The new cloud saving feature in Steam promises easy switching between the Deck and the PC

“Users can then resume their game on any PC, laptop or other device. Steam will also automatically download any save game changes when users return to their Steam Deck and wake up the device.” Dynamic Cloud Sync must be enabled by developers and using it isn’t mandatory for players. However, if it’s not enabled and players switch to another device after suspending their Steam Deck without exiting the game, they’ll need to continue without their most recent save game progress.

When switching between Steam Deck and other PCs, the business claims it will allow smooth save file transfer. “We anticipate that, as with other hand-held gaming devices, users will regularly suspend their Steam Deck without abandoning the game,” Valve added. “With Dynamic Cloud Sync, their progress will be there waiting for them if they choose to play on another device (whether a PC or another Steam Deck),” it continued. “With Dynamic Cloud Sync, Steam will automatically upload all modified save game data to the cloud prior to the device entering sleep mode,” it added.

But Persona 4 Golden won’t work on Valve’s handheld at this stage. Announced in July, Steam Deck is described as “a powerful all-in-one portable PC” capable of running the latest AAA games – although not all titles are suitable for handheld play. It was originally scheduled to launch in December, but Valve delayed its release by two months due to material shortages. The company said earlier this month that Steam Deck is “on track” to launch in February.
