Can you play Content Warning on Steam Deck?

The new co-op horror game where you videotape monsters for content is blowing up online, and with how many Steam Deck owners there are people will surely want to know if the game can run on this device. Currently, Content Warning is compatible with the Steam Deck, but it has yet to be officially verified.

There are four verification levels that a game on the Steam Deck can have: Verified, Playable, Unsupported, and Unknown. Since Steam has yet to check for Content Warning’s compatibility, it’s deemed Unknown. But players online have suggested you can still run Content Warning on your Steam Deck with a few caveats.

Content Warning does not have controller support, so the controls are not yet optimized. This game relies on the default controls by the Steam Deck and will be strange to use at first. You’ll have to navigate the menus using your right trackpad. Otherwise, you can eventually figure out all the other buttons through experimentation.

It may be best to wait until Content Warning receives a patch to work with the Steam Deck or to change button inputs. Otherwise, Content Warning can run on the Steam Deck perfectly fine, although the game is still buggy since it was recently released.

Some fans on this Reddit post talking about Content Warning on the Steam Deck suggested using custom Steam controller layouts. If you head to your controller settings on your Steam Deck and select your current layout, you can choose from a list of community layouts instead.

Now you can attempt to play Content Warning on your Steam Deck and see how well it runs on this handheld device without worry. Remember that this is an online game so you’ll need a stable Wi-Fi connection to play.

Other than any Steam Deck issues, some players are experiencing an annoying audio voice chat bug that prevents them from hearing their friends. Luckily, some known solutions can help you fix that.
