Steam Deck will run native Linux games where it makes sense

Valve has clarified that when it comes to which model of a sport to run on the Steam Deck, the native Linux incarnation will be applied – relatively than the Home windows activity via Proton – if it makes sense to do so. In other phrases, if the native Linux port runs good.

There was some confusion close to this simply because some eagle-eyed individuals had spotted that Portal 2, one of Valve’s personal game titles that has been ported to Linux, was down in SteamDB as getting advisable to operate on the Steam Deck by means of Proton (meaning the Windows variation, facilitated by the compatibility layer, Proton, to run on SteamOS which is, of study course, a Linux-based functioning method).
