Is the Ghost of Tsushima Steam Deckv version playable?

If you’re asking if Ghost of Tsushima is Steam Deck verified, it actually isn’t. Officially, as far as Steam is concerned, Ghosts of Tsushima is unsupported. However, they note that there are developer comments from Sony, which provide a little better news.

Sony, in their developer comments, said, “You may notice that Steam marks the game as ‘Unsupported’ for Steam Deck. This is due to the Legends co-op multiplayer mode requiring Windows to access PlayStation Network integrated features.” However, they claim that the entirety of the single-player experience is both playable and optimized for Steam Deck.

While the multiplayer experience needs a Windows PC, there’s plenty of content on Steam Deck. Due to the nature of Sony’s multiplayer strategy on their PC games, this is likely to be the case for many of their games with online features going forward.

Ghosts of Tsushima Steam Deck settings

If you can manage to look past the shortcomings of playing on Steam Deck, you’ll want to know upfront what to expect. If you’re playing the game on Steam Deck it’s probably best to lock it at 30fps and play on medium settings across the board. You can tweak to your tastes from here, but that, along with FSR3, should give you a solid and consistent experience on Steam Deck.

Ghost of Tsushima is now available on PC via Steam in addition to PS4 and PS5.
