Forspoken is now available on PC through Steam and the Epic Games Store. This is Luminous Production’s latest action RPG and is published by Square Enix. The PC version is pretty demanding but runs well if you have a decent system. Some users have reported a few technical problems, though, and if you’re running into any Forspoken controller issues, here is how you can fix those.

Fixing Forspoken Controller Issue

Some users have reported that they can’t seem to get their controllers to work properly while playing Forspoken. This is likely due to a conflict caused by the game’s native controller profiles with Steam Input. Thankfully, you can address that by disabling it. To do this, follow the steps below.

Disable Steam Input

  • Make sure the game isn’t running
  • Open Steam and then open your Library
  • Here, right-click on the Forspoken
  • Select Properties
Steam library > Properties
  • Now, select CONTROLLER at the left
  • Click the dropdown icon next to OVERRIDE FOR FORSPOKEN
  • Set it to “Disable Steam Input
Steam library > Forspoken > Properties > Controller > Disable Steam Input
Disable Steam Input

Launch the game again, and see if that fixes the problem for you, especially if you’re using an Xbox controller.

PlayStation Users PSA: Use a Wired Connection

If you’re using a Dual Shock 4 or DualSense controller, you need to use a wired connection to get things running properly. If you want to use Forspoken’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback features on the DualSense, please ensure you’re using a wired connection.

Check Detected Controllers (Steam)

If nothing is working, you might want to double-check if your controllers are even being detected. To do this in Steam, follow the steps below.

  • Click on Steam at the top left corner of the client, and select Settings
Launch Steam > Click on top left > Steam > Settings
Steam Settings
  • Now, click on Controller in the list at the left
  • Here, click on General Controller Settings
General Controller Settings
  • Any controllers you have plugged in will show up under Detected Controllers
General Controller Settings > Detected Controllers
