Almost 4 hours in, I’m not in any respect satisfied that Redfall is an efficient sport — until there’s numerous hidden depth, it seems like a uncommon miss from Arkane.
However in contrast to that different latest massive launch, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you can also make it playable on Steam Deck with a number of straightforward tweaks.
I’m not saying it’ll look good, however it’s a heck of lots higher than the default setting!
Earlier than: 24fps for this grainy mess beneath.
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 an alternative, I’m working the sport at 1280 x 720p, low spec, with FSR 2.1 Extremely Efficiency, and whereas it may possibly make the sport look slightly muddy in movement, no less than now it’s playable!
Listed below are the settings I used:

Earlier than you begin enjoying, another tweak I like to recommend: pull up the Deck’s fast settings menu and, beneath Efficiency, set your Refresh Charge 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 charge and FPS at 40 every.
Till or until Bethesda and AMD situation some fixes, that’s my suggestion for Redfall on Deck.
