If you thought Outlast and its sequel were terrors, you aren’t ready for Outlast Trials, the prequel to the popular franchise. The game takes us to the era of the Cold War, when the Murkoff Corporation is kidnapping people for their heinous experiments. Your sanity, durability, and morality will all be tested here. If you can survive, you can leave. If not, well…that’s to be seen. Usually, the ideal way to play this would be via PC, but it would be just as fun in a portable format. However, can you actually play this in that way? Can you play Outlast Trials on Steam Deck?

If it’s verified, you will see a small rectangle bar with a green checkmark that says verified. This means that Valve has tested the game to certify that is playable on the Steam Deck. The interface, controller mechanics, and graphics are all guaranteed to work. If you do not see that bar on a game’s page, it isn’t Steam Deck verified.
