XCOM 2 is a turn-based action-strategy video game is usually played by using the traditional mouse and keyboard setting, but a huge number of XCOM 2 players have been requesting support for controller gameplay. This not only offers an alternative to standard controls but also gives XCOM developers a chance to show a new perspective of the game and bring forth a new way of playing the XCOM sequel.

The ability to play using a controller was made available in Patch 7 and was carefully crafted so that players would be able to enjoy and use controllers effortlessly, rather than just throwing the option in the game and letting players struggle to use it properly

The game now offers full support for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers, and while controllers from other brands may still work, the success in trying to use one is not guaranteed. Chances are that users will have to manually adjust additional settings within the game if they want to game using a non-Microsoft controller for XCOM 2.

The controller experience can be taken even further with the addition of mods, a popular and permitted habit among XCOM 2 players. There is a mod that allows players to take a tour of the Avenger, your base of operations in game, from a first person perspective.

Fans of the popular turn-based game can only rejoice in receiving the good new as now they can take a more “leaned back” approach, especially if they are more used to playing with controllers.
