Steam Deck will not be able to run Destiny 2, Apex Legends, PUBG, and many other big games by default. There is, however, a glimpse of hope that all of these popular titles will run on the gaming handheld in the future.
Steam Deck will not run Destiny 2, Apex Legends, PUBG, and more
It is possible that Steam Deck will not allow us to run some of the most popular titles. The software of the gaming handheld is to blame for everything.
The recent announcement of the new portable console from Valve is a very pleasant surprise. We already have a complete set of basic information about Steam Deck, and not all of it is entirely positive.
According to PC Gamer, it is possible that Steam Deck will not launch such titles as Destiny 2, PUBG, Apex Legends, and Rainbow Six Siege on the day of its release. All because, to put it very simply, SteamOS software does not work with their anti-cheat systems.
It’s worth mentioning, however, that Valve is obviously aware of this issue. Moreover, Steam Deck is to receive a new version of SteamOS, which will allegedly develop support for anti-cheat systems. However, if it is not properly developed, we will still not be able to launch some of the games mentioned above.
It is also worth adding that there is a way to get around the problem. The gaming handheld allows you to install external software, including Windows, Through this method, one should run the games without a problem, although it’s still too early to take it for granted.
There is still some time until the console’s launch, and Valve has not answered all relevant questions. More details regarding game and system data compatibility should be known in the coming months.
Recall that Steam Deck will release this year in December for a price of $399 dollars.
