Steam Games Will Soon Have Controller Support
Those who have been dreaming of using controllers for their Steam games will welcome this good news: all Steam games will now have controller support. The announcement came via the Steam Client Beta Update last Jan. 5.
According to the beta update, it has added configuration support for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Generic X-Input controller. This allows players to map their keyboard and mouse controls to these controllers using the Steam Controller Configurator. With this feature, even games which don't have in-built support will still be able to use controllers.
The update also noted that all X-input controllers will have to share configurations and personalization settings because it currently doesn't have a un ique identification feature for each controller. On the other hand, Xbox 360 and Xbox One generic controllers will be able to access each of their settings while browsing.
With this new additional update, Steam gamers will now have plenty of options when playing their favorite games via the platform. It could be remembered that last October, Jeff Bellinghausen said that they will offer support for DualShock 4 PlayStation 4 controller.
Aside from the controller support, Steam also brought in some fixes and tweaks to make the players' game experience much better. For example, Big Picture users will have improved display quality if they are using retina enabled devices under maCOS. Furthermore, there 's also additional support for using the overlay keyboard for games that have launchers.
For Linux users, Steam applied a fix to the keyboard input and cursor switching in overlay for Vulkan apps. There is also an improved runtime between host distribution libraries and Steam runtime.
These are just some of the fixes Steam has made to the platform. To have a full-detailed information, click the link here.
