Resident Evil is probably one of the series which got the most remakes and HD remasters over the year. This is because fans are always eager to play old games with all new improvements and graphics. Definitely the case for the latest fourth-chapter remake, which you can also play on the go. Wondering about the best Resident Evil 4 Remake settings for Steam Deck? Let's take a look.

The fourth chapter is when the series took a little more of an "action" vibe overall, as opposed to the more survival horror vibes of the past. The reissue has seen some problems, such as the remake crashing or stuttering, but overall fans are satisfied.

So let's see how to make it run on the go and look at the best settings to run Resident Evil 4 Remake on Steam Deck.

Best settings to run Resident Evil 4 Remake on the Steam Deck

Since this is a recent release, you can't expect the Steam Deck to be able to run it at 60 FPS. So we have to choose between setting graphics to low for the best performance and keeping it at medium and suffering a slight drop, playing at 30 FPS.

Here are the best settings for a decent performance on the Steam Deck:

  • Screen Resolution: 1280x720
  • Refresh Rate: 60 Hz
  • Frame Rate: 60
  • Display Mode: Full Screen
  • V-Sync: On
  • Cinematics Resolution: Full HD
  • FidelityFX Super Resolution 2: Performance
  • Texture Quality: Medium / Low (for best FPS)
  • Texture Filtering: Medium / Low
  • Mesh Quality: Low
  • Shadow Quality: Low
  • Shadow Cache: On
  • Contact Shadows: Off
  • Ambient Occlusion: Off
  • Volumetric Lighting: Off
  • Particle Lightning Quality: Low
  • Bloom: Off
  • Screen Space Reflections: Off
  • Persistent Corpses: Few
  • Motion Blur: Off
  • Lens Flare: Off
  • Lens Distortion: Off
  • Depth of Field: Off
  • Resource-Intense Lightning Quality: Low
  • Resource-Intense Effects Quality: Low

Also, remember that the overall experience on the Steam Deck is definitely better played in handheld mode, rather than the docked since the overall low quality is definitely more noticeable on another screen.
