Based on my testing, Gangs of Sherwood natively supports the Xbox controller with proper button prompts. It doesn’t have native support for PlayStation controllers like the Dual Shock 4, or the Dualsense, which is why you need to enable Steam Input.


Enable Steam Input

  • Make sure the game isn’t running
  • Open Steam and then open your Library
  • Here, right-click on the Gangs of Sherwood
  • Select Properties

Despite multiple improvements in how PlayStation controllers work on Steam, you still need to use a wired connection to get Dual Shock 4 and Dualsense running, even with Steam Input.

  • Click on Steam at the top left corner of the client, and select Settings
Steam > Settings
  • Now, click on Controller in the list at the left
  • Your connected controllers will show up under “Controller” as shown below.
