Can you play New World with control? New World has been out for some time now and has been the talk of the world passionate gamer community created by Amazon for some time now, since its beta was released and now with its final version now available on PC and one of the biggest changes in the world. MMO formula incorporated in New World is that instead of the old “point, click and watch” formula of attacks that happen in games like Diablo, for example, we are now having an MMO with full combat in action similar to something you can see in Dragon Age: Inquisition or Dark Souls.

These games, having a console version by default, come with full controller compatibility, something not all PC games have, as they are designed for mouse and keyboard gaming. This is a discussion about which is better, keyboard and mouse or controller, old and, there is no winner but personal preferences. With this, however, the question arises as to whether or not New World will be supported for controls or it will only work with mouse and keyboard.

If you want to know, keep reading because here's everything you need to know about support for controls in New World.

Are controls supported in New World on PC?

Now the answer is no. The developers said months ago in March that controllers would be supported at the full release of the game. Since then, however, these statements have been totally forgotten and withdrawn (as well as the case of server switching) as it seems they haven't figured out a way to fully optimize the game to fit a limited number of buttons.

So technically, the game doesn't support controls at this time BUT the developers mentioned that the game entries can all be remapped any way you want and would work perfectly with other control devices. This means that if you are used to playing PC games with a controller, you can map everything to the device if you like.

If you don't want to map every button on a Control, you can count on one of the many different third-party software out there. Normally, when you download one of these, the buttons will be mapped automatically and, from there, you can adjust what you want so that it works well within the game structure.

Although the controls are not currently supported, it seems that the developers have at least considered this, so it is quite possible that this will be added in a future update. At the moment, however, the game does not officially support the controls, so those looking for some tactile feedback and the like to accompany their experience will have to look it up on their own and just hope it maps correctly to their control.

  • Launch Steam's Big Picture mode by clicking its icon in the upper right corner of the Steam window.
  • When in Big Picture mode, click the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen to open the settings.
  • From there, go to Control Settings and you can see checkboxes for all Control setup support.
  • Check the checkbox for Xbox, PlayStation and Generic Gamepad Setup Support to enable it.

What controls can you use?

Os controls do Xbox e PlayStation should work without problems in New World. Other gamepads that use similar button settings should also work.

How to Remap Your Control

You can change and remap your Control by accessing the Steam Control Setup in Big Picture mode. To open the Control configuration and remap the buttons:

  • Launch Steam's Big Picture mode by clicking its icon in the upper right corner of the Steam window.
  • When in Big Picture mode, click the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen to open the settings.

  • In Control configuration, select “Browse Config”.
  • Go to Templates tab
  • Select the keyboard (WASD) and mouse configuration.
  • And click on "Apply settings"

Control Limitations

Using a control on the PC via this method of remapping, there is no Target Assist. Since there is no “Aim Assist” in the game, aiming with a bow or musket is more difficult on a Control. You can fix this by adjusting the camera sensitivity in the game settings, but it still won't be ideal for good gameplay with these weapons. Use only if you are using a "melee" type weapon to play, as you will have more chance of success in combat.

Also, menu navigation is not supported. While it is possible, navigating the main menu is not ideal when using the Control. It's going to be difficult for you to tweak some game settings, and if you change something, you may still have to go back and reconfigure all the keys on the controller, depending on what you do. To solve this, just use the mouse and keyboard if you are accessing the game's main menu.

Tips for using Control in New World

  • Many issues can be fixed by setting the game's keyboard shortcuts to 'default' before using the configuration.
  • Try a different controller because Steam does not work with all controls and some controls may be worn out, resulting in issues.
  • Restart game or controller. The old “off and on” method seems to work here every now and then!
  • When possible, use the right joystick and right trigger as a functional mouse in submenus.
  • To connect your controller, try using only Bluetooth or an approved wireless adapter.
  • Before starting the game, go to the Steam Big Picture mode settings and enable support for the controller you want to use.
  • To prevent the controls from acting strangely, update the firmware on your joystick.
  • To overcome the Aim Assist issue, players can try changing the camera sensitivity by accessing the game settings. Adjusting the camera's sensitivity to your situation can help you aim well with a bow or musket.
  • Players must use the mouse and keyboard to access the main menu during gameplay, as accessing them while using the controller can cause problems.
