Watch Dogs: Legion from Ubisoft arrives on Steam, playable on Steam Deck

By - | Views: 27,944

Here's yet another Steam release from Ubisoft, as they continue dumping their older titles on Steam. Watch Dogs: Legion is here and playable on Steam Deck. We've already had Ghost Recon BreakpointThe Division 2Immortals Fenyx Rising and Assassin's Creed Valhalla along with Trackmania on the way soon too. Clearly, Ubisoft want the Steam monies.

The good news with Watch Dogs: Legion is that it doesn't put up much of a fuss on Steam Deck. Much like previous Ubisoft release there's no real Steam integration so no Steam Achievements, and once again it has Denuvo Anti-Tamper so if you keep changing Proton versions for testing and / or keep swapping between machines, it might eventually lock you out for 24 hours if you've done it too much (very annoying).

Apart from that, it's pretty smooth sailing in terms of how stable it is but performance like a lot of open-world games needs you locking it to 30FPS because it cannot keep a stable 40. I tested between DirectX 11 and DirectX 12, with DirectX 12 clearly being a lot smoother overall.

Quoting: elmapulim already at the point that i read news like this and think:
of course it does, why wouldnt it?
Because many...don't or have serious issues. I've blogged about quite a lot of issues over the last year.

i know but we already are at the point that when an big game is announced, it supporting steamdeck/linux is an rule rather than an exception, at least that is how im feeling =D
