Proton and ProtonDB

Proton is a new tool released by Valve Software and integrated with Steam Play. Proton makes playing Windows games on Linux as simple as hitting the Play button within Steam. Under the hood, Proton comprises several popular technologies, including Wine and DXVK among others that gamers would otherwise have to install and maintain themselves.

ProtonDB is a crowdsourced Linux game compatibility reports database containing reports about more than twenty thousands games.

Not developed by KDE but, still very helpful, Bottles is a free and open source software that uses environments to help you easily manage and run Windows apps on Linux. You can have immediate access to the most popular game stores (e.g. Epic Games Store, EA Launcher, Battle.net etc.) and then play your favorite games, as if you were on Windows.
