The games on Friday for the highly anticipated game from FromSoftware. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a third person, action adventure game. Complete with RPG elements.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Gameplay (Windows, Linux via Proton)

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice comes with prosthetic tools. These also belong to the “one-armed wolf”. Since he can be rebuilt to unlock new actions. Such as powerful charge attacks. These attacks allow the player to broaden their approach to defeat their foes.

So at this point, I’m sure you’ll agree. A Linux port would be better off than using Proton. There is a Steam Discussion post. So you can Vote and show your support.
But since we have a workaround. Hopefully someone from FromSoftware will take support seriously.

Tools such as the Grappling Hook are available. This can also bring an extra dimension to exploration. And of course and exploring the world of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
