Is Overwatch 2 Available On Steam Deck? – Answered

(CTN News) _ The exhilarating shooter Overwatch 2 is coming to multiple platforms on October 4th. A new era for the game’s popular and widely successful multiplayer franchise is on the way.

The game’s compatibility on new platforms will not only bring back many players, but also let new players experience Overwatch 2. Can you play Overwatch 2 on Steam Deck? Let’s take a look.

Is Overwatch 2 playable on Steam Deck? I’ve answered.

Overwatch 2 is playable on Steam Deck. Since the game doesn’t use kernel-level anti-cheat tools, it makes it much easier.

It’s hard to play games like Fall Guys and Fortnite on a handheld like Steam Deck due to their anti-cheat parameters.

Steam Deck is the new handheld console from Valve that can run console and PC games that require a lot of graphics.

Let’s learn how to play Overwatch 2 on that powerful handheld console if you’ve got one.

You don’t have to install Windows 11 or do anything dangerous, but you’ll need Activision’s launcher to get Overwatch 2 on Steam.

  • In your Steam Library, right-click the EXE and select Properties
