Steam’s Client Beta has been updated with extended support for four Xbox controllers, which includes rumble and key binding on Xbox Elite and Xbox Series X gamepads.
The client has been freshly updated with the extended support, and players can find the option to enable it in Options>General Controller Setting.
It is worth nothing, that this will require you to install drivers and restart your machine.
Steam’s extended Xbox controller support adds the following:
- Support for more than 4 Xbox controllers
- The ability to bind the Xbox Elite controller paddles in controller configurations
- The ability to bind the Xbox Series X controller share button in controller configurations
- Support for trigger rumble in games using Windows.Gaming.Input API
This should be great news for players who like Microsoft’s bigger controllers but PlayStation 5 owners have not been left in the cold, as Steam’s update allows players to enable or disable the controller LEDs on PlayStation 5’s DualSense controllers. The default will be to keep the LED off until multiple PS5 controllers are connected.
