Proton 7.0-5 Coming Soon, Improving Steam Deck/Linux Gaming

Valve is preparing to launch the latest update to Steam Play Proton, the compatibility layer to run Windows games on Linux and Steam Deck.

Proton 7.0-5 is now in the Release Candidate testing phase, so it’s not quite ready yet, but you can test it yourself. Right now they are looking for tests and reports on everything that is broken that wasn’t before. For instructions, visit the GitHub topic.

The preliminary changelog (as it may change for the final release):

  • Now playable:

    • rupture
    • Unravel 2
    • Kingdom in the sky
    • ToCollect:Island
    • Nancy Drew: Legend of the Crystal Skull
    • Revolt
    • Warhammer: Vermintide 2
    • Aspire: Ina’s Tale
    • Battle Realms: Zen Edition
    • Deathsmiles II

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 probably shouldn’t be listed as playable as it still has some pretty major issues.

So, Valve, are you ever going to mark Paladins as unsupported again? It’s been broken for months because of the anti-cheat. It really doesn’t inspire confidence in Deck Verified if a known broken game is still listed as playable…
