Artifact is an exciting and addicting card game from Valve, out now
28 November 2018 at 10:49 pm UTC

why only on linux system requirements says "vulkan cards"?

The open source racer 'SuperTuxKart' is looking for testers to try their new online play

until crash team racing gets a pc version, this is the kart game that I will be playing

Valve have updated Steam Play with the 3.16-1 beta based on Wine 3.16 and new DXVK
13 October 2018 at 7:49 pm UTC

you are not mentioning the most interesting aspect. D3D11's Stream Output, now games like Giana sisters and etc will work.

Btw, sad to see they dropped mac support with this release

The Wine team have released VKD3D version 1.1 of their Direct3D 12 to Vulkan translation library

NeptNutzObviously, the list is monumentally short compared to DX11 games, but (aside from P-L.G's tweet) is there anyone showing this working on a DX12 release title? I know I have at least two (maybe three) titles I can try this—Oops! Nevermind. In pure (non-Proton) Wine, make that five! ;)

This article is issued from Wikipedia - version of the 12/4/2016.

why did they delete the dx and vulkan games from wiki?

It's the Wikipedia, feel free to add it again

Valve have now pushed out all the recent beta changes in Steam Play's Proton to everyone

I played The Witness, it works great on Linux, and behaves in the same way than on W10. Only issue is that there is a bit of performance penalty which I would like if it were fixed in future releases.

Also other small games, like gta2 works excellent and etc.

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is now officially available on Linux, more coming from Icculus

I tough he wasn't porting games anymore, since he was focused on SDL2 and stuff.

A multi-vendor extension for transform feedback in Vulkan is being worked on to help DXVK and others
8 September 2018 at 9:46 pm UTC

So after this basically all games (except games with weird drm) will work.

Valve officially confirm a new version of 'Steam Play' which includes a modified version of Wine

WendigoValve did a really clever move here to force game developers into cross platform development. Publishers will now have to make sure that their games run on all platforms Steam supports, no matter if they intend it to run there or not since the games were made available everywhere. Even though players get a notice when starting a game via proton I guess quite a few will still down vote a game that doesn't run on Linux or OSX, so the Publishers have 3 choices:

1) Do nothing and get a bad rating that affects their future sales of the game.
2) Make sure their game runs with Proton on all operating systems that Steam supports and hope that a future change in Proton doesn't break the game.
3) Do a proper cross platform port or develop future games with cross platform in mind and have control over the game's performance on Linux and OSX.

I guess the third option is the best choice.

that sounds like a dick move from valve

NatedawgI think this is great news!

I can see this discouraging some developers from making a Linux port, but these developers will likely be the same ones who are on the fence about making a Linux port anyway. The ones who have been natively supporting us will likely continue to do so.

Knowing the Linux community, I 'm pretty sure we will still make it a top priority to support publishers like Feral / Aspyr / etc.

but now there is no reason to not buy a game because it doesnt have a linux version, feral business model is in danger.
We will see how things goes.
