Over the last few years, Microsoft has grown the Xbox brand on PC. From PC Game Pass to launching games on Steam, largely, the push has been a success. Now, Xbox is beginning to support Valve's new handheld device, the Steam Deck.
As Windows becomes supported on Steam Deck, so do a bunch of Xbox Games. The Deck now supports almost 15 Xbox Game Studios titles, all of which, of course, are available on Steam. Here's the full list:
- Psychonauts 2
- Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
- The Evil Within
- Fallout Shelter
- Max: The Curse of Brotherhood
- Sea of Thieves
- Fallout 4
- Forza Horizon 4
- Forza Horizon 5
- Quantum Break
- State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition
These 14 games are split into two categories based on overall compatibility, as Microsoft says each studio works on their game's Steam Deck support. Deathloop through Max: The Curse of Brotherhood are all classed as "Verified", meaning they're fully optimised. Sea of Thieves through State of Decay are "Playable", which means they work but some features may be missing.
Sadly, four pretty huge games miss out on any official Deck compatibility due to their anti-cheat methods. These titles are Gears 5, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Halo Infinite, and Microsoft Flight Simulator.
