Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is available now on PlayStation 5, giving fans a definitive superhero experience that makes them feel like Spider-Man. Steam Deck owners may or may not get the sequel but a new update means they can play Spider-Man Remastered and Miles Morales without crashing.

Patch notes were released for both games, revealing that the bug that was causing these games to crash has been fixed. Despite both titles being ‘verified’ on Deck, the two games would crash quite a bit after changes were made in the Display settings.

At the time, players would either have to delete and reinstall these games or go back to the previous update. It was a very frustrating experience, especially for two games that are this beloved, so this update was needed.

Thankfully, this new update ensures that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Miles Morales can run well on Deck. Both games can now have their Display settings changed without any crashing, which is a breath of fresh air.

While many of us can’t wait for a Steam Deck port of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, this shows some of the downside that comes with the handheld. Granted, this was more on the game than the handheld itself, but since Valve’s machine is essentially a small gaming computer, it comes with the system’s flaws.

Fans of the Deck recently got a great port of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Next year, they will be getting a port of Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition, which comes with the base game and DLC expansion.

Sony likes to make PC players wait for their PS5 exclusives, as it ensures more gamers will pick up a PlayStation 5 and get those games. At the least, it’s somewhat assuring to know that these exclusives will make their way to PC in due time, even if the wait takes a while.
