Official Dark Souls 3 Steam Controller config offers a very strange way of playing it

Valve has released an official Dark Souls 3 Steam Controller configuration for anyone to use. As with all games that support the controller, you can create your own configuration or use community-made ones.

This one in particular was made with Dark Souls 3 in mind, and it offers a mix of mouse (for camera) and analogue stick (for movement) input, making for a bizarre combo that aims to prioritise turning speed, something that’s not particularity crucial for a Souls game where most of your time will be spent locked onto targets.

But, if you enjoy playing these games with a mouse, this is definitely for you.

Here’s a video detailing what each button does:

If you’re looking to get the controller and the game, you can buy then both in a bundle, saving you $20 off the controller price.
