Kojima Productions‘ Death Stranding is now playable on Linux thanks to Valve’s Proton. The game was released yesterday, so it’s quite nice to see this level of support for Linux gaming coming from Valve.
Hello. A new build has been pushed to the
nextbranch in the Steam client. With this build, Death Stranding is now playable.
The game does require the latest Nvidia and AMD drivers. We’ve had success on Nvidia with Nvidia drivers 440.100 and 450.57, and on AMD with Mesa 20.1.3 with LLVM 10.0.0. If you are on AMD and experience a graphics error dialog on startup, please restart the Steam client once to ensure you have the latest Proton configuration settings for the game.
In the Steam client, the Proton 5.0 app should have a “next” beta branch in its Properties dialog, which you can choose to start testing the 5.0-10 release candidates. Note that the name of the build in the Steam Settings dialog will not be updated. I will post changes here when we push new builds. The source for the latest RC build is available on the proton_5.0-next branch in these repositories. This branch may receive forced updates.
In this issue, we are interested in problems that are new to the 5.0-10 RC builds, and in feedback about Death Stranding. If you find new problems in the “next” branch, please confirm that the problem does not occur in on the “default” branch before reporting it here.aeikum (on Valve’s GitHub)
