You Can Play DOOM (2016) and Hitman: Absolution on Linux with Wine Staging 2.0

Apart from all the new features and enhancements implemented in Wine 2.0, Wine Staging 2.0 adds support for several new windowscodecs image formats, better support for semi-transparent layered windows, improved emulation of deferred rendering contexts, and some other, smaller bug fixes and under-the-hood changes. But Wine Staging 2.0 adds a lot of improvements that would allow you to run some of the latest Windows games and applications on your GNU/Linux distribution. The development team lead by Michael M??ller is reporting on some of them, proving everyone that Direct3D 11 is not completely unusable on Wine.
