New Proton Experimental update has come out that fixes a few regressions with Proton 8, adds compatibility to a few more titles, fixes a memory leak with the Ubisoft Connect overlay, improves Elden Ring compatibility, and a few other fixes. Plus, you are no longer a pirate with Babo: Invasion. Apparently the game thought you didn’t buy it previously.

The following titles are now playable:

  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
  • Minecraft Legends
  • Company of Heroes: Battle of Crete

The following regressions from Proton 8 have been fixed:

  • Baldur’s Gate 3 no longer launches to a black screen in Vulkan mode.
  • Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition and Divinity Original Sin II: Definitive Edition no longer crash on resolution change.
  • Path of Exile no longer crashes.
  • GTA V no longer freezes after each key press.


  • Improved Elden Ring compatibility compared to Proton 8.0-1. It can still be a bit finicky.
  • Added a temporary workaround for EA Launcher crashing. Steam Deck’s on-screen keyboard may not pop up automatically while using it.

The following issues have been fixed:

  • Fixed Proton Experimental regression causing Payday 2 to crash on start.
  • Fixed memory leak in Trackmania and Ubisoft Connect overlay.
  • Fixed Madballs in Babo: Invasion claiming the game wasn’t purchased.
  • Fixed PlanetSide 2 launcher.
  • Fixed Tales of Berseria screen tearing with Vsync enabled.
