Dying Light 2 has been out for over a year now. So, with the Steam Deck becoming more accessible, an increasing number of players are wondering whether Dying Light 2 is playable on Steam Deck. Let's get into the answer in this Dying Light 2 Steam Deck guide.

As described on the game's Steam page, Dying Light 2 is playable on Steam Deck. However, whilst Techland's open-world zombie apocalypse RPG is playable on the handheld system, it isn't completely optimised. 

The only major caveat only appears to be that some in-game text within Dying Light 2 will be difficult to read. Besides that, the Steam page still states that "all functionality is accessible when using the default controller configuration", "the game will show Steam Deck controller icons", and the "game's default graphics configuration performs well on Steam Deck". 

If you've recently bought your Steam Deck and looking to fill your library, now is a good time to grab Dying Light 2 since it's often on sale. At the time of writing, you can get discounts on three different versions of the game: 50% off the standard edition, 45% off the Deluxe edition, and 30% off the Ultimate edition. 

That's all you need to know from our Dying Light 2 Steam Deck guide. For more of the latest on the game, check out what we thought of the DLC in our Dying Light 2 Bloody Ties review. For the collectors out there, have a look at the full list of the Dying Light 2 secret duck locations
