[HOT] : Steam Deck will finally be compatible with games like Apex Legends, Destiny 2 or PUBG.
When the Steam Deck was officially announced, Valve got its hands on the fire: it promised that all products in the current library would be compatible with the machine. In fact, they said they would consider a bug if one of them didn’t work. However, it soon became clear that some multiplayer titles weren’t going to leave the main menu due to issues with the anti-cheat systems. Now this problem is closer to being solved.
The situation was not easy, as some of the most successful and popular multiplayer titles were going to be dropped from the Steam Deck. These are video games like Apex Legends, Fall Guys, PUBG, Destiny 2, Apex Legends or Halo: The Masterchief Collection, products that can finally be enjoyed on Valve’s portable system.
Two anti-cheat systems already compatible with Steam Deck
One of the most popular anti-cheat systems, EasyAntiCheat, announced in a statement that it will be compatible with Mac and Linux. Steam Deck’s operating system, Steam OS, is based on Linux and uses Proton to run games as if they were running Windows. “To make it easier for developers to launch their games on PC, we’ve added support for Wine and Proton. “
BattlEye a également fait de même, an autre technologie that develops them using the avoidance of tricher dans leurs jeux. “BattlEye has provided native support for Linux and Mac for a long time, and now we can announce that it will also work with Steam Deck (Proton).” However, activating this feature will be up to the developers themselves, as explained on their official Twitter account.
Steam Deck is a portable machine that hides an entire PC inside. The console will start arriving in December, but not all customers who reserve it will receive it in 2021. Valve’s idea is to deliver the hardware gradually and in different waves.
