Hello and welcome to my blog dear Linux users! I know you are a isometric RPG and Baldur’s Gate fan. Because of that you have a question. Is Baldur’s Gate 3 Linux compatible?

Baldur’s Gate 3 for Linux is not available yet. However, the game is still in the early access. Once its fully released, we might be able to play Baldur’s Gate 3 on Linux. I am pretty sure that they will include this compatibility in the future.

Do you want to play Baldur’s Gate 3 on Linux now? Well, you can always play it via GeForce Now and Stadia. Of course you need to have a fast internet for these third party gaming applications to work!

Also it is possible to try steam play and proton. Baldur’s Gate 3 is not officially approved proton compatible. However, it is %100 working. You can always check protondb and see the feedback and results by yourself. Currently Baldur’s Gate 3 flagged as Gold. That means it runs perfectly on Linux after some tweaks.

As I have said before, if you can’t make it work on steamplay/proton or lutris try the easier path. Get GeForce Now or Stadia and enjoy the game without facing any performance/compatibility issues. I think this is the best solution until we get Baldur’s Gate 3 for native linux.


By the way, if you haven’t played yet, I would recommend you to play another Larian Studios game, Divinity Original Sin Enchanted Edition. It is a story rich isometric RPG game with Linux support. Anyway, this BG3 linux article ends here. Thank you for tuning in and I am looking forward to see you again soon! Take care now.
