Can You Play Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora on Steam Deck?
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is available on a number of platforms, but can you run it on a Steam Deck? Here’s what you need to know.
The Steam Deck is a nifty handheld device capable of playing some of the most demanding games available. So, it’s no surprise that players wanting to try out Ubisoft’s latest open-world extravaganza, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, are hoping Valve’s handheld will run it. Unfortunately, those hoping to try out Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora on the Steam Deck might be disappointed. Below, we explain whether or not you can run Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora on the Steam Deck.
Yes, technically, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is playable on the Steam Deck. However, it is not officially sold via the Steam storefront for the Steam Deck and requires players to install Ubisoft’s launcher to get it to run. Even if you are able to get it to run on the Steam Deck, it doesn’t run very well, barely hitting 30 FPS consistently.
Of course, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is available for Steam on PC. However, getting it to run on the handheld seems nigh on impossible without an official port from the developers. It’s a demanding title on PC, thanks in large part to its immersive world and gorgeous visuals.
