Hogwarts Legacy is the Wizarding World game that many have been craving since the ever-popular films hit our screens in the early 2000s. Thanks to technological advances, gone are the days of rough polygons and flat facials features, bringing both the legendary castle and its surrounding areas to life.
This does, however, come at a cost – higher-end components to run a game of this ilk. Due to this, many gamers are wondering what the Hogwarts Legacy Steam Deck compatibility is like and whether you’ll actually be able to run it on the portable device.
Below, we’ll run you through what we know about the Hogwarts Legacy Steam Deck compatibility so you’ll know exactly if you’re able to cast spells on the go.
Is Hogwarts Legacy on Steam Deck?
Looking initially at the system requirements for Hogwarts Legacy, you can see that despite it being a deep game with impressive visuals, you’ll be able to play it if you have older hardware. You’ll be able to get away with an Intel Core i5-6660 (3.3 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 (3.2 GHz) CPU coupled with either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 4GB or AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB GPU.
All of these minimum component requirements are a fair few years old so when you put this in Steam Deck terms, Hogwarts Legacy will certainly run on it, especially due to the smaller resolution of the screen. It may not reach the heights of constant 60 FPS, but in our eyes, it will be more than playable on those long trips.
As for whether Hogwarts Legacy is Steam Deck verified, thanks to the official WB Games Twitter account, we now know Hogwarts Legacy will be Steam Deck verified on launch. This means you’ll get that extra bit of reassurance that if your Steam Deck is your primary ‘console’ to play the game on, you will be able to no matter what.
