Wine, a piece of software that aims to provide Linux users the “luxury” of running Windows software, is getting more and more important games to work. We’ve figured users would like to know what important titles they can play.
A few years back, users could run only a handful of Windows games and most of them were not working properly. Nowadays, platinum games (rated on a Wine scale in which platinum means it works just like on Windows), are a lot more common.
Here is a list of the most interesting games that have Platinum status and have been released in the past few months:
On the third place, there’s Ridge Racer Unbounded, a racing video game published by Namco Bandai Games and developed by Bugbear Entertainment, the first from the franchise to make it to PC. It requires at least Wine 1.5.0.
On the second place rests Spec Ops: The Line, a third-person shooter set in Dubai in which players experience war in a devastated and abandoned city overwhelmed by the desert. It requires at least Wine 1.5.7.
Mass Effect 3, on the first place by far, is the conclusion of the Mass Effect story and delivers an amazing single-player and multiplayer experience. The Platinum status has been awarded for the retail release and not for the Origin version. It requires Wine 1.5.5, but for version 1.01 you will need 1.5.7. Download Wine 1.4.1 / 1.5.8
