If you’ve been toying with the idea of getting some new games for your Steam Deck, then you’re in for a treat. This is because Fanatical has launched a new build-your-own bundle, thanks to which you can grab 16 games for a small price. All 16 of them run well on the Steam Deck, as they are either ‘Verified’ or ‘Playable’. The only catch though is that this bundle is not available directly through Steam, but we can work around that.

We’ve seen a lot of Steam Deck-friendly bundles as of late, including a similar build-your-own-bundle from Fanatical. Now that the Steam Summer Sale is live and the Steam Deck is at its lowest price ever, it’s the perfect time to pick one up.

What does the Bethesda bundle offer?

As its name already suggests, this build-your-own bundle from Fanatical features 16 titles from Bethesda, including many iconic or classic games. The total price, of course, will depend on how many games you select. You can buy two games for $7, three for $10, and five for $15. After that, each game will cost an additional $3. If you decide to purchase the entire collection, it will cost you $48. As the original value of these games is more than $340 combined, you’re saving over $285 through this offer.

Here’s the full list of games along with their Steam Deck status:

Game NameSteam Deck Status
Dishonored: Death of the OutsiderVerified 
Wolfenstein II: The New ColossusVerified 
Dishonored 2Playable
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Verified 
Dishonored: Definitive Edition Verified 
Wolfenstein II: The New OrderVerified 
The Evil WithinVerified 
The Evil Within 2Verified 
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition DeluxePlayable
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year EditionPlayable
Quake IIPlayable
Quake IIIPlayable
Quake 4Playable
DOOM 3Playable

If you don’t already know, Verified means that the game will run smoothly on Steam Deck, and you won’t have to tweak any settings to improve its performance. On the other hand, if a game is Playable, it means you will have to play around with the settings to optimize performance. It is, however, important to remember that the games you’ll purchase from Fanatical are a part of GOG and not Steam. So, you’ll need to use an external launcher like Heroic or Lutris to play them.

Are there any good games?

The Bethesda bundle is filled with plenty of exciting games. For instance, both parts of the The Evil Within series. In them, you play as Sebastian Castellanos and your goal is to survive against deadly creatures while relying on limited resources. The first part will keep you engaged for around 16 hours, while it will take you around 14 hours to finish The Evil Within 2.

Quake, DOOM, or Wolfenstein games are also worth trying, especially if you’re a fan of action-packed FPS. If you want the perfect blend of stealth and violence, you can dive into the Dishonored series. Finally, The Elder Scrolls is a huge series and this bundle gives you a chance to play some of the older titles like Oblivion and Morrowind.
