XCOM 2 Gets Native Steam Controller Integration

By Rebecca Smith, 10 months ago
We’re excited to announce that Firaxis and Valve are collaborating on native integration for the Steam Controller, and we can’t wait for fans to get early access to it starting today.

XCOM 2's native integration allows the player to do the following with the Steam Controller:

• Use a different control scheme based on the in-game situation.
• Experience precise and responsive 1:1 camera controls using the touchpads in the Geoscape and the Tactical view.
• Instantly select your ability with the flexibility of the controller's Touch Menus.

We consider this configuration to be an initial implementation, and as always, we hope the community will provide feedback in addition to making improvements to the configuration on their own.

For a limited time, the Steam Controller is available bundled with XCOM 2 at a 40% discount! Customers that have already pre-ordered XCOM 2 through Steam can still benefit from the discount on the controller if they purchase it separately.
