Ghost Of Tsushima’s Single-Player Campaign Playable On Steam Deck, Multiplayer Legends Mode Not Playable


Ghost Of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is launching on PC later this week at time of writing, and developer Sucker Punch and Nixxes have just released a new clarification about the release.

Regarding Steam Deck playability, the game’s single-player campaign will indeed be playable on Steam Deck. However, on the game’s Steam page, the developers clarify that the multiplayer Ghost Of Tsushima: Legends mode will not be playable on Steam Deck.

It’s the latest wrinkle that comes along with this new multiplayer mode. The multiplayer mode and PlayStation’s insistence that players link their Steam accounts to a PlayStation Network account has already resulted in the game being delisted from 180 countries around the world.

Now, once again due to needing to connect to the PlayStation Network, total compatibility with Steam Deck isn’t on the table.

“We know many of you are eager to play Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on handheld gaming devices like the Steam Deck. We’re happy to share that the single player experience, including the Iki Island expansion, can be enjoyed on Steam Deck and similar handheld gaming PCs as we’ve worked extensively to optimize performance and deliver the best possible experience on these devices.

You may notice that Steam marks the game as ‘Unsupported’ for Steam Deck. This is due to the Legends co-op multiplayer mode requiring Windows to access PlayStation Network integrated features.”

Surely there will be those who’ve side-loaded Windows onto their Steam Deck that attempt to get Legends running, so it could still very well be possible. That doesn’t change the fact that it’s upsetting to see PlayStation continue to fumble the ball with this PC community it is trying to build.
