Steam Deck adds dynamic cloud sync for seamless save transfers across all devices

Valve’s much-anticipated handheld, the Steam Deck, is about to release. A formidable competitor to the Nintendo Switch, the Steam Deck has powerful technology, including an AMD processor, LCD screen, and a dock to which you can attach a monitor, controller, mouse, and keyboard. Additionally, Valve is adding a “Dynamic Cloud Sync” – a component that enables seamless save transfers.

according to European players, Dynamic Cloud Sync means players don’t have to quit their favorite PC game on Steam to play it on other devices.One Official blog post This is explained in more detail:

“We expect users to frequently pause their Steam platform without exiting the game, which is common with other handheld gaming devices. With Dynamic Cloud Sync, if they then choose to play on another device (whether PC or other Steam platform), their progress will be waiting for them there.

With Dynamic Cloud Sync, Steam automatically uploads any modified save game data to the cloud before the device goes into sleep mode. Users can then continue their game on any PC, laptop or other device. Steam will also automatically download any saved game changes when the user returns to the Steam platform and wakes the device. “

If Dynamic Cloud Sync is disabled on your Steam platform, you will be prompted to shut down the game completely if you try to access it elsewhere. So, to save time, it’s best to leave it on. Plus, who doesn’t want to jump right back into action anytime, anywhere?

If you’re not familiar with other features of the Steam platform, an old press release states:

“Steam Deck is a powerful all-in-one portable PC. With a custom processor developed in partnership with AMD, Steam Deck is comparable to a gaming laptop capable of running the latest AAA games. Your Steam library will be on Deck “anytime, anywhere” play games. Steam Deck is also an open PC with the added ability to install any software or connect any hardware. “

Steam Deck is scheduled to be released in February 2022. If you’re one of the lucky ones who already pre-ordered your handheld, get a fresh look at which PC games you should download first.
