No gamepad support for Mass Effect 3 PC, says BioWare

BioWare has said it won’t support gamepads for the PC version of Mass Effect 3.

Community manager Chris Priestly confirmed the news on the company’s forums, meaning controllers such as a plugged-in Xbox 360 PC controller will not do the trick. It’s all keyboard and mouse, gringo.

“The PC version does not support controllers,” said Priestly. “They may or may not work, but they are unsupported by the game.”

This isn’t the biggest shocker in the world, mind: there was also no such support for Mass Effect 1 and 2, as well as Dragon Age: Origins, DAII and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Mass Effect 3 launches on March 6 in the US and March 9 in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.
