With Elden Ring and Valve's Steam Deck releasing almost concurrently, many gamers wondered if Elden Ring would run on the Steam Deck. Being able to play a game as massive as Elden Ring would be a dream come true, and fortunately, that appears to be the case. Wario64 on Twitter confirmed that Elden Ring is verified to play on Steam Deck.
Ever since Nintendo released the Switch in 2017, gamers have grown attached to playing console-quality games on the go. Nintendo was able to market a new way of playing games, and it proved to be a huge success. Now Valve wants to recapture that lightning in the bottle with the Steam Deck, a handheld device capable of playing games from the Steam library.
Not all games in Steam will be playable on the Steam Deck, as games need to pass certain criteria to be compatible with the Steam Deck. However, early reports suggest that around 400 different titles will be compatible with the Steam Deck. It is also being reported that since you can install windows in the Steam Deck, players could theoretically play games on GOG and the Epic Store via the Windows desktop. But we do not recommend doing that because it isn't an official way to gain access to games on GOG or Epic Store, and it could lead to problems.
