Elden Ring at one point did not work with Proton 8 and had to be used with Proton 7. Well, today’s update to Proton 8 now improves compatibility with said title, although the patch notes mention “it can still be finicky.”

Most of the updates in Proton 8.0-2 are backported changes from the latest Proton Experimental. Several fixes have been added to the Ubisoft Connect overlay, Trackmania, Baldur’s Gate 3, Divinity: Original Sin, Path of Exile, and Red Dead Redemption 2, whether it was a crash, a memory leak, or a black screen.

If you happen to use the EA App, a “temporary workaround” was added to keep it from crashing. Bear in mind the Deck’s OSK “may not pop up automatically while using it.”

See the patch notes on GitHub.
