Deadly Premonition 2 on Steam Deck – performance preview

Infamous for its tragic performance on Nintendo Switch – Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is now available on PC. How does it perform on Steam Deck?

Sadly, the port is very mediocre. Deadly Premonition 2 has no graphic settings, you can’t even change the resolution. Fortunately, performance is pretty good considering how the game runs on Nintendo Switch.

A Blessing in Disguise works on Steam Deck at 720p resolution and delivers 60FPS in indoor locations and 45-50 when exploring the city. It’s not that bad, on Nintendo Switch we rarely saw more than 20FPS.

At the time of this writing, the game has a strange issue with camera rotation assigned to FPS – it only runs smoothly at 50Hz (or 100 – 150 etc. on PC). It is worth setting the game’s Steam profile to 50FPS/50Hz for best framepacing.

Deadly Premonition 2 natively supports the gamepad and has no issues with it on Steam Deck.

Great on Deck
