Almost 4 hours in, I am not encouraged that Redfall is an excellent video game– unless there’s a great deal of concealed depth, it seems like an unusual miss out on from Arkane.
However unlike that other current huge release, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you can make it playable on Steam Deck with a couple of simple tweaks.
I’m not stating it’ll look great, however it’s a heck of a lot much better than the default setting!
Prior To: 24fps for this rough mess listed below.
So what’s the magic repair? Well, the video game appears to default to 800p medium specification on the Deck– and with a kind of AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR 2.1 Quality) that appears to not be dealing with the Deck today.
Rather, I’m running the video game at 1280 x 720p, low specification, with FSR 2.1 Ultra Efficiency, and while it can make the video game look a little muddy in movement, a minimum of now it’s playable!
Here are the settings I utilized:
Prior to you begin playing, another tweak I suggest: bring up the Deck’s fast settings menu and, under Efficiency, set your Refresh Rate to 40Hz and Frame Limiter to 40fps. That ought to enhance both battery life and responsiveness– you may see my settings are taking in more energy, however I instantly saw a dip in wattage after locking the refresh rate and FPS at 40 each.
Till or unless Bethesda and AMD provide some repairs, that’s my suggestion for Redfall on Deck.
