Ubisoft's launcher broke Steam games on Linux and Steam Deck

The Steam Deck has been a huge hit for Valve, opening up the world to PC gaming on a portable console style PC. They’re great little machines that make wonderful travelling companions. Whether you’re headed to a bar or 2,500 ft above the surface of the Earth, the Steam Deck is ready to go. That is, unless you wanted to play some Ubisoft titles.

A new update for the Ubisoft Connect launcher completely stuffed launching Steam games on Linux platforms. According to GamingOnLinux (opens in new tab), trying to launch any Ubi titles on desktop Linux or Steam Deck resulted in an unrecoverable error popup from Ubisoft Connect. From there all you could do is click OK and accept you’re not getting on for that Division raid tonight.
