Capcom has finally released Resident Evil 4 Remake for all platforms and has been highly anticipated for 2023. The story will be taking Leon on a new journey on his zombie-hurting adventure with dark gritty storyline and rememberable villains. This time around Leon is tasked to rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of US president in the game universe.
This remake version has an updated storyline, gameplay features, and impressive visuals. Which makes the game a must-play for all next-gen gaming platforms. The game is officially supported on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC, but can it be played on the Steam Deck?
Don’t worry you Steam can handle Resident 4 Remake
Yes, Resident Evil 4 Remake can be played on the Steam Deck, which is Valve’s very own handheld gaming. The handheld also has a high-performance output. Despite being a portable device, the Steam Deck has a custom AMD APU that is specifically designed for gaming, providing a superior gaming experience.
To achieve optimal performance, players must use FSR 2.0 Supersampling. This will apply less pressure on the handheld to provide mesmerizing details on the screen while giving optimal performance. Moreover, Steam Deck’s display is close to 720p and makes it easier to render.
In the current state of the Resident Evil 4 Remake, the game can run smoothly with a frame rate of 50-60 FPS. Players can also lock the game at 30 FPS for a consistent experience. Although there may be some caching issues that cause frame rate drops. Other than that, the game is pretty much playable on the handheld platform as of now.
In conclusion, players can expect a pleasurable experience while playing Resident Evil 4 Remake on the Steam Deck. The device’s high-performance output allows for smooth gameplay and the game’s impressive visuals. Additionally, the story has also been reimagined which makes the game a pretty enjoyable experience.
