Valve at present lists The Final of Us as “unsupported” on the Steam Deck, that means that “some or all of this game at present would not operate” on the hand-held machine. That does not essentially imply that it will not run on Steam Decks, and actually Naughty Canine co-president Neil Druckmann mentioned in December 2022 that it’ll. 

However at this stage of issues it is a roll of the cube, and it could not run nicely or correctly. That may presumably be the state of issues for some time to return: Naughty Canine mentioned yesterday that it’s “prioritizing fixes and patches” for The Final of Us, and so Steam Deck verification must wait.

Listed below are the complete patch notes for this newest hotfix, which takes The Final of Us to model

Naughty Canine additionally linked to a GeForce hotfix driver (model 531.38, if you happen to hold observe of that type of factor) which addresses a random crash difficulty on RTX 30-series graphics playing cards. Nvidia warns that the hotfix driver is “beta, non-obligatory and supplied as-is,” however Naughty Canine mentioned The Final of Us gamers ought to guarantee they’ve it put in.

The “digital camera jitter” drawback is one in every of a half-dozen identified points at present being tracked on the Naughty Canine web site. The complete record consists of:

  • Loading shaders takes longer than anticipated
  • Efficiency and stability is degraded whereas shaders are loading within the background
  • Older graphics drivers results in instability and/or graphical issues
