As revealed on Friday, June 6, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has announced official Xbox One controller supported drivers for the PC, an unveiling that’ll finally allow for PC gamers to use the Xbox One’s controller when playing their PC games.
According to Major Nelson, Microsoft is planning on releasing the drivers as part of a Windows update in the near future. However, if you want to get your hands on the drivers now, he has provided “early access” links to the dedicated PC gamers on MajorNelson.com.
“We know our fans have wanted PC compatibility, and we know they wanted to be able to use the Xbox One controller with the same games and applications they have been playing with using the Xbox 360 controller,” Major Nelson wrote in his announcement.
“We can’t wait for them to play their favorite PC games with what we consider the best controller ever made and we’re excited for fans to experience the improved D-pad, redesigned battery compartment, new comfortable design and offset analog sticks,” he continued.
“The new PC drivers will enable the Xbox One controller to be used with any game that featured gamepad support for the Xbox 360 controller,” he added. “Simply download the drivers, connect your Xbox One controller to your computer through a micro USB cable and you’ll be gaming in no time.”
There are two early access PC drivers available to download via the source link below--86-bit and 64-bit respectively.
