In an interview with PC Gamer on Thursday, Valve designer, Greg Coomer has revealed that everything is, so far, on track for the Steam Deck’s planed release in February, 2022. And the company is optimistic that it will not be needing to delay the release anymore past its February, 2021 launch date.

While that conversation was about the Steam Deck hardware and how the console is being prepared for the other developers, it also touched upon plans that the company has for its own games. Valve is currently working on its games to ensure the players have a better experience playing them on the handheld.

Games like Dota 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive as well as the Half Life series are all undergoing updates. The objective behind is to make these games play better for Valve’s upcoming handheld PC gaming console, the Steam Deck.

Several game development teams are involved in making these games more compatible for the Steam Deck. However, how these individual games are being developed for the console, varies greatly from one another.

Speaking about the same, Coomer says, “The Dota [team] is doing something pretty innovative, at least within the context of Dota”. Further adding that, “Just this past week, they shipped a new mode that allows players to play the game well using thumbsticks”. 

This update that Coomer referred to also brought back the four player co-op mode. It also seems very well suited to the control speaking. Speaking of this, Valve designer Lawrence Yang states that, “They call it experimental controller support because they’re still looking for feedback, but you can play a real game of Dota with the gamepad now”.

Adding to it, Yang explains that the Portal games have already been verified for the Steam Deck and that they are all working nicely on the handheld console. However, Left 4 Dead 2 might be receiving some amount of attention. Yang adds that, “we do want to look at all of the Valve catalog to make sure things are good on Deck”.
