The Ultimate Guide: Running Diablo IV on Steam Deck Like a Pro

Diablo IV, an action role-playing game, is one of the most beloved games of all time. Since its debut in 1996, it has captured the hearts of its fans and its popularity has only increased over time. Now, with the fourth iteration of the game, Diablo IV is available on Steam Deck.

Players can access Diablo 4 on Steam Deck before its official launch on June 6. To get started, players must download the beta version, which is currently available.

If you want to play Diablo IV on Steam Deck, follow these simple steps to install Battle.net:

Step 1: Switch to Desktop Mode

Click on the Steam button and select Power, then Switch to Desktop. Wait for your device to reboot before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Download the Battle.net Installer

Open your preferred browser and navigate to the Blizzard download page. Alternatively, you can search for it on Google. Download the Windows installer for Battle.net.

Step 3: Download ProtonUp-Qt

To download the latest version of ProtonUp-Qt, open the Discover app and find the “GE-Proton7-51-diablo_4_beta” version. Download it, then close the Discover app once it is complete.

Step 4: Add Battle.net

To add the app to Steam, go to the bottom left of the Steam window and select “Add A Game”. Then choose “Add a non-Steam Game” from the options. After that, open your file browser and go to the Downloads folder. Select “All Files” from the bottom of the page, and then select the “Battle.net-Setup.exe” file.

Step 5: Install Battle.net

Look for the Battle.net shortcut in Steam. Right-click the shortcut and select ‘Properties’. In the window that appears, check the box next to ‘Compatibility’ and select ‘GE-Proton7-51-diablo_4_beta’. After this is done, click ‘OK’ and run the installer. Once the installation is complete, close the installer without logging in.

Step 6: Update shortcut for Battle.net

Open the shortcut menu by right-clicking on it. Then, select Properties and click on Browse. You will be prompted to search for the location of the “Battle.net Launcher.exe” file.

If you wish to use a mouse cursor, hold down the STEAM button and use the Right Trackpad with the Right Trigger as a mouse button.
