As of Patch v1.1.0 The Last of Us Part 1 is Steam Deck Verified. After updating the title to this patch on your Steam Deck you will receive the below message when launching the game:
“A recent game update has new optimized settings for the Steam Deck. Would you like to apply the new recommended settings?”
For the optimal gameplay experience, we recommend applying these settings when prompted.
More information on Steam Deck verification can be found here.
In addition to updating the game to v1.1.0 and applying the optimized settings, we recommend the following:
- Leave the 30 FPS cap on for the best performance results
- Check for any Steam Deck System Updates: Steam > Settings > System > Software Updates
- It is recommended that the Steam Deck is restarted after completing a System Update (Steam > Power > Restart)
