Steam Deck, worried about Epic Games games? Don't worry, there is a solution

Steam Deck, worried about Epic Games games? Don't worry, there is a solution

Steam Deck

We already know that Steam Deck will be available starting February 25, 2022. With an operating system based on Proton, the new console from Valve will be able to count on many titles already optimized but in case someone wants to play the games on the Epic Games Store? There is no danger: thanks to a new tool, in fact, it will be possible to do so.

Specifically we are talking about the Heroic Games Launcher. This is not a novelty never seen before in the PC landscape, far from it. Currently the tool is already available for PCs and is based on Linux. Its goal is to launch the titles on the Epic Games Store and is fully compatible with Steam Deck. Yes, because the Valve console (or rather, the operating system of the same) is based on the open source OS created by Linus Torvalds, which despite being even less popular than Windows is meeting the favor of many users who prefer it to the OS produced by the house of Redmond.

The news of the actual compatibility with Steam Deck has arrived in the last few hours. The latest Heroic update, 2.1.0 introduces compatibility with the Valve console, also introducing support for other features, such as the ability to use the pads of the Xbox and PlayStation consoles. In addition, the latest update also introduced Wine Downloader, which allows you to download the latest versions of Wine-GE and Proton-GE, tools that allow the execution of Windows programs.

The tool is completely free and it will be possible to launch all the titles offered by the Epic Games Store, without necessarily having to buy them on the Valve client. Keep following for all the news and announcements in the pipeline from the world of video games.

Thanks to Heroic, even the Xbox pads will be compatible with the Steam Deck: you can buy one on Amazon.

Terraria to get Steam Deck optimizations soon

Terraria, the side-scrolling platformer survival game from Re-Logic is getting ready for the upcoming Steam Deck launch and it sounds like we can expect a good experience from it. A game that is massively popular, with 48,670 playing it right now on Steam!

It already has native Linux support and it seems they're going to do some tweaks to get it just right on the Steam Deck. Writing in their latest Terraria State of the Game here's what they said:

Funny you should ask! Steam Deck optimizations are nearly complete - in fact, we are likely looking to push those live soon to be ready well in advance of Steam Deck launch in late February. Unless you are playing on Steam Deck, you will not see much difference in this build, outside of a handful of bug fixes, etc. Our team is beyond excited for this new platform, and we have had a ton of fun messing around to try and get things feeling and running 'just right' in time for launch. As for what else we have going on - a lot of experimentation continues around the future. After all, we need to be sure that our labors are worthy of your love moving forward, right?

Additionally, work continues on tModLoader which is the open-source, community-driven modification platform for Terraria to improve support for the latest major version of the game.

You can buy Terraria on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.
