Steam Deck Update Fixes Some of the Biggest Games

A new Steam Deck update has been released, courtesy of Steam, and it fixes a variety of games that have had issues running on the console through Windows, including Halo Infinite, one of the biggest games on the handheld PC. The improvements come as part of a larger update to the APU driver for Windows on Steam Deck. That said, if you’re not using Windows on Steam Deck, this update isn’t very relevant to you.

“Hello to all Steam Deck + Windows (WinDeck?) enthusiasts! We’ve just updated the APU driver for Windows on Steam Deck to address issues with Halo Infinite and other titles that regressed recently,” said Yang of the update.

As for when the next proper software update will release, we don’t know. Valve hasn’t teased a new update and it’s not been releasing them too frequently. And with it so focused on producing units there’s a chance software updates have taken backseat. Whatever the case, when a new proper update is released, we will update you with everything you need to know.
