Anthem PC and Controller

★★★★ Novice

Forgive me if this has been asked I did a quick search and only saw controls for the PC but not use of a controller for the PC.

Will Anthem support PS4 or XboX controllers and did anyone test this during the Demo?

Same here I used my Xbox controller and M+K both but not the PS4. They worked fine for me I loved how the implemented the vibrations on the controller and it would be my primary form of input but I just don't get the precision that I can with the M+K. I love the fact that it is my choice of which to use.

I used my trusty old wired Xbox 360 controller for both demos and loved it. Games that have flight always feel better with analog controls and the aiming wasn't bad since there is definitely an aim assist associated with using a gamepad.

Really? When my brother tried his PS4 controller, it wouldn't even get detected by the demo at all, the XBOne Controller worked fine.

Origin doesn't detect a PS4 controller like Steam or UPlay, so what you need to do in ds4windows or inputmapper software is to tick the option ON for detect the controller as a xinput device and it will show up as a Xbox controller.

ds4 windows it just emulates an xbox controller, without any mapper or emulator only xbox controllers work as far as i know

Yet, it is coming out on the PS4 as well.......sounds kinda dumb to not have native PS4 Controller support.
