Gears 5 no longer needs any workarounds with today’s update to GE-Proton. It works with EAC. However, if you previously played the game with a different version of GE-Proton, you’ll need to remove a couple of EAC-related folders inside the game’s install directory, then verify the integrity of the game files to play it again.
Protonfixes have been added for two games: Two Worlds, and APB Reloaded. As usual, DXVK, VKD3D-Proton, and Wine have been updated. Wine staging patches have been rebased, steam_helper updates have been imported from upstream, and modules from kaldi, OpenFst, and Vosk-API have been imported from upstream.
See the patch notes on GitHub.
