Elden Ring, will we be able to play it on Steam Deck? Check its operation

Elden Ring is now on sale worldwide for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series, PS5 and PC. Not in vain, FromSoftware fans who have reserved a Steam Deck or are planning to get one in the future will wonder if it will be possible to play it on Valve’s new portable device. The answer is yes.

Elden Ring Receives Steam Deck Verified Seal

Yes, Elden Ring will be compatible with the Steam Deck. In fact, it will not only be “Compatible”, one of the four compatibility categories, but it will be “Verified”. This means that the game is “fully functional”, without the player having to configure anything. According to the user Wario64 on Twitter, these are the results of the official compatibility test of Elden Ring on Steam Deck.

  • All features are accessible when using the default command settings.
  • The game will display Steam Deck icons; has been adapted for the device.
  • Interface is readable on Steam Deck’s seven-inch display.
  • Steam Deck graphical settings render well on Steam Deck.

Although data regarding the rate of images per second or how ambitious the game’s graphic performance will be, it is to be hoped that this “Verified” seal will meet the expectations of those who wish to immerse themselves in the Lands Intermediates on a portable device.

The latest from FromSoftware has become one of the highest rated video games of all time and, what’s better, a work that points to the select group of titles that we will remember for years to come for their influence and idiosyncrasy. A masterpiece, as we have concluded in our analysis.

Elden Ring is now available worldwide for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PS5 and PC consoles.

All types of game support on the Steam Deck

According to Valve, “The Steam Deck review team tests new games every day as they traverse the Steam catalog.” In this way, for weeks and for the next few months, the list of compatible and/or verified video games on Steam Deck will be growing nonstop; in fact, some are not but may be in the future. Just because a Steam game isn’t compatible with the Steam Deck doesn’t mean it can run properly in the future.

The following are Valve’s requirements to receive the Verified icon.

  • Verified: the game works perfectly; no adjustments of any kind are required.
  • Playable: The title may require some manual adjustments to play. “For example, when the user has to manually select a community command setting, use the touchscreen to move around a launcher, etc.”
  • Not supported: This title does not currently work on the Steam Deck.
  • Unknown – This title has not been verified, therefore it is unknown if it is playable, verified, or unsupported.
