3 Planned (1%)

155 Broken (39%)

28 Denied (7%)

Supported

Games that run on Linux due to the developers going out of their way to enable the anti-cheat to run on Linux or games that have anti-cheat which works perfectly fine out of the box under Wine/Proton (e.g. Overwatch, Battlefield 4)

Running

Games that will run on Linux without impact on online gameplay but may require you to perform certain tinkering steps (This does not include any means of explicitly bypassing the anti-cheat)

Planned

Games where the developers have explicitly stated that they plan to enable their anti-cheat to work on Linux or that they plan to support the game natively

Broken

Games that will not run online due to the deployed anti-cheat solution

Denied

Games where the developers have explicitly stated that they will not enable the anti-cheat solution to work on Linux or have denied the possibility of Linux support
