YouTube channel ContraNetwork posted a video testing the demo of the Resident Evil 4 remake on Steam Deck.
The demo does not have official optimization for Valve’s portable gaming computer, therefore, in order to play it, device owners need to install the Steam OS 3.4.6 preview update, as well as a new hotfix for Proton.
At 720p resolution with minimal graphics settings and with FSR 2.0 technology enabled (in the “Performance” mode), the game’s frame rate fluctuates around 40-50 FPS in open locations and in some cases can reach 60 frames per second, including indoors, and cutscenes. In general, the smoothness of the gameplay on far from the most powerful Steam Deck hardware can be described as quite comfortable, but in some places, there are still short-term slowdowns.
The full release of Resident Evil 4 on PC, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 will take place on March 24.
