Run steam and re-launch the download.
 

 

As you can see, the download is not complete (while the game is not released, we will have this problem).
 
We have to download the game with steamcmd.

cd /home/USER/Documents
sudo mkdir steamcmd
cd /home/USER/Documents/steamcmd

sudo wget http://media.steampowered.com/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
tar -xvzf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz

./steamcmd.sh +@sSteamCmdForcePlatformType windows +login USER PASSWORD +force_install_dir ./MasterArena +app_update 704020 validate +quit

 

Download complete, copy and paste MasterArena subfolders and files to /home/User/PlayOnLinux’s virtual drives/Steam/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/MasterArena

 

Once it’s done, download this file : PlayOnlinux_AddOn_MasterArena

Unzip it and click on “Tools” > “Run a local script”.

 

Select the script and proceed with the installation.

 

 

Now, launch Steam and run MasterArena :
