XCOM 2 on PC now with controller support

XCOM 2 on PC now with controller support

Firaxis will now let you play XCOM 2 on your PC with a controller from today.

There can be only one reason to add this and that’s so you can play it on your TV without a keyboard and mouse. I can’t think of any other reason for adding this. This patch 7 update also comes with a few fixes and it’s available now on Steam

  • Adds traditional (non-Steam Controller) controller support to the PC
  • Fix config/upk file issues that prevent full conversion mods from being possible on the Steam Workshop and also allow mods to have Bink files.
  • In Alien Hunters, the “Ruler Reaction” notification will stay on the screen after a unit fires at the Archon King while he is using Icarus Drop during combat.
  • SPARKS cannot be healed by Medikits
  • Additional minor bug fixes

The controller layout looks like this…
