Dead Island 2 is now available on PC, and the reception has been quite positive so far. The PC port runs well, and doesn’t have many technical problems apart from some co-op disconnections. This is an Epic exclusive title, so you’re not going to get a few Steam features. If you’re running into any Dead Island 2 controller issues, here is how you can fix those.
Fixing Dead Island 2 Controller Issues
Some users have reported that they can’t get their controllers to work with Dead Island 2, especially Dualshock 4 or DualSense controllers. Dead Island 2 officially supports a wide variety of controllers with native profiles.
Used a Wired Connection
If you’re using a DualShock 4 or DualSense controller, using a wired connection is recommended. These controllers still don’t have proper native support wirelessly, so to get these running on Dead Island 2, you need to plug these in directly.
Plug-In One Controller at a Time
Having one controller plugged in while you play is also a good idea. Multiple controllers can cause interference, so ensure you have only one controller plugged in at a time. Remove other possible controller devices too, like HOTAS, etc.
