It includes a modified version of Wine called Proton that offers compatibility with games for Windows. "

Valve says that the method, which is a fork of Wine, is based on Vulkan and offers full-screen game support, controls and performance improvements and multi-threaded games. However, according to Griffais, it is a project under development and they are still testing one by one all the games in the Steam catalog to see which ones can work well with this compatibility environment.
