For Harry Potter fans, the upcoming release of Hogwarts Legacy is fast approaching and it seems they're making sure it works on Steam Deck. Well, that might be a bit of a stretch, they might have just loaded it up to see if it works, but the result to players is the same.
When asked about the status of it on Twitter, the official WB Games Support account noted "We reached out to the Hogwarts Legacy team for you and were able to confirm that the game WILL be Steam Deck verified on launch. We hope this helps with your decision! Take care." — good news for anyone who plans to pick it up. Being Steam Deck Verified almost always means it will work well on desktop Linux too.
More about it:
Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books. Embark on a journey through familiar and new locations as you explore and discover magical beasts, customize your character and craft potions, master spell casting, upgrade talents and become the wizard you want to be.
Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. Make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it. Live the Unwritten.
Available for pre-order on Humble Store and Steam.
Something to be aware of though, are all the issues surrounding the Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling. An article on Forbes goes through some of it and goes into better detail than I can. Comments on it are open, as long as people don’t throw around insults at each other, respectful debate is fine.
But hey, that's good. If WB Games did the check internally, it looks rather good for the Steam Deck.
