Recent patches have finally tackled some of the pesky stability issues that had us tearing our hair out since launch. For the smoothest experience, you'll want to set your Proton version to Proton Hotfix in the compatibility menu. Even with the fixes, the game desperately needs a serious round of optimization. As is, the game barely gets 30fps at the lowest settings and with extreme resolution downsizing. It's doubly disappointing because the developer's previous gem, Nioh 2, runs like a dream in comparison.

Playable Settings (Native@30fps | ~2h)

Temper your expectations because Wo Long's developers have gone on record to say the game is not optimized for the Steam Deck. This configuration tunes everything all the way down in hopes of squeezing out a playable 30 frames per second. Even then, it barely manages to maintain that 30 fps for most of the game and frequently dips into the mid to low 20s.
