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 get it to 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. Therefore, in this guide, we will see how to make it work in Lutris.

Please note that the Battlefield 1 version of Lutris works with Origin. So if you have the Steam version of Battlefield 1, it’s better to follow the instructions on your own.

Install Lutris

The Lutris app 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’ll need to install it via 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 update command.

sudo apt update

Finally, use the apt install command to set up Lutris on 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 echo command to set up the repository on your computer.

echo “deb ./” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list

After setting up the Lutris repository on your computer, you will need to download the Lutris repository key using the wget command.

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add –

Once the repository key is set 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 app is available for Arch Linux (and Manjaro) users in the “community” software repository. To make it work, use the following pacman command.

sudo pacman -S lutris


Fedora makes the Lutris application available from the official software sources. To get it working, use the dnf install command below.

sudo dnf install lutris


If you are using OpenSUSE Linux, you will be able to install the Lutris application on your computer using the zypper install command below in a terminal window.

sudo zypper install lutris

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 start creating a Wine configuration for Origin.

Step 5: On the third page of the installer, find the “Continue” button. When this button is selected, Lutris will download the Origin EXE and a script file that allows Linux users to update the Origin client.

Step 6: Once Lutris finishes downloading everything, it will continue setting up Wine and setting things up. When Lutris is done configuring, you will need to select your GPU for DXVK. Choose “AMD” or “Nvidia”, followed by the “Continue” button.

Step 7 – When Lutris has finished configuring DXVK, you will see the “Installation Complete” screen. Click “Launch” to launch Origin. When Origin starts, sign in to 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 gaming!
