How to play Battlefield 1 on Linux
Battlefield 1 is an FPS game developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts. The game is the fifteenth release in the series. It was released on Steam for Windows in 2016. However, it was never released on Linux. Here’s how to make it work on your system.
How to play Battlefield 1 on Linux
Battlefield 1 runs on Linux via Proton on Steam and Lutris. On Steam’s Proton, it’s a bit more complicated. So in this guide, we will see how to make it work in Lutris.
Please note that the Lutris version of Battlefield 1 works with Origin. So if you have the Steam version of Battlefield 1, it’s best to follow the instructions on ProtonDB on your own.
The Lutris application must be installed on your Linux PC before attempting to install the game. To do that, open a terminal window on the Linux desktop. Once the terminal window is open and ready to use, follow the installation instructions below to get Lutris working on your system.
To use Lutris on Ubuntu, you will need to install it through a PPA repository. To enable this repository, use the following add-apt-repository command below in a terminal window.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris
After configuring the PPA, you will need to update the Ubuntu software sources. To do that, use the following apt upgrade command.
sudo apt update
Finally, use the fit to install command to configure Lutris in Ubuntu.
sudo apt install lutris
If you want to use Lutris on Debian, you will need to enable the official software repository. To get started, use the following eco command to configure the repository on your computer.
echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/Debian_10/ ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list
After setting up the Lutris repository on your computer, you will have to download the Lutris repository key using the wget command.
wget -q https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/Debian_10/Release.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -
Once the repository key is configured on your system, use the apt-get update command to update your software sources.
sudo apt-get update
Finally, install the Lutris application on your Debian Linux PC.
The Lutris application is available to Arch Linux (and Manjaro) users in the “community” software repository. To make it work, use the following pacman command.
sudo pacman -S lutris
Fedora has the Lutris application available from official software sources. To make it work, use the instalar dnf command below.
sudo dnf install lutris
If you are using OpenSUSE Linux, you can install the Lutris application on your computer using the zypper installation command below in a terminal window.
sudo zypper install lutris
Install Battlefield 1 on Linux
Now that the Lutris application is installed on your Linux PC, open the application on your computer. When it’s open, follow the step-by-step instructions below to get Battlefield 1 working on your computer.
Paso 1: Head over to the Lutris Document Page for Origin. Once there, follow the prompts to install the necessary dependencies to use Origin on your system. This step is crucial, as Battlefield 1 will not work without it.
Paso 2: Go to the Battlefield 1 Lutris page. Once you are there, find the “Install” button and click on it with your mouse. When you select this button, your web browser will launch Lutris and begin the installation process.
Paso 3: After Lutris opens, you will see a pop-up window. This pop-up window says “Install Battlefield 1” as well as a description. Find the “Install” button in the pop-up window and click it with your mouse.
When you select this button, you will be taken to the next page of the Lutris installer “Install Battlefield 1”.
Paso 4: On the second page of the installer window, Lutris will ask you where you want to install BF1 on your computer. By default, it sends it to your home directory. However, you can put it anywhere.
After choosing where the game should be installed, find the “Install” button and click on it with the mouse. When you select this button, Lutris will begin creating a Wine configuration for Origin.
Paso 5: On the third page of the installer, look for the “Continue” button. When this button is selected, Lutris will download Origin EXE and a script file that allows Linux users to update the Origin client.
Paso 6: Once Lutris finishes downloading everything, it will continue to configure Wine and configure things. When Lutris is done configuring, you will need to select your GPU for DXVK. Choose ‘AMD’ or ‘Nvidia’, followed by the ‘Continue’ button.
Paso 7: When Lutris has finished configuring DXVK, you will see the “Installation Complete” screen. Click “Start” to start Origin. When Origin starts, log into your account. Then search for Battlefield 1 on Origin, select it, and download it.
When Origin finishes downloading Battlefield 1 to your computer, find the game and click on it to launch it. Enjoy and happy game!
