Hello, I'm new to linux, I'm having this problem where Overwatch can't detect any graphics hardware, granted that I'm using an igpu, which is Intel HD Graphics HD4000

I used Lutris to Install Battle.net then used the launcher to install Overwatch.

 

My neofetch : 

OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS x86_64 
Kernel: 5.4.0-48-generic 
Packages: 2040 (dpkg), 9 (snap) 
Shell: bash 5.0.17 
DE: GNOME 
WM: Mutter 
WM Theme: Adwaita 
Terminal: gnome-terminal 
CPU: Intel i7-3770K (8) @ 4.200GHz 
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 
Memory: 3638MiB / 23739MiB
