Elden Ring Verified Playable Steam Deck

Elden Ring is verified playable on Steam Deck

Rage on the run.

Elden Ring will be playable later today on PC. But what if you want to play it away from your desktop? With Valve’s Steam Deck scheduled to start shipping tomorrow, Souls-like fans with deep wallets and a yearning for adventure will no doubt wonder if Elden Ring can be played on the go. Well, wonder no more. Elden Ring, and seemingly all FromSoftware games, are playable on the Steam Deck.

Twitter user Wario64 shared proof earlier today that Elden Ring is playable on the Steam Deck. According to the image, the game has received the green checkmark, which means it’s fully Verified and works without issue. The verification was confirmed over at SteamDB, which listed the game as fully compatible as of 1:45 PM ET.

 

Elden Ring joins its other FromSoftware brethren on Steam Deck, save for a few. Dark Souls Remastered, Sekiro, and Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin are playable on Steam Deck. There are some outliers, such as the original Dark Souls II, which hasn’t been checked for compatibility. Dark Souls Remastered has a yellow icon, which means it runs but “may require some manual tweaking by the user to play.”

A Souls game on a handheld, eh

Being able to play Elden Ring on the go does sound great. After all, the game is new and exciting, and has managed to become one of the best-reviewed games in years. For those of us who plan on traveling after it launches, playing it on the Steam Deck seems wonderful. There are likely some caveats to consider, though.

It’s a massive game, for one, which means it’s going to take dozens of hours to beat. And the Steam Deck’s battery might not offer dozens of hours. Hopefully you’ll find a place to charge up. Also, it’s a Souls game on a device you can throw. That makes me just a bit nervous.
