Players are wondering whether or not they can play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Steam Deck.

A Steam Deck is Valve's new handheld gaming device. It's optimized for your Steam Library, as every game will appear there just as it does on PC. There's an official dock that will be sold separately, which will connect you to external displays, wired internet connections, and more. The dock will be available for purchase in late Spring 2022.

For $399, you can get a Steam Deck with 64 GB of storage and a carrying case. For $529, a Steam Deck is also available with 256 GB, faster storage, a carrying case, and a Steam Community profile bundle. For $649, a Steam Deck will have 512 GB, the fastest storage, premium glass covering, carrying case, a virtual keyboard theme, and the Steam Community profile bundle.

As of right now, CS:GO has not passed all compatibility checks. Throughout the next couple months, we expect that CS:GO will be checked for compatibility and optimized for the Steam Deck, as it's a very popular game on their platform.

Games that have passed these compatibility checks include Elden Ring, Overcooked 2, Cuphead, NBA 2K22, Risk of Rain 2, God of War, and Stardew Valley. These games are all popular throughout multiple demographics of players, which gives a range of people a reason to invest in a Steam Deck.
