Elden Ring Proton GE 9-10

A new Proton GE update was released yesterday, and if you have been experiencing an issue with Elden Ring not allowing multiplayer if you don't own the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, you might be very happy with this update. The new Proton GE 9-10 version does have some component updates and the removal of d8vk build options, but the biggest part of this update comes from a protonfix that allows EAC for Elden Ring to function correctly if you don't have the new expansion. It's nice to have for people that can't get the expansion, though I recommend it if you enjoy soulslikes.

For those who don't know about Proton GE, how to get it on the Steam Deck, or how to update, check out our Proton GE guide! We go over all of this and explain why having GE is important.

Proton GE 9-10 Update Changelog:
