Open-world RPG games are quite popular, and with Wartales being released globally out of early access, fans have been spending countless hours into the game, mastering its mechanics, and figuring out strategies on how to win battles in the most efficient ways. One of the main features of this title is the implementation of a 4-player co-op mode that lets players experience the medieval world alongside their friends and progress further. Although the majority player base is satisfied with the global release, some are disappointed at the fact that the devs didn’t include controller support in their title. This has been a concern for many, and players are wondering if controller support is even planned for Wartales. If you are looking for more information on the same, consider reading till the end.
Controllers are the primary input scheme for consoles, but they aren’t restricted to the console platform only. PC gaming has always been inclined toward the use of a keyboard+mouse for inputs, however, times have changed now. A lot of PC players prefer to play games on their system using a controller, rather than the keyboard and mouse setup. Well, there are various advantages to it, but the issue here is that not all PC games support controller inputs. Due to this, players are left with no choice but to use their keyboard/mouse to continue playing a game they like, even when they are more comfortable with controllers. The same has been the case with Wartales players, as the game still doesn’t offer controller support on PC.

Wartales Controller Support not yet released, fans are disappointed
As the game was in early access since Dec 2021, fans expected that the global release would be more feature-rich. Well, the 1.0 release featured a ton of new content, including a new region, plenty of balancing changes, bug fixes, and more, but one feature that many were hoping for didn’t make it to the final release, and that is none other than controller support. Yes, controller support is not available in Wartales. Although Shiro Games(developers) usually take in community requests and release updates for their game favoring those requests, it was quite a shock for many that they didn’t include controller support in their title, even after they stated that controller support is planned.
Back in May 2022, one of the developers at Shiro Games responded to a post by a fellow gamer stating that they have planned to include controller support in Wartales, and it would eventually be released in the upcoming community updates. Unfortunately, since then, no further updates were given, and now that the game is out of early access, fans are hopeful yet disappointed at the devs for not adding this feature. Also, as Steam Deck is now released, any game that doesn’t feature controller support cannot be efficiently played on the handheld console. So, even if Wartales runs on a Steam Deck, you cannot use the regular controller layout, and have to resort to the trackpads to navigate. This is ofcourse not an optimal experience.
For these reasons, it is quite important for Shiro Games to implement full controller support for their game before it’s too late. However, there is no official information on anything related to it, so all we can do right now is wait. We will surely update this article with more details once we fetch it.
