Bungie will ban 'Destiny 2' players who run the game from a Steam Deck
As noted by Reddit and GamesRadar users, Bungie warns that it will not only ban players who try to run Destiny 2 from your new Steam platform or other SteamOS devices, but also players who try to bypass the restrictions. Not only is it unsupported, but Bungie directly threatens to ban players who try to launch the game anyway. Developer Bungie violated this policy by not allowing Destiny 2 to run unless Windows is installed and running.
Destiny 2 players will only be able to play if the system has Windows installed and running. Players who intentionally attempt to run Destiny 2 on Steam Deck via SteamOS or Proton will not be able to access Destiny 2 Bungies and will be returned to their game library after a while. Attempting to play may result in the player's account settings being blocked.
If you attempt to work around this incompatibility, your Destiny 2 account will be banned. While there are a decent number of games ready to run on Valve's latest portable gaming PC, playing Destiny 2 may result in your account being banned. Fans hoping to play Destiny 2 on Valves new handheld gaming device will not be able to do so due to compatibility issues, and anyone who tries to bypass these restrictions faces a ban.
Valve's official Destiny 2 support page specifically notified players who tried to bypass restrictions and try to run Destiny 2 on Valves that new handheld gaming devices will be banned from playing Destiny 2. Bungie added that player deck "will" who try to bypass Destiny 2's incompatibility with Valves Steam is banned. The Steam Game Guide also confirms that anyone attempting to play Destiny 2 on the Steam deck will be banned, with Destiny 2 developer Bungie writing, "Players attempting to bypass Destiny 2 incompatibilities will face playing Destiny 2 ban."
In a new support page on the Bungie website, Bungie is taking a hard line against playing Destiny 2 on a Steam deck via SteamOS or Steam Proton Valves. On the official game guide page, Bungie, Sony's recent purchase explained that Destiny 2 is not supported by their Linux-based SteamOS steam deck and will most likely never deliver what the company later stated. Unfortunately, owners of Valve's Steam Deck laptops can't play The Witch Queen as Bungie claims Destiny is "unsupported" and those trying to get it to work may face a "game ban".
Official Bungie sources have now confirmed that Destiny 2 will not run on Valves new portable gaming PC, similar to how Fortnite will not be updated for Steam Deck. As reported by The Verge, Destiny 2 players have been wondering for months if Destiny 2 will be playable on Valves. Keen Destiny 2 players have been waiting for news about the game's compatibility and will surely be disappointed.
As if the confirmation wasn't enough, for all players hoping to find a way around this incompatibility, Bungie is threatening that such an action could mean the end of their Destiny 2 career. Also, while Steam Deck is compatible with the Easy Anti-Cheat used by Destiny 2, Bungie will also go one step further if players try to bypass the game platform lock in any way.
real. Bungie also added BattlEye anti-cheat software to Destiny 2 last August, so it may face similar issues, and Tim Sweeney points out that efforts are currently being made to make Easy Anti-Cheat software compatible with Steam decks. Destiny 2 uses BattleEye anti-cheat software , Valve is happy to support the software, as Valve says it will be an anti-cheat solution. Last summer, Destiny 2 developer Bungie released anti-cheat software.
Bungie claims that Steam Deck is an unsupported platform, although Destiny 2 can run using Steam Proton and the game's BattlEye anti-cheat system supports this deck. Valve has made it clear that not all games will run on your new Steam deck, and Destiny 2 seems to be one of the most prominent examples.
It's probably not worth trying to run Destiny 2 on the Steam deck right now, but hopefully Bungie is planning a way around this, especially since Destiny 2 is generally one of the most-played games on Steam every day. On the face of it, Bungies doesn't like racing and just wants Bungies Destiny 2 to run on a native Windows platform.
Destiny 2 already runs on Linux: Bungie had to port Destiny 2 to the Linux-based platform Google Stadia. From a technical standpoint, Destiny 2 already works well on Linux, thanks to Valve's "Proton," a Windows compatibility that's been in development for years. Bungie's help page makes it clear that Destiny 2 will not run on any PC running Valves SteamOS or through the widely supported Steam Play Proton translation layer.
