Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the latest in the Star Wars gaming franchise. The game promises that players will build on previous iterations with Cal now an experienced Jedi Knight.

However, recent reviews of the game highlight poor performance and issues with frame-rate and stuttering. What could this mean for the performance of the game, and if you can play it on the Steam Deck? With ray tracing featured, the game is going to demand a lot.

Let’s have a look at what we found.

Can you play Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on Steam Deck?

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been confirmed by the game’s EA page to have ‘no dedicated support’ for Steam Deck. Even though the game will be available on Steam itself (amongst other compatible systems including, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Epic Games and the EA app) there will be no Steam Deck support.

On the one hand, despite there being no dedicated support available right now, gamers could try playing the game anyway through Proton. However, we suspect it might not work well due to the quite demanding system requirements. That being said, there is also always the hope of a later dedicated Steam Deck port, though this seems extremely unlikely.
