Proton Project Launches Cyberpunk 2077 On Linux



Developers of the Proton project presented version of Steam Play Proton 5.13-4, with which you can run Cyberpunk 2077 on Linux. True, this requires that a productive AMD video card and Mesa Git be installed on the user’s PC (Mesa 21.0-devel Git is recommended).

It is noteworthy that earlier the CD PROJEKT RED team specially provided the Proton developers with the necessary assembly of the game for testing. Also, the developers of the project explained that it took them a long time to correctly implement VKD3D (implementation of Direct3D 11 and 12 on top of the Vulkan API) and the RADV driver for the game.

More than a hundred users have already been able to run Cyberpunk 2077 on Linux via Proton and share your problems and successes on the protondb portal.

Not all users were able to run the new game normally on Linux. Some told that everything works in the game as it should with small, but not particularly critical lags. Other players have explained that there are launch issues, but they are fixable. Also, in some scenes there are no sounds of shots, the music and voices of NPCs disappear, and problems with rendering textures often occur. For some users, the entire game, after launch, rearranges a large black mass, and the only textures that are fully loaded are the characters’ eyes.

One of the users was able to run Cyberpunk 2077 on Linux not on Steam, but on GOG-Galaxy via Proton-5.21-GE-1. He clarified that the textures in it are too dark, the faces of the characters cannot be made out, and the game itself freezes after a few minutes of gameplay.

As a result, about a third of users wrote that they were able to enjoy the game Cyberpunk 2077 on Linux, while the rest were unable to launch it or observed too many different errors after starting the game, which are mainly related to incorrect display of textures and lost sound.
