the heist, the frames crawled like a snail there lol

Trying to run the game with latest Wine staging, it's getting stuck.

It launches OK with regular Wine, so it's a staging problem.

Working sounds is nice!

Earlier in the week I realised that the radios in the vehicles wouldn't sound for me, even with the new fixes introduced in latest Proton. If someone has the same issue, I fixed it installing pipewire instead of pulse audio. This is what I did in fedora, in other distros it's similar, and as usual in the Arch wiki there is nice info about it https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PipeWire:

sudo dnf install --allowerasing piepewire pipewire-pulseaudio pipeline-gstreamer pipewire-alsa
sudo systemctl --user restart pipewire-pulse.service

Now driving is much more enjoyable, and the OST with lots hard rock and electronic is banging!

Edit: I also installed Alsa for legacy apps and gstreamer for video.
