Nearly four hours in, I am not at all convinced that Redfall is a good game — unless there’s a lot of hidden depth, it feels like a rare miss from Arkane.
But unlike that other recent big release, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you can make it playable on Steam Deck with a few easy tweaks.
I’m not saying it’ll look good, but it’s a heck of a lot better than the default setting!
Before: 24fps for this grainy mess below.
After: 43fps, and things look smoother, too!
