Final Fantasy 14 launcher was having some serious issues when it comes to launching on Steam Deck, but Valve finally found a solution for the players. They did not explain the source of the issue, but their new update for the Proton Experimental is confirmed to fix the Final Fantasy 14 Online Launcher issues.
This fix is currently available for the Proton Experimental users only, and is expected to roll out for stable version. Then everyone will be able to enjoy Final Fantasy 14 on Steam Deck.
This is not the only fix coming with the update though. This update resolves issues from Resident Evil Revelations 2 booting, a crash in Deathloop, video playback in Ghostwire: Tokyo, Street Fighter 5, Ember Knights and much more.
Last but not least, this update also makes a bunch of other games “playable”. List goes a bit long though, so get ready: Age of Chivalry, Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamer Edition, Saviors of Sapphire Wings/Stranger of Sword City Revisited, Iragon: Prologue, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4, Atelier Meruru, Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, Star Wars Episode I Racer, Gary Grigsby’s War in the East, Gary Grigsby’s War in the West, Beneath a Steel Sky, We Were Here Forever, Cities XXL, Cladun X2, Succubus x Saint, Cursed Armor.
Starting with just a launcher fix and bringing up a whole bunch of other solutions? Sounds all great to us. Valve is indeed pushing their efforts hard to make Steam Deck a viable hardware for everyone.
