The Armored Core 6 Steam file size is around 45 GB.

Armored Core 6’s game director, Masaru Yamamura, confirmed this in an interview with Digital Trends, “Obviously seeing how well Elden Ring performed on the Steam Deck, we were very happy, and we wanted to at least create that as a baseline going forward for this handheld. So it is fully supported for Steam Deck … we just want to reassure players that it will be fully supported.”

If you check the list of all games that have received a “verified” mark from Valve, you’ll find Elden Ring and some Dark Souls games mentioned. A verified badge means the game runs extremely well on Steam Deck.
