In a turn of events I definitely didn't expect, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is now playable on the Steam Deck! This morning, Ubisoft pushed out a patch for The Division 2 that fixed the issue causing the game to be unable to boot on the Steam Deck!
Of course, I was excited to hear this, so I immediately downloaded the game to test it out. The game did boot and I was actually able to play without any issues! In the small time I have tried it, 40 FPS feels fantastic, but there are still a lot of drops and slowdowns when running across the world. But combat feels great and mixed input support is there! Needs some optimization, the drops are pretty constant, but we will see what we can do!
Overall, it is great to see The Division 2 now playable, but we definitely need to work on those drops. And getting that Ubisoft Connect notification to leave and never come back.
