Playing Cyberpunk 2077 on Linux is possible and you only need these two things

I am the one who never tires of saying that gaming on Linux is not what it used to be. And it is that in a very short time since Valve launched Proton and Steam Play, the panorama of video games in the penguin system has completely changed.

So much so that the last definitive example of what relatively easy to play anything on Linux nowadays, is that Cyberpunk 2077, the triple A game of the moment (for more than one reason) that was created only for Windows, can already be played on Linux, and you only need a couple of requirements:

Cyberpunk 2077: better on Arch Linux or derivatives


Although Cyberpunk is a game only for Windows, this is not an impediment neither for this nor for almost any other game in the same circumstances it can be played in Lunux thanks to Proton, the Wine-based compatibility layer that Steam uses so that we can play games Windows on Linux.

Valve just updated Proton to version 5.13-4 and in the notes they added to the release they comment that Cyberpunk 2077 is now playable and it only requires an AMD GPU and Git Table.

However, some users seem to have made it work even with an Nvidia GPU as long as they have the 455.45.01 driver, so the most important thing here is install the mesa-git package.

Cyberpunk 2077 Linux

If you don't know what Mesa is, it is an open source graphics library that provides a generic OpenGL implementation for rendering 3D graphics, and that allows us to play high-level games that require things like Vulkan and OpenGL.

Now the only popular distro that includes Mesa git in their repositories is Arch Linux or derivatives like Manjaro and KaOS, so installing it is as simple as using the AUR repositories. In fact, mesa-git / lib32-mesa-git is already in the Manjaro repositories.

So basically you need a distro where you can install Mesa, preferably an AMD graphics, buy the game on Steam, update the client to have the latest version of Proton, and of course, meet the minimum hardware requirements. In the video above of the user who managed to run the game, * this * remains about 30FPS with medium graphic quality and an RTX 2060 M **. Not so bad.
