Dock your Deck and connect all sorts of peripherals.
Steam Deck Docking Station

Though the Steam Deck itself has been up for order for quite some time now, the Docking Station was nowhere to be seen. Valve pushed back the release of the Dock for quite a while, but that wait is finally over. If you have a Steam Deck already, or are planning to get one in the near future, you can now also purchase the Steam Deck Docking Station for $89.00 (USD).

The Docking Station includes a number of different ports so that when you connect you Deck to it, you can also plug in things like peripherals, monitors, even Gigabit networking. Valve says that you can connect your Deck, through the Dock, to up to two external displays.

Those looking to pick one up right now can purchase it through Steam. The estimated delivery for the Dock is said to be 1-2 weeks.

Beyond the new availability of the Docking Station, Valve also provided some good news about Steam Deck availability, news about reservations opening in a number of regions in Asia, and some highlights of major updates that they have released for the Steam Deck over the prior months.

First off, Valve says that they have now completed their entire reservation queue as of today! That means the the Steam Deck is now in-stock and can just be purchased immediately. This news comes over a year since the Steam Deck was announced. Up until very recently, Valve (like most companies) have been dealing with massive supply chain issues. Thanks to Valve working on fixing these issues, they were able to catch up to the demand.

That said, Valve does state that if the order volume for a specific Steam Deck model grows too high they may have to go back to the reservation system until they are able to catch up again.

For those living in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, you will be happy to hear that reservations just opened up for the Steam Deck. You can reserve your Deck via Komodo, Valve's distribution partner in those regions.

Finally, Valve outlined some of the cool new features that have been added recently to the Steam Deck over the previous few months. A look at some of those highlights can be found below.

User interface and experience improvements
We've improved the in-game experience by adding quick links to Achievements and Guides to the overlay. The media page where screenshots are stored has been redesigned and improved to be much more performant. Night mode can now be automatically scheduled to turn on and off at different times of the day. And Offline Mode has undergone a series of improvements to make it much more stable and intuitive to use.

New Steam Input features
In addition to a slew of bug fixes and UI improvements, Mode Shifts are now supported, and Steam Input virtual menus have been completely refreshed and redesigned. Now you can name virtual menus, move them between different sources, and have more control over icons and colors.

More keyboards and improved experience
To prepare for our launch in new regions, we've added on-screen keyboard support for Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. In addition, there have been big improvements to touchscreen and trackpad on-screen keyboard typing and responsiveness - both in Gaming mode and Desktop mode.

System updates
SteamOS, drivers, and firmware have all been updated to improve performance and stability across Steam Deck. In addition, to help folks keep track of system updates and betas (if you choose to participate in testing), we've added new, simpler update channels – Stable, Beta, and Preview.

Docked mode overhaul
We've been focused on a bunch of UI, software, and OS updates to improve the docked experience - not only for the official Docking Station, but for all connected docks, hubs, and peripherals. The team has added scaling, resolution, and refresh rate settings for external displays, as well as broad compatibility for external displays, peripherals, and audio-out scenarios.​
