Proton: compatibility layer [d3d 10-11-12 to Vulkan or OpenGl]
Reference: https://steamcommunity.com/games/2214

[*] The Proton compatibility layer uses technologies developed for wine. Proton, the tool that Steam Play uses to provide Windows compatibility, contains a custom version of Wine as well as additional libraries developed alongside it.

Wine is free but you can support the development by buying a copy of a CrossOver product from Codeweavers at https://www.codeweavers.com/products

And you already support Valve by buying games on Steam :D.

Important Remarks:
1. All games bought on steam and played on Linux client (including using the proton compatibility layer) count as a Linux purchase !.
2. Also support companies that ports games to Linux directly by buying “real” native ports !.
