A mere three days before the Steam Deck is officially launching, Valve has announced a host of games that fit the “Deck Verified” list, but also a way for people to check ahead of time how many of the games they already own are compatible with the forthcoming hybrid handheld PC.
So far, Valve’s portable handheld PC is impressing the people who have had a bit of time with it, and with the previously announced “Deck Verified” program, there are high hopes that not only will the software work well, but most games will be clear and up front about the kind of compatibility with the new system, so there’s no confusion. Most games will work in some form or another due to Steam Deck being an open platform where people with the know-how can install anything they want, but it seems Epic Games won’t be supporting ‘Fortnite’ on the Steam Deck, at least not fully.
As we get closer to the February 25th release date for Valve’s handheld PC Steam Deck, samples of the device are being sent to media, and we’re getting some new information ahead of the final reviews that will likely be out closer to launch. It seems that for now outlets can only talk about the hardware itself, and that so far, the device is sounding pretty good.
