Battlefield 1 is coming to the Xbox One and Windows PCs on October 21. Many gamers already got their hands on the game via EA/ Origin Early Access and are already participating in fierce World War 1-style battles.

Battlefield 1 offers an impressive gaming experience, but somehow fans feel the game is incomplete due to its lack of joystick support. Gamers took to the forums and created a dedicated forum thread to let DICE know just how important joystick support is, and it appears their calls have been heard.

This is a complete deal breaker for people that like to fly. Flying a plane with Keyboard and Mouse is nonsense, way to clunky. Using a Gamepad makes it not better ether, because the movement-area of the thumbsticks is way to small.

Why is this for each new Battlefield the same problem? Its known that PC players want to have support for other devices besides Mouse, Keyboard and the Gamepad, coming from the Console-Versions of the game.This issue was known since the Beta version and nothing have been done, very disappointing.

DICE recently confirmed that joystick support would be available in Battlefield 1. However, the company didn’t offer any details as to when this feature will actually become available. Most likely, joystick support will be enabled as soon as the game first patches are rolled out.

This is an excellent piece of news for many gamers who were planning to ask for a refund due to the lack of joystick support. However, DICE warns that not all joysticks will be compatible with Battlefield 1. For the time being, there is no official list of supported joysticks, but we’ll update this article as soon as new information is available.
