While it seemed like this week was a bit of a slow one in terms of new Steam Deck Verified/Playable games, I was shocked to see that there were some pretty incredible ones that snuck in without notice. So, with the week done, here are our highlights of the new games elevated to Steam Deck Verified/Playable status.

Verified or Playable games don't automatically mean they work amazing out of the box. Some of these games may require work to optimize and play well. Here are our thoughts on the Verified system and how it can be fixed.
