Proton is a compatibility layer that allows Windows games to run on Linux, and it does so by using a modified version of Wine and a set of high-performance graphics API implementations. Our team has been developing and optimizing Proton for some time, and Proton now has a high level of coverage.

Proton already supports most APIs, and most games run directly. We are continuing to improve Proton’s compatibility, and our goal is to get as close to 100% coverage as possible.
