      Doom Eternal's latest update now include Denuvo Anti-Cheat, not to be confused with Denuvo Anti-Tamper. Unlike Anti-Tamper, Anti-Cheat runs at the ring-0 kernel level of your PC. 
      The Anti-Cheat can be uninstalled, however it is reportedly required to run Doom Eternal, even in singleplayer mode. 
      One consequence of this new anti-cheat software is that it is now incompatible with Proton (Linux) and its ProtonDB rating has fallen from a previous Platinum award - to completely unplayable.
      Irdeto, the company that maintains Denuvo, has been working on this software for quite some time and it appears that Doom Eternal is the first game to use this software. This announcement about the software was made back in March 20, 2019:
      In this Doom Eternal announcement of May 14, 2020, they state:

      Valve appear to be working on a new Steam Controller, as patent document "Handheld Controllers With Touch-Sensitive Controls" appears on the internet. This is surprising considering that Valve discontinued the old Steam Controller in November 2019.
      The new controller appears to show that the analogue stick can be swapped with different components, such as a d-pad. The patent states, "FIG1 is a front view of an example handheld controller that includes, in part, a receiver that is configured to detachably couple to different controls, such as a joystick, directional pad (D-pad), and the like."
      It's possible that a v2 version of the Steam Controller may be actively worked on for a future release by Valve.

      After some past requests we have implemented ProtonDB links in all relevant PCGamingWiki articles.
      The new link now appears in the form of a ProtonDB icon in the bottom of the infobox where other partner links are placed. This is automatically added when a Steam App ID is added to any game article.
      Proton is a tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated with Steam Play to make playing Windows games on Linux easier to achieve. ProtonDB gather reports from other gamers as they test games with Proton on Linux and provide aggregate scores of how well games perform. 
      Hopefully this link will encourage more reports to be submitted to ProtonDB to help Linux gamers get their games working. I have also spoken to buck, the developer for the site, who is looking into mutual linking from ProtonDB pages back to PCGamingWiki in the future.

      Steam stats show that the number of concurrent logged in users has now exceeded 20 million. The all time highest number for Steam at the time of writing is now 20.3 million users which ocurred on Sunday March 15th, 2020.
      This comes as no surprise as lockdowns continue to be announced worldwide with more and more people staying at home due to Covid-19. Not only this, but the Steam userbase continues to grow, and certain Steam games like CS:GO also achieved its all-time concurrent player peak of over 1 million this Sunday.
