Ver.1.4.1/Ver.1.4.1D Patch Notes
Please check the list of changes below for details on the main improvements and fixes in this patch.
Fixes of previously known issues are marked with an asterisk.
- Added Steam Deck™ support
- Fixed an issue where inputs via the keyboard were registered for the game even when the Alt key was held down*
- Fixed some other minor issues
It's not clear exactly what they've done for Steam Deck support, as annoyingly they don't say. Although we can see on SteamDB (example) that they now have dedicated content depots for the Steam Deck so they've likely tweaked some in-game resources to work better. Valve has also put them back through verification and they're now showing up as Deck Verified.
