Controllers ‘unsupported’ in Mass Effect 3 PC

BioWare’s community manager Chris Priestly has officially put a stake to the heart of hopes that Mass Effect 3 will be the first game in the series to support game controllers on PC.

If you’ll be playing Mass Effect 3 on PC, you’d better be comfortable with a mouse and keyboard. BioWare community manager Chris Priestly responded to requests on the company’s forums with a definitive no to official support for game controllers, though he notes they might work anyway.

“The PC version does not support controllers,” Priestly said (via Eurogamer). “They may or may not work, but they are unsupported by the game.”

On the bright side, if you’re planning on playing Mass Effect 3 on the PC, it’s probably because you played the first two games on the platform as well. Neither officially supported controllers, so this won’t be much of a change for you. If you’re a newcomer thinking about jumping into the PC version for the first time, a demo hit Origin yesterday. You can try it out, if your PC has the required juice, to test the M/KB controls yourself.
