Play Windows games on Linux

Play Windows games on Linux

Postby MBMz10 » Sun Sep 30, 2018 2:51 am

Gaming on Linux gets better as Valve/Steam has been working on a 'fork' of WINE that enables Windows games to run on Steam Linux systems. It is in 'beta' but I have tried a few Windows games on my Linux Mint system and it works. It all works in the background seamlessly, awesome.

Not a big gamer myself but this means I can simply start steam and play a few games without having to reboot into Windows, wait for all the updates to finish hijacking my system and reboot again, the joys of Windows.

Anyone else tried this out yet?

Hi

not a gamer but did install 'steam' and purchased 'Zombie Army Trilogy' to get the feeling.
