  • Are u Ubuntu based distros good to game on?
    If it's on the Epic Game Store I use Heroic Games Launcher. But that's been hit and miss.
  • Fortnite needs to come to linux and here is why
    easy anti cheat is on linux and if they are lazy atleast allow players to play on winethere is already epic games launcher for linux on wine but forntite does not work because epic needs to add support this would increase the players playing the game and would make people want to switch to linux its a win win

  • The Epic Store on Linux continues getting easier to manage with Heroic Games Launcher
  • What is the best way to get games through the Epic Games Store app?
    Yeah dont use Lutris, Heroic front end is better: https://github.com/Heroic-Games-Launcher/HeroicGamesLauncher
  • Heroic 1.10.1 'Kizaru' Released
  • Gaming on Linux without steam?
  • Worth the change from Windows to PopOS for gaming? I'm new into Linux.
    As you saw above I don't use PopOS! but when it comes to gaming, Proton, Wine, Steam, Lutris are much of the same. I'd also recommend Heroic Games Launcher for a Linux alternative to Epic Games Store.
  • Take a look inside the Steam Deck!
    reddit.com/r/Games | 2021-10-07
    I don't think you will need to install Windows on it. SteamOS will simply be open in a way where you can just install third party launchers on the os, like the Heroic Games Launcher.
  • Is there "Proton" for nonsteam games?
    For games on Epic Games Store, you could use https://github.com/Heroic-Games-Launcher/HeroicGamesLauncher. Then choose proton from Steam to run the games in Heroic’s settings.
  • How to create a game shortcut on Mac from Epic games?
    reddit.com/r/macgaming | 2021-10-06
    If you use Heroic Games Launcher there is a button to add shortcut to your desktop.
  • Imma Sit This One Out
    For Epic, there is a popular project called HeroicLauncher that is a launcher for Epic Games (you still have to use the online storefront). However, with Epic announcing EAC support for proton/Linux, I wouldn't be surprised if they made an effort to get their game store working natively so SteamDeck users can buy games.
  • qorry if this has been answered before because I didn't really understand it
    reddit.com/r/SteamDeck | 2021-10-06
    No other game launchers have native versions for linux. However, there are some third party launchers, like Heroic for Epic games.
