South Park: Snow Day! Performs great on the Steam Deck, averaging 50-60 FPS even with everything set to the High preset.
Although the game runs decently on Ultra settings, the jump in visual quality does not justify the significant dip in frame rates.

South Park: Snow Day! Charts a new course for the franchise by introducing third-person hack-and-slash gameplay and emphasizing co-op as one of its core elements. The game has been available on all major platforms like the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

Considering its availability on Valve’s platform, many gamers are curious about the game’s compatibility with the Steam Deck. We are happy to report that South Park: Snow Day! runs great on the handheld console, thanks to its hardware capabilities and the game’s relatively low system requirements. Here are the best graphical presets for an immersive gameplay experience on the Deck.

Best Settings for South Park: Snow Day! on the Steam Deck

As mentioned above, South Park: Snow Day! seems to perform great on Valve’s Steam Deck regardless of being marked as “Unknown” in the list of Steam Deck Verified games. We can certainly expect the game to reach the “Playable” or a higher rating soon, as it produces average frame rates of 50-60 FPS even on the “High” preset. Here are the best settings:


  • Display Mode: Windowed Fullscreen

  • Resolution: 1280 x 800

  • Resolution Scale: 90

  • Field of View: 90

  • Brightness: (does not affect performance)


  • Texture Detail: High

  • Shadow Quality: Medium

  • Volumetric Lighting: Medium

  • Anti-Aliasing Quality: Medium

  • Motion Blur: Off

  • V-Sync: Off

  • Frame Smoothing: Off

The aforementioned settings will ensure that the game runs smoothly, averaging around 60-65 FPS while exploring different areas. Even during intense combat, these presets will make sure that the game does not drop below 50 FPS, prioritizing performance over visual fidelity. If you wish for more consistent frame rates, you can lock the game to run at 60FPS using the Steam Deck’s settings.

However, if you do not mind running the game on sub-40 FPS with dips to 30, you can crank the textures to Ultra and set everything else to the High preset. Additionally, you can also increase your Resolution Scaling to 100% to run the game at a native resolution on the Deck. While this does enhance the graphical quality, the trade-off in frame rates does not justify the minor visual improvements.
