You Can Play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey On Linux, But Not Without Some Help

Windows is the preferred gaming OS among gamers and that is why almost all of the PC games are released for Windows Os and skip on Linux. You can play games on Linux and now you can play Assassin’s Creed odyssey on Linux with a little help of third-party software.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey doesn’t officially support Linux OS, which makes it surprising that YouTuber “ドイツ人” has managed to run the game on Linux.

The Youtuber used “Wine” and “DXVK 0.81” to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Linux. The system used to play the game featured Ryzen 7 2700X and RX 480.

As you can see in the video below, the game runs at an acceptable frame rate on Linux with the help of third-party software. However, the DXVK delivers 88% of the Windows D3D11 performance. Meaning that while the game is playable and runs relatively smooth but in terms of performance it still lags behind Windows OS.

Speaking of the game, it is currently unplayable on CPUs that don’t have support for AVX. Ubisoft has taken a notice of its and assured that the game will be playable on CPUs without AVX support with a future patch.

We heard your feedback and are now actively working on a solution to extend the supported CPUs for our players to be able to run Assassin’s Creed Odyssey without AVX support, within the minimum requirements.

Not only that, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is also coming to Nintendo Switch but, it will be a cloud version and will not render on the hybrid console. The reason why Nintendo Switch version of the game will be rendered on the cloud is that Switch isn’t powerful enough to render the game itself.

Furthermore, PC is also getting a cloud version of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey with the help of Google Project Stream. Since October 5 Google Project Stream is streaming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and is playable through Chrome browser.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an open-world action RPG developed by Ubisoft. The game is now available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
