A new hotfix release of Heroic Games Launcher is now available. Heroic Games Launcher is an open source game launcher with support for games from the Epic Games Store using the Legendary CLI tool.

HeroicGamesLauncher v2.5.1

This is the first hotfix for the latest stable. A small release but with feelings of a big release.

It also brings initial support for Wine, DXVK, and Winetricks on macOS thanks to the efforts of the Wineskin team, especially @Gcenx that helped us figure it out a few things on how to make it work on Heroic and also is the maintainer of the packages for this platform.

This initial support is interesting for testing but Crossover is still the recommended method to play windows games on macOS.


  • Fix the issue with the download's progress going crazy and duplicating the installation/update.
  • Fix a crash on the Install dialog on some games
  • Fix sideload games not being added to steam automatically.
  • Fix Games failing to start when launched from Steam because they have an update
  • Fix games falling to start when launched from Steam when they had Sync Saves but the path was not defined

  • Fix Login Page container size max Width
  • Possibly fix the state of the game card not correctly updating. Not showing an update button, for instance.
  • [Windows] Fix an issue where Heroic was crashing when opening the install dialog.
