Of all the games coming out this year, Pacific Drive is one of the few at the top of my wishlist. It looks creepy, engaging, and supernatural in all the right ways as you explore a gorgeously scary zone with your car. While we have seen trailers and some gameplay snippets, we got a new extended look at the game yesterday in a brand new trailer, which looks incredible.

Scavenging and surviving meet some really intriguing supernatural and sci-fi elements that look to make Pacific Drive an engaging game. With the announced specs, it might seem like it could have some trouble running on the Steam Deck, but if upscaling like FSR is implemented well and we can scale the render resolution a little, this could be very playable on the Deck. Otherwise, I do see at least 30 FPS being possible on more powerful devices with Z1 Extreme, 7840U, or Intel Core Ultra 7 APUs.

Pacific Drive will be released on February 22nd this year and is available to pre-order on Steam with a 10% discount. It is currently $26.99 and will go up to $29.99 on February 29th.
