Best Starfield Steam Deck settings

You won’t enjoy pleasurable space exploration on the Deck, nor will you get a consistent framerate. If you do insist on playing on the Deck, there are a few ways to make the experience a little more bearable.

I'd wait a few weeks for Proton patches - I bet it'll get smoothed out.
fwiw this author doesn't mention some steam decks come with 512GB SSDs so this game isn't too big.


Steam Deck now has a bigger games library than the Nintendo Switch by some margin

Steam Deck officially supports a massive amount of games, easily providing players more choice than what is available on the Nintendo Switch.

It's much larger than that, if you factor emulation and how easy it is to run pretty much any "unsupported" game on the Deck using Bottles.

It's insane how most games I've thrown at it have worked with little to no effort on my part, some of my games run better on Linux than Windows.

notachance2d ago

technically speaking it also includes Nintendo Switch libraries..

Even without emulation, it’s massively broader than switch. This is so obvious I’m surprised it’s merited an article.

Can't wait to get a Steam Deck OLED soon!

You'll enjoy it, I only got the 512GB model because I wasn't sure if I'd like it, I should have bought the 1TB model, but I guess I can add in a 2TB drive when SSD prices relax again.

I actually played Heroes of Might and Magic 3 on it a few days ago.

I feel like the second big update that releases late this year will do just that. Part of the story expansion is also new means of transportation on planets.

A good DLC could turn some heads. The Destiny games got momentum that way too.

What player spike?

I checked steamcharts through the link in the article and it went from 8,000 to 11.500, so yea 20% but when the game peaked at 330,000 It's safe to say that the actual effect of this update was negligible.

LostPotato2d ago

Doubt it'll ever get redemption. As many developers have said in various interviews it's beyond saving.

Just release the mod tools and expansion and move on.

Profchaos2d ago

Cyberpunk 2077 had some strong bones i disliked it on launch because I could see the potential I could see the strengths of what they wanted to achieve but it wasn't done yet

They didn't get the memo the game is dead and the Bethesdabots only want magic and fantasy.

Starfield fans? The game only has 9 thousand current players, worldwide! As a company you cannot waste time on creating "Major features", it is simply not profitable. Just move on.
