Can you play Lost Ark on Steam Deck?

You might be wondering if Lost Ark, one of Steam’s most popular games, is playable on Steam Deck. This question will be addressed further below.

Can you Play Lost Ark on Steam Deck?

The answer is yes, Lost Ark can be played on Steam Deck.

It is not, however, as simple as you might think, and there are numerous workarounds. In short, there are three ways to accomplish this:

  1. Simply put Install Windows and run it as you would on a PC. This may appear to be a simple solution at first, but it quickly drains the battery and takes several minutes to load the game. Please keep in mind that your battery can only withstand so many charging cycles before it begins to degrade significantly in terms of performance.
  2. GeForce Now Priority.  As a SaaS, this option costs money, but it offers a battery life that is allegedly more than twice as long as running Windows on your Steam Deck. The responsiveness and loading times are both good.
  3. You can use Steam Remote Play Anywhere. This is a stream variant with obvious drawbacks such as lag, input lag, occupying your PC, and so on.

We hope you will find a suitable option for your needs.
