FEX-Emu is an open-source emulator project that has been particularly focused on being able to run x86/x86_64 games on AArch64 with great speed including around Steam and Steam Play (Proton) Windows games.

FEX-Emu has been advancing well and out this afternoon is the FEX-Emu 2207 release with more fixes around Proton as well as now the ability to use Pressure-Vessel. Pressure-Vessel is used by Steam for running Proton games. Those wanting to try out Steam Play games on 64-bit Arm using FEX-Emu are encouraged to use the Steam Linux Runtime "Soldier" beta. There are known performance issues but it continues to be improved. Plus there are a variety of other Proton fixes in this release.

FEX-Emu 2207 also adds support for EroFS root file-system image support to complement its existing SquashFS support, improvements to its thunks code, enabling Wine application profiles, support for the CLMUL instruction emulation, and other fixes.
