As the release date nears for the Steam Deck, players are wondering how many of their titles they’ll be able to play on the go.
Anticipation is mounting for the Steam Deck, Valve’s portable system that will allow players access to most of their Steam library in a Switch-like console for the first time. While not every single game will work on the system, Valve is working hard to test as many titles as it can, and is updating its fanbase as it confirms each one’s playability.
Valve has dubbed these games “Steam Deck Verified,” guaranteeing that they will work with minimal issues on the powerful console. Vale has just added a staggering 150 titles to the list. Players can sign into their website and see how many of their games will work fine on the Steam Deck, as well as any games that they have on their wishlist and might now want to pick up. Only 60 games so far have been proven incompatible with the system, including Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Fall Guys, but the hit ratio is much greater than expected for this portable PC.
The total number of Steam Deck Verified games is now 310, and covers a wide variety of titles, from AAA titles like Resident Evil Village and Death Stranding to newer indie gems like What Remains of Edith Finch and Spiritfarer. No matter a player’s tastes they’ll likely find that most, if not all, of their library is represented here, and Valve will only keep testing games to make sure that the number of Verified titles increases. The Steam Deck will even support Mods, ensuring one of gamers’ favorite PC benefits survives to the console.
Videos of the Steam Deck in the wild have showcased the game running even the latest AAA titles remarkably well. Even Cyberpunk 2077, which had so many problems with its last-gen console releases that it was pulled from the PlayStation store, has been spotted running on the Steam Deck with no real issues.
Valve has been working to making the Steam Deck customizable, going as far as to release CAD files that allow anyone to print their own shell for the system. The system itself will run a custom version of GNU/Linux, meaning that players will be able to tinker and customize their consoles to their heart’s content.
The Steam Deck is scheduled to start being shipped on February 25.
