Steam Deck owners can stream Game Pass titles to their device

A new beta for Microsoft Edge allows Steam Deck owners to install the browser and then use it to stream Game Pass games.

The new version of Microsoft Edge for Linux is compatible with the Steam Deck, and Microsoft has shared details on how the hardware can now stream Game Pass games from the cloud. Users just need to install the browser and then opt for the latest beta version. After that, Xbox Cloud Gaming can be used to stream games to the platform, but download-only Game Pass titles aren’t available. (above PC gamer)

Microsoft has provided step-by-step instructions on their support site that users can follow to ensure they install the required software correctly.

“We’re particularly excited about this ourselves, as we believe it can open up new opportunities in the Linux gaming community,” Edge’s community manager wrote on Reddit. “You can also still play a number of titles from Xbox Game Studios natively on Steam Deck today. Please check here for a list of verified games.”

earlier this month, elden ring launched with issues for PC and Steam Deck users. Earlier this week, however, Valve detailed the fixes for the Steam Deck version. These have been made more effective due to the platform’s limited GPU/CPU combinations.

Valve programmer Pierre-Loup Griffais said: “On the Linux/Proton side, we have a fairly extensive shader pre-caching system with multiple tiers of source-level and binary cache representations pre-set and shared by everyone be shared among users.

“On deck we’re taking this to the next level as we are targeting a unique GPU/driver combination and the majority of the shaders that you run locally are actually pre-built on servers in our infrastructure.” He added: ” When the game tries to issue a shader compilation via the graphics API of its choice, these are usually skipped since we find the precompiled cache entry on disk.”

In other news, Hogwarts: Legacy has been confirmed that it will come to the Nintendo Switch. However, details such as the release date and whether the game will only be available on cloud have yet to be announced.
