The Steam OS, which is running the Steam Deck announced yesterday, is a Linux-based system. For this reason, the console will not launch several games from the TOP 10 list of the most popular productions on the Valve platform – unless the manufacturer finds a way to bypass the restrictions.
The mentioned titles are Apex Legends, Destiny 2, PUBG, and Rainbow Six Siege. All of them are at the forefront of the list of the most played titles on Steam.
PC Gamer drew attention to the problem. As the website explains, Valve has tried to maximize the library of games available for Steam Deck by integrating with the Proton tool, which allows you to run native productions for Windows on Linux. However, the idea does not solve all problems, and the culprit is incompatible with anti-cheat software.
While the games themselves should start, the anti-cheater software will not, which will not allow you to log into the production’s web servers.
Valve is obviously aware of the problem and has already announced that it intends to increase the compatibility of Proton’s software with games and “work directly with anti-cheat vendors” to ensure that Steam Deck tolerates these.
