Microsoft has detailed which of its titles are compatible with Valve’s Steam Deck, with only a handful of titles being unable to be played on the handheld device, due to its anti-cheat software.
In a post on Steam, Microsoft explained that each developer in Xbox Games Studios is responsible for ensuring the compatibility with the Steam Deck, but that priorities at these studios might make this take longer than expected. However, many titles are already compatible, with a large amount having already been “Verified” by Valve.
The following games have been Verified for the Steam Deck:
- Psychonauts 2
- Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
- The Evil Within
- Fallout Shelter
- Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood
These games haven’t yet been Verified by Valve directly, but are currently playable:
- Sea of Thieves
- Fallout 4
- Forza Horizon 5
- Forza Horizon 4
- Quantum Break
- State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition
For the games that won’t be working on the Steam Deck, it shouldn’t be surprising that issues with the anti-cheat systems are the problem. Halo Infinite and The Master Chief Collection are both unsupported, along with Gears of War 5 and Microsoft’s Flight Simulator. Microsoft hasn’t detailed what will happen if you try to get these titles to work on SteamOS, but don’t try it with Destiny 2, as Bungie might ban you from playing.
