This week, Square Enix launched a new revision for Final XIV_, but is not welcome for Steam Deck users, since the game can no longer be played on the portable system. As part of the update, the Final Xiv_fantasía, Steam owners must have their linked Steam and Square Enix accounts, which forces players to use the Steam initiator. According to the resection posters players who bought a version that is not Steam de Fantasía Final XIV seems to be able to play the game in Steam Deck. Unfortunately, everyone else currently has no luck!
Obviously, this situation is frustrating for the owners of Steam Deck. It seems that the handheld could be an excellent option for PC users, but it is not compatible with all Steam games. In fact, the steam page by Fantasía Final XIV officially lists the game as “not compatible” for Steam Deck. It is possible that that changes in the future, particularly since Gabe Newell has shared the love of him by Fantasy Final XIV many times in the past. Maybe the President of Valve will work with Square Enix to solve the problem!
Fantasy Final XIV launched in 2013, and has established a base of passionate fanatics in the last 9 years. However, the last year in particular has seen an explosion of interest, since Streamers as Asmongold have helped to draw attention to the MMO. At one point, the interest in the game increased so much that it caused problems on the server, which forced Square Enix to temporarily stop new sales. The publisher has plans to continue supporting Fantasy Final XIV for the next decade, with improvements in jobs for game textures, lighting and much more. Hopefully, Steam Deck users can enjoy those improvements for themselves, but until then, they will have to settle for playing on the PC!
Fantasy Final XIV is now available at PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC. You can check all our previous game coverage here.
