How to play Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) with a controller on a PC
Well, the first thing you need to have to play any game with a controller on a PC is controller support. Controller support signifies that the game is compatible with a controller and you wouldn’t face any trouble connecting a controller to your system and playing the game through it. However, two types of controller support are available on PC. The first type is known as the full controller support where there are fewer compatibility issues you can use your controller to full capacity when playing games.
The second type is partial controller support which comes with Elder Scrolls Online. There can be some compatibility issues and some functions might be missing, but it is still playable. To enable controller input in the game, go to the main menu of the game and open the settings, you will see an option called “Gameplay”. Under the gameplay settings, you just need to turn on the “Gamepad (Beta)” option. Now, you just need to plug in your controller or if it is already plugged in, you will see a change in the UI and the FOV of the game.
So, now you are done with the complication steps. On this note, we hope that you will enjoy ESO with a controller. Even though Steam says the controller support is partial in the game, all the functions work fine. Also, do not forget to visit Androidgram for the latest updates in the world of tech and gaming.
