Steamworks Documentation
Steam Deck Developer Kits
We are allocating a portion of our EV2 (engineering verification test build) units for partners to test their titles.

  • Functionally, these units are identical to the Steam Decks that will be shipping to customers later this year.
  • Cosmetically these units will differ a bit from the shipping product, but this shouldn’t impact testing.
  • Software is still in the works, and developer kits will receive updates periodically leading up to launch.

We are building these right now, and quantities will be limited. Once available, partners will be able to request a dev-kit from the partner site hardware request form. We will keep track of all units requested, as more dev kits will be available as we get closer to launch.

More info about the developer kit program coming soon.
