Forza Horizon 4 has surged in popularity on the Steam Deck, entering the top 10 most-played games on the platform. This rise follows the announcement of the game’s upcoming delisting and a significant price reduction during the ongoing Steam Summer Sale.

Valve’s recent addition of a dedicated ‘Steam Deck Top Played’ page on the Steam store has highlighted the game’s newfound popularity. While the Steam Summer Sale has driven interest in many older titles, Forza Horizon 4’s ascent is particularly notable given it is not the latest installment in the Forza series.

Just days ago, Forza Horizon 4 was discounted by 80% to kick off the Steam Summer Sale. This discount closely followed the announcement that the game will be removed from Steam in December. The prospect of owning the game before its removal has prompted many to purchase it during the sale. Forza Horizon 4 currently holds the 9th spot on the Steam Deck top 10 list. Although it is not Steam Deck Verified, it is rated as ‘Playable’ and has proven to be an excellent choice for the device.

Despite not having full verification from Valve, Forza Horizon 4 has received positive feedback from the gaming community, particularly on ProtonDB, where users have confirmed its smooth performance on the Steam Deck. The game’s rise in the rankings indicates strong user satisfaction.

Racing games, typically designed for controllers or steering wheels, are well-suited for the Steam Deck. With its unprecedented low price, Forza Horizon 4 presents a valuable opportunity for racing enthusiasts and those looking to expand their game library on the handheld device. Additionally, the appeal is bolstered by the fact that Forza Horizon 5, while also discounted, remains more expensive than its predecessor.

The Steam Summer Sale runs until July 11, offering a limited window for gamers to purchase Forza Horizon 4 at its current discounted rate. Given the impending delisting and the game’s excellent fit for the Steam Deck, now is the perfect time for racing game fans to make their purchase.
