Mafia 2 Linux Wine D9VK – how to play this game on Linux.

Vito Scaletta has started to make a name for himself on the streets of Empire Bay as someone who can be trusted to get a job done. Together with his buddy Joe, he is working to prove himself to the Mafia, quickly escalating up the family ladder with crimes of larger reward, status and consequence… the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as untouchable as it seems.

Enter the world of Empire Bay – World War II is raging in Europe and the architecture, cars, music and clothing all echo the period in stunning detail. As time passes, hot rod cars, 50s fashion and some of the era’s best music reflect the birth of a cool new era.

Mafia 2 Linux Wine D9VK – how to play this game on Linux.

Mafia II uses 2K Czech’s proprietary Illusion Engine which isn’t available for Linux. However, you can play this game without any problems via Wine and some other components. If you wonder how to do it, read on. Lets begin!

For this game you’ll need Wine or Wine-Staging, DirectX 9, D9VK, and NVIDIA PhysX.

Mafia 2 will run fine with Wine only but you’ll get a better performance with D9VK. If you don’t know how to install it, you can follow our understandable D9VK installation guide.

For DirectX 9 installation you have two choices:

  • Install Wine DirectX 9 impementation (d3dx9) via winetricks:
winetricks d3dx9
  • Install DirectX 9 via Microsoft’s official installer:

You’ll have to download Microsoft’s official installer and run it with double click just like in Windows. Follow the installer’s steps.
