Linux support for Battlefield 2042?

★ Pro

Will this game be supported on Linux in some capacity?

 

Thank you!

Probably not natively but Valve's proton is sounding promising for compatibility with windows games.

Directly from Dice, not as far as i know, but Valve are working on getting battleye and EAC working under proton (their wine version for the steam deck) so it should be possible once/if Valve gets EAC running.

If a native client is released then there's already native EAC support, but afaik there's no linux client coming.

 

Can track it here if you're interested;

The problem i see here is that steam seems only to launch origin.

@Player55 No. The Linux operating system will not be directly supported.

Linux support for this game is needed and should be available without using Steam.

Just a quick update to this thread and other linux-related ones as i saw this earlier today.

So, that should in theory mean proton/wine and BF2042 is a go.

@Fringerunner Good catch. Sounds solution-worthy to me…!

@frantayps I've been out of the Linux game since I returned to gaming but does Wine or a similar program allow Origin to launch? I swore that @StarscreamUK was gaming on Linux.
