Moved UNSOLVED Now that Epic has released EAC for FREE, and the Division 2 is already native due to Stadia, will you PLEASE turn on EAC for PC LINUX users?20 Likes/25 Replies/24884 ViewsDarkpriest667 4 posts
I'd like an update if we can get one. I have no intentions of installing Windows on any machine in my family household. My wife and I really enjoy The Division 2, but we won't be playing it (or any ubisoft games) if there is no support for it. That's unfortunate, because this is a title we really like.
Stadia supports it, so we know you folks know how to enable a sub layer to allow for Linux on EAC.

This should be an even higher priority given that Microsoft has put Windows 10 on the path to pasture, and have remained firm on their very poor design decision to require TPM 2.0. Even the PCs in my house that have TPM 2.0, I still don't want Windows 111 on them as the primary OS since TPM architecture is such that only one OS can own the TPM, that isn't going to be Windows for me.
Ubisoft has been such a great force in the industry, and has been very good for PC gaming. Their games release all platforms on day one.... not 6 months or a year and a half later. PC releases are not ports or an afterthought.
Ubisoft please4, become less of a Microsoft DirectX shop and embrace vulkan. You can still release for windows and performance will increase. Embrace metal too, and get the mac platform on board.
Gaming is the only reason Windows is on my PC.
Yeah, yeah, I know... you still have like nearly a dozen proprietary game engines in house. They probably build for linux too, If not, maybe its time to clean house there too.

@tcarlisle2012 I attempted to run again today and it still does not run. EAC just reloads over and over and I eventually have to reboot the OS. I am running it through lutris and wine, since I did not buy the game on steam, since UBI, like every other publisher has their own launcher I started buying them through the launchers.. stupidly.

yepp, same here, I would love to play the division2 with my friends again. And since my pop os experiment is going so well (The Division 2 is the exception here), I would not return to windows anymore. Please Ubi, just do it!
