More games will be playable on Steam Deck at launch, thanks to Epic Games

Valve’s Steam Deck has many hurdles ahead of its December launch, but thanks to Epic Games’ newly announced Easy Anti-Cheat Linux compatibility, the device has one less jump to make. Subsequently, the update means heavy hitters like Apex Legends, Halo multiplayer, Fall Guys, and Amazon Games’ New World will all run on the handheld gaming PC when it releases later this year.

In a recent blog post, Epic reveals that its anti-cheat system is now both free and available for use on Linux and Mac as of September 23. The latest version of the software also includes support for Linux’s Wine and Proton compatibility layers, catering directly to Valve’s SteamOS 3.0.

EAC’s arrival on Linux will undoubtedly strengthen the Steam Deck’s launch, but the portable gaming PC isn’t quite out of the incompatibility woods just yet. In fact, if the handheld wants to broaden its library horizons, it’ll need to gain the support of additional anti-cheat solutions. Without compatibility for systems like BattlEye, the Deck will miss out on titans like Destiny 2, Rainbow Six Siege, and even Epic’s own Fortnite.
