The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is definitely one of those games that you enjoy playing in a portable form as well. But in the case of the version for the Nintendo Switch, one has to agree to a graphically ruined game, so all eyes are now on the upcoming Steam Deck, a portable PC from Valve’s “kitchen”. Until now, it has not been publicly shown how The Witcher 3 runs on that device, but now it is the game’s creators who have demonstrated that Witcher can really be played comfortably on a pocket PC like Steam Deck.
Now, we say comfortable, but we have no information on graphic details. It is only clear that the game aims at a performance of 30 fps on the Steam Deck, which is the performance that the Witcher versions for consoles also have.
However, it should be borne in mind that CD Project demonstrated the now old version of Witcher from 2015 and not the new version that should come later this year with improved textures and support for raytracing. That’s not to say that Steam Deck won’t be able to run that more demanding version of the game, but it’s still more likely that the portable Witcher will have to play without that makeup.
Open a portal into the world and play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt wherever you go once Steam Deck is out!
