The movie ‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace’ popularized pod racing as a concept way back in 1999. Albeit fictional, it’s a pretty dangerous sport involving a vehicle comprising a driver’s cabin or ‘pod’ attached to the engine(s). The vehicle, or ‘Podracer’ moves at extremely high speeds on a treacherous track, with the ultimate goal of completing a set number of laps before everyone else. Due to various factors like the terrain, track layout, tricks played by your opponents, and so on, achieving this goal often involves more than just a good podracer. It requires skill. The game Deathgrip will emulate pod-racing pretty well, so to win it, you are going to need skill as well. For that, though, you also need a good controller or wheel to control your pod. So, what are the supported controllers and wheels in Deathgrip? If you are interested in knowing the same, consider reading this guide.
Deathgrip is a sci-fi-based racing game that is yet to be released. It focuses on emulating what is basically pod racing from Star Wars. Your goal is obviously to be in the first place, for which you will need to be more than just a pod racer with good skills. You will need quick wits, skill, and good decision-making to be effective. However, all of this is no good if you do not have a good controller or wheel to make your racer do what you want. So keep reading this guide until the end to find out which controllers and wheels will be supported in Deathgrip.
Deathgrip game Supported Controllers & Wheels list
The developers have said in the FAQ on their website that, as of right now, they are focusing solely on mice, keyboards, and gamepad controls, and there is currently no list of supported controllers available. This means the only supported input methods upon early access release will be the most common inputs like keyboards, mouse, PS4/PS5 controllers, and Xbox controllers. However, do not give up hope for other controllers and wheels just yet. They have also specified that they will circle back to the more uncommon controllers later on during early access. Another exciting feature that the developers will be looking into is the ability to control both engines of the pod racer using dual sticks. This is certainly quite intriguing, as it will allow for greater maneuverability and finer control over the vehicle.
There is currently a demo available for the game on Steam, so you might want to get yourself acquainted with standard mouse+keyboard or gamepad controls. Support for generic controllers and wheels will probably take some time; after the game is released for early access. In the meantime, though, check out Android Gram for more such guides.
