Albion Online now testing gamepad support and ready for Steam Deck

By - | Views: 7,707

If you need another MMO fix in your life, Albion Online is pretty good and has a lot of players. It's available as a direct standalone download and on Steam. Looks like it might end up quite good on the Steam Deck.

Coming along with their latest patch that also started Season 15 plenty of other tweaks were done including automatic silver pickup, tweaks to randomized dungeons, combat balance changes and various other adjustments. The big one is of course the new gamepad support, which isn't quite finished yet.

On a Steam Deck it's automatic, but for the standalone and desktop PCs you need to enter a chat command of "#controller on" or "#controller off" to hook it up for now. More info in this post.

Here's a test to see how it works:

Looks good, but i still think they should have gone for a WASD type of navigation instead of point and click.. sort of like torchlight. Then it will fit better with the gamepad controls..
