Steam Deck All supported, confirmed, unsupported games list

The Steam Deck has been making a lot of noise in the gaming community, and that’s because of a lot of good reasons. Valve has managed to create a handheld that’s cheap, powerful, repairable, and upgradable. One setback in buying the same is the missing support for different anti-cheat mechanisms as it runs Linux (SteamOS).

Nevertheless, the gaming scene on Linux is improving thanks to Proton, and anti-cheat companies have started noticing Steam Deck and enabling anti-cheat support for different games.

With tons of games out there, it can be hard to track down all the currently supported/unsupported games on Steam Deck. To make things easier, here’s a list of all the supported and unsupported games on Steam Deck.

How hard is it to enable Anti-Cheat for Linux?

Developers of popular games like Fortnite and Will To Live Online have denied that the games will be made available for the Steam Deck. When asked about making Fortnite available on the Deck, Fortnite’s Tim Sweeney Tweeted, “We don’t have confidence that we’d be able to combat cheating at scale under a wide array of kernel configurations; including custom ones.”

Many people criticized Tim for “not trusting his product” (Epic Games owns Easy Anti-Cheat). Interestingly, when he was asked about his opinion on Linux back in 2019, here’s what he said.

Since the problem here is related to custom Linux kernel, many people suggested that Fortnite could only be made available for signed kernels or the custom SteamOS 3.0 kernel for the game to be playable on Steam Deck.

On the other hand, BattlEye Anti-cheat has made it easier for developers to enable anti-cheat in their games. A tweet from BattlEye’s official Twitter handle suggests that allowing the anti-cheat is just a toggle away.

Recent code changes in Proton suggest that Apex Legends might also be coming to Linux and Steam Deck, which is great news for Steam Deck fans.
