Blizzard’s highly anticipated dungeon crawler, Diablo 4, is set to release on June 6 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. With the release date approaching, gamers have been wondering whether Diablo 4 will be available on the Steam Deck and if it will support controller play for PC.
At present, there is no confirmation if Diablo 4 will have a Steam Deck version. However, similar to other Blizzard games such as Overwatch 2 and Diablo 2: Resurrected, it will still be playable on the Steam Deck despite not being fully supported. To install it to your Steam Deck, visit the official Battle.net installer and add the game to your Steam account as a non-Steam game. You can then run it under Proton, and it should run optimally for you.
For PC gamers who prefer using controllers over mouse and keyboard, Diablo 4’s lead game designer, Angela Del Priore, confirms that the game will have controller support inclusion. According to Del Priore, Diablo 4 is the first game in the series that was developed with both PC and console in mind. The team wanted to give players the ability to switch between the two options freely, so the user interface (UI) must be unified enough for easy swapping of hardware inputs.
Controller support makes playing much more accessible, considering Diablo 4 doesn’t follow the standard WASD movement. Playing on a controller allows players to move and use abilities simultaneously with less difficulty. Additionally, with Blizzard implementing over 50 accessibility options for the sequel, players can customize their controllers.
Diablo 4’s release is highly anticipated, and the addition of controller and Steam Deck support will undoubtedly please gamers who prefer playing with their preferred devices. As Blizzard continues to develop Diablo 4, more news and updates related to the game will be announced.
