A list with playable and verified titles on Steam Deck has appeared on the net, among them are Death Stranding, Dark Souls 3, Sekiro

In October, Valve confirmed that it had initiated the process of reviewing the entire game library available on Steam and prepare various titles for Steam Deck. This would see the games receive one of three tags: Verified, indicating games fully optimized for the console; Playable, which refers to those that will run on the device but may not be fully optimized; And Unsupported, which are games not currently running on the laptop. Well, from the first lists leaked on the net it emerged that leading titles such as Death Stranding, Dark Souls 3 e Ax have been optimized for the console. Let’s see all the details about it in the next lines of this article.
