Linux players get access to many more Steam games.
With Steam Play you can buy games in the Steam store and play them across the platforms. An update to the service that was first launched in 2010 comes with very good news for Linux users.
Get access to Windows games
Official figures from Steam show that the “Linux Year” is still not here – only 0.49 percent of users run Steam – but now, those using Linux can enjoy access to a much larger game library. Via Steam Play, these players get access to (part of) the large Windows library of games.
At the moment, it is only a selection of games, but it will probably only increase in the future. See the full list at the bottom of the case.
Available in beta
Valve will in future test more games to make sure the experience is good enough to make it available to Linux through Steam Play. If you have special game wishes, leave a vote here.
If you’re having trouble, you can enable the entire Windows library for Linux. You do this under “Enable Steam for all titles” in Steam Play. Note that games that are DRM-protected or use an anti-cheat system do not work properly.
Here is the current list of supported games:
Bejeweled 2 Deluxe
Doki Doki Literature Club!
DOOM II: Hell on Earth
FINAL FANTASY VI
Google Earth VR
Into The Breach
Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
