One of the most highly requested features has finally arrived in Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem. Patch adds controller support to this epic action RPG.

While you can now use gamepads in Patch, the feature is quite limited at the moment; only Xbox controllers are fully supported in Wolcen. The developers said that other gamepads could potentially work with Steam’s controller configuration options, but your mileage may vary.

Furthermore, there’s no option to rebind the actions on the controller. Speaking of which, you can find the default button mapping below:

The Left Trigger on the Xbox controller is for the targeting system. Pressing this button is supposed to automatically target the enemy closest to you. According to a Redditor, however, target locking when using a gamepad doesn’t do anything, with or without enemies on the screen. Hopefully, this gets fixed as soon as possible.

The developers also implemented a fresh new UI in this update to accommodate controller support and improve the user experience. Here are the other changes brought by Patch

New UI Elements
  • Character Sheet.
  • Two versions of the Player Inventory: one dedicated to keyboard and mouse, and one to controller use. Which UI is visible depends on which input method you are using at that time.
  • Player’s Storage Chest.
  • Player Cosmetics: dyes, armor skins, and pets.
  • Item Tooltips.
  • Loot Filter.
  • Merchant Screens.
  • A series of Navigation Menus to change screens when using a controller.
  • Main Menu.
  • Options Menu.
Quality-of-Life Changes
  • Armor skins, dyes, and pets are now integrated into one menu for easy access.
  • The Character Information Screen has been retooled to present more information at a glance within clearly defined categories. Additionally, the Character Information Sheet now automatically opens alongside the Inventory so you can easily track stat changes as you change gear.
  • Auto Sort buttons have been added to the player inventory and storage chests. Pressing the button will automatically organize your inventory or specific storage page.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a Skill issue where the "Erupting Flesh" Active Skill Modifier for Plagueburst would not correctly increase the skill's damage.
  • Fixed a UI issue where clicking on Zanafer Stark whilst her shop UI is open would cause the current tab to empty.
  • Fixed an Item issue where bows were treated as Offhands instead of Weapons when comparing items.
  • Fixed a UI issue in multiplayer where the "Return to Last Checkpoint" button would briefly disappear for all players after one player had pressed it.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem Patch is available on PC.
