Top New Games You Can Play With Proton Since May 2021

mechwarrior 5

Almost summer! Here is our usual monthly update! Boiling Steam looks at the latest data dumps from ProtonDB to give you a quick list of new games that work (pretty much?) perfectly with Proton since May 2021 – all of them work out of the box or well enough with tweaks:

And now here’s our monthly video showing all these very nice titles in one go:

Mechwarrior 5 apparently runs very well on Linux with Proton

I am personally quite excited to see a new Mechwarrior title. It’s been a long time! Before We Leave also looks like a nice take on the city building game. Samorost is not a new game per se, but it’s apparently a (free) HD remaster of the 2003 game by Ammanita Design (who also worked on Machinarium and Chuchel). And Bomberman needs no introduction. Free to play, but apparently playing to unlock some specific features. Till next month!
