Practically 4 hours in, I’m not in any respect satisfied that Redfall is an effective sport — except there’s plenty of hidden depth, it seems like a uncommon miss from Arkane.
However not like that different latest massive launch, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you may make it playable on Steam Deck with a couple of simple tweaks.
I’m not saying it’ll look good, nevertheless it’s a heck of lots higher than the default setting!
Earlier than: 24fps for this grainy mess under.
So what’s the magic repair? Effectively, the sport appears to default to 800p medium spec on the Deck — and with a type of AMD FidelityFX Tremendous Decision (FSR 2.1 High quality) that appears to not be engaged on the Deck proper now.
As a substitute, I’m operating the sport at 1280 x 720p, low spec, with FSR 2.1 Extremely Efficiency, and whereas it might probably make the sport look a bit muddy in movement, no less than now it’s playable!
Listed here are the settings I used:

Earlier than you begin taking part in, another tweak I like to recommend: pull up the Deck’s fast settings menu and, below Efficiency, set your Refresh Fee to 40Hz and Body Limiter to 40fps. That ought to enhance each battery life and responsiveness — you would possibly discover my settings are consuming extra power, however I instantly noticed a dip in wattage after locking the refresh price and FPS at 40 every.
Till or except Bethesda and AMD difficulty some fixes, that’s my advice for Redfall on Deck.
