Lords Of The Fallen runs fairly well even with and older "staging" version of Wine and DXVK. The outside areas slow down the frame rate a bit and maybe a few flickering textures, but other than that, it looks beautiful! I have heard the Steam version doesn't run at all in Wine, so stick with the GOG version for now.
