EAC support now added for Linux and Mac ahead of Steam Deck's launch.

Many games already run pretty good. The only ones that don't run are the ones that either use some obscure framework or API or ones that use anti-cheat.

The issue with anti-cheat is that many of them make system calls directly to Windows, which is something that Wine was not capable of handling. This is why many games that use client-side anti-cheat (PUBG, Apex Legends, Rust, etc) did not run on Wine/Proton. But in kernel 5.11, Valve added a patch that allows the kernel to intercept these system calls and handle them in userspace. Thus making it possible for anti-cheat software to work with Wine.

Currently they have only got EAC working. Perhaps Battleye will be next.
