Can you play Ixion on Steam Deck?
At the moment, neither the developers nor Valve have confirmed whether Ixion is fully supported on Steam Deck. However, the developers have promised to look into this matter as soon as possible. As usual, a lot of players have tried running the game on this handheld console. According to these players, Ixion runs rather well on the Steam Deck. Although it automatically lowers the settings to around Medium, you will still get decent FPS. You will also notice FPS drops in graphic and resource-intensive parts of the gameplay. Players also mentioned that Ixion takes longer to load on Steam Deck in comparison to PC. Well, this should not come as a surprise to most people.
But, there is one big problem that most players have faced. In most parts of the game, players were unable to see the text clearly due to the small screen size. As you already know, Ixion is a simulation and micromanagement video game. This means that there are a lot of small texts that indicate certain objects throughout the gameplay. So, if you are ready to squint your eyes during these parts, you should be able to play Ixion on your Steam Deck without many issues. We will update our article when more information is available. Till then, stay tuned to Digi Statement, and happy gaming.
