Steam Deck will be unable to play Fortnite

Steam Deck will be unable to play Fortnite
Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has affirmed that players will not be able to run Fortnite straightforwardly on Valve’s Stream Deck. Numerous Fortnite fans will be frustrated, particularly the people who were anticipating playing the fight royale game on Steam Deck. Besides, the Steam Deck delivery date is quick drawing nearer, as the gadget is set to be delivered on February 25, 2022.
Sweeney expressed in a progression of tweets that the organization isn’t certain about its capacity to battle cheating in Fortnite while running on custom portion designs. Regardless, Fortnite isn’t accessible on Steam, yet Sweeney’s remarks preclude a Linux form that could run on the Steam Deck.
The Steam Deck runs Valve’s SteamOS, which depends on Linux, and utilizes a similarity layer known as Proton, which permits Steam games aggregated for Windows to run on it. Epic has made its enemy of cheat programming, Easy Anti-Cheat (EAC), viable with Linux and Proton, so engineers who use it ought to experience no difficulty getting their games to chip away at the Steam Deck. For now, Epic won’t be one of them, basically not with Fortnite.
@TimSweeneyEpic Just a fast inquiry, any designs to refresh @FortniteGame to make Proton/Wine be viable with EAC and BattlEye against undermining Linux?

Sweeney portrayed Linux as “an enormously troublesome crowd to serve given the assortment of incongruent setups” when reached for input by The Verge. When inquired as to whether it would be feasible to empower similarity just for SteamOS, he expressed, “Linux is as of now a little market and assuming that you partition it by favoured bit forms, it’s much more modest.” It may not merit Epic’s ideal opportunity to deal with security for what will be a relatively little crowd from the get-go.
Running the game on the gadget isn’t the issue. The Steam Deck runs the Linux-based Steam OS, though Fortnite is Windows-based (it used to have a Mac form). In any case, through similarity layers, Steam Deck clients will actually want to run many games that are not Linux local. For circumstances like this, outsider devices, for example, the Heroic Game Launcher were made.
