Here is a problem concerning PC users. Will there be a controller support in BG3. Because the PC version can only be played with keyboard / mouse.

Baldur’s Gate 3 Stadia version had perfect controller support. However, Google shut down Stadia simply because it was no longer profitable. What a bummer… At least there are alternative cloud gaming platforms.

Divinity Original Sin 2 have perfect controller support. It is created by the developers of BG3, Larian Studios. Both games are turn-based isometric RPGs. So, it is easy to assume that Baldur’s Gate 3 will have full controller support in the future. Only question is when? Probably in 2023, with the full release.

As stated before, Stadia version had controller support with beta UI. Since Stadia gets shut down, perhaps Larian Studios will import this controller support feature to the PC version with the latest update. Let’s hope so, fingers crossed.

The thing is you can play Baldur’s Gate 3 with steam controller gamepad. But it is not working perfectly so far. You can assign key-bindings, etc. However, BG3 UI is made for mouse / keyboard. To play with controller smoothly, Larian Studios must add a new patch with controller friendly UI option.

BG3 Steam Controller

Welcome to my Baldur’s Gate 3 steam controller guide. You can play Baldur’s Gate 3 with steam controller, here is how: First, launch Steam on big picture mode. Go to library, select Baldur’s Gate 3, and manage game. In controller application options, choose forced on.

Then go to controller configuration and make your own mapping (key-binding) according to your playstyle. There are also pre-made configs made by users in the community tab. You can try them if you don’t want to bother creating your own key-bindings.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available on Steam Deck. The deck gets pretty hot though. Also make sure to use DirectX 11 version of Baldur’s Gate 3. Because Vulkan have some graphical problems at the moment.

Don’t like either of them? You can always wait for Baldur’s Gate 3 PS5 version or Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox Series release.

Is steam controller v2 coming any time soon? Well, I can’t wait for steam controller 2.0 release. Wonder if it will ever happen. But there is a good chance that it will because of the Steam Deck developments.
