Today we had 2 updates coming to the Steam Deck! The first was a Steam OS update, bringing everything over from the Preview build, including performance improvements for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Then, we had a small Beta Client update which brings over some fixes, as well as adds a tooltip to the “other” section in the storage settings on Desktop Mode to see what it contains.
