Steam Deck will have support for Epic Easy Anti-Cheat

Steam Deck, the sensational and extremely promising portable console, or rather portable PC from Valve, every month is more and more interesting product that is more and more likely to become a success. This time around, there was a report that the potential game library that would be available through Steam Deck would indeed be impressive, as well as have “opportunity to grow”.

The fact is that this Friday the company officially announced that games that depend on the Epic Easy Anti-Cheat software will now actually be able to run on the company’s portable device. And to be more precise, Valve said that adding support for projects based on Epic Easy Anti-Cheat to Steam Deck is a very “simple process”. Developers, according to Valve, will not need to update their version of the SDK for this, or make any other really time-consuming changes. Also according to the company, late last year Valve added support for BattlEye through a dedicated Proton compatibility layer for Linux: “This means that two of the biggest anti-cheat systems are now easily supported on Proton and Steam Deck.”

In practice, this change should mean even more of your favorite games will run on Valve’s handheld when it goes on sale next month. But yes, it’s also worth considering that it’s one thing for Valve to make it easy for developers to keep their games running smoothly on Steam Deck, and quite another to do all the necessary work in order to ensure compatibility with projects that do not have full and official support. namely Steam Deck. By the time Valve announced support for BattlEye last December, it had stated that all developers would have to do was simply contact the company in order to activate the software for their game.

And yet, even at this point, it’s not clear if some of the most popular multiplayer games on Steam and beyond that use BattlEye and Epic Easy Anti-Cheat, including games like Rainbow Six Siege and PUBG, will work from day one on Steam. deck for sale. Anyway, Valve tried to solve this problem with the recently announced Deck Verified program. A little earlier this week, Valve added 67 project titles to the database, 39 of which should work without any problems on the upcoming portable device.
