Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is heading to Steam, but will it be playable on Steam Deck?

Originally a PlayStation exclusive, Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is getting a PC release via Steam. The popular superhero game tells an original story in the Spider-Man universe, drawing inspiration from plenty of popular media releases. While the original game released on PlayStation 4 back in 2018, a remastered port was made available for the PlayStation 5 in 2020.

Now, on Aug. 12, the remaster will head to Windows PCs via Steam and the Epic Games Store. It's no secret that Spider-Man Remastered is a pretty graphically demanding game, so what does that mean for the Steam Deck?
