Stunlock Studios have revealed quite a lot of their plans for V Rising, the popular open-world vampire survival game.
A game that can run well enough on Steam Deck and Linux desktops with the Proton compatibility layer. However, a sore spot for Steam Deck players is that there's no controller support and playing it on Deck can be a bit of a hassle. The good news is that's going to change!
In their "Dev Update #15: Future Visions" post along with many other gameplay improvements coming, this was mentioned:
Players might also be happy to know that we’re looking into adding controller support, and we’re increasingly confident that it’s something that will be possible for us. This would be a major step in the direction of being able to port to consoles and other platforms, as well as offer better support for Steamdeck.
Nice to see more developers paying attention!
