Forza Horizon 5 finally gets Proton support ahead of Steam Deck launch

Header image

Valve has gradually been removing review embargos on Steam Deck. Reviewers have not been allowed to discuss SteamOS 3.0, but they have been allowed to discuss performance characteristics of certain games, namely Control, Devil May Cry 5, and Forza Horizon 5. We’ve been following these developments closely, and we’ve had an eagle eye trained on the growing list of Steam Deck Verified titles for the better part of a month. One title has been, and still is, missing.

Forza Horizon 5 is still absent from the Steam Deck Verified list. In fact, it still has yet to make an appearance on the Steam Deck Playable list. Valve has been very protective of media coverage since announcing the Deck over the summer, so it surprises me that Forza Horizon 5 is one of the few titles reviewers are allowed to show and discuss.

This could change with today’s release of Proton 7. The release notes on Github mention that Forza Horizon 5 has become ‘playable’, however the game is still absent from the official Verified/Playable list at the time of this writing. This suggests Valve has internal builds of Proton capable of running the game perfectly – unless you’re Linus Tech Tips…

Here is a list of the other games that are now playable with Proton 7:

  • Anno 1404
  • Call of Juarez
  • DCS World Steam Edition
  • Disgaea 4 Complete+
  • Dungeon Fighter Online
  • Epic Roller Coasters XR
  • Eternal Return
  • Forza Horizon 5
  • Gravity Sketch VR
  • Monster Hunter Rise
  • NecroVisioN
  • Nights of Azure
  • Oceanhorn: Monster of the Uncharted Seas
  • Order of War
  • Persona 4 Golden
  • Resident Evil 0
  • Resident Evil Revelations 2
  • Rocksmith 2014 Edition
  • SCP: Secret Laboratory
  • Wargroove
  • Wartales
  • Yakuza 4 Remastered
