FromSoftware's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is finally out, letting players live out a ruthless shinobi fantasy. While it supports keyboard and mouse, players are reporting their DS4 controllers aren't working.
Here's all the information we have on DS4 controllers not working in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
How to Fix DS4 Controllers
DS4 stands for Dual Shock 4, referring to the controller used by the PlayStation 4. One of the first things to do if your DS4 controller isn't working in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is to unplug all other controllers from your PC.
Although quite a few people are having issues with their DS4 controllers not working in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, there currently isn't a universal, guaranteed fix. Neither FromSoftware nor Activision have commented on the issue but, luckily, there are a few makeshift solutions discovered by the community that could help.
Some players have found a fix by installing the DS4Windows software. Doing so, connecting your DS4 controller and ticking the "Hide DS4" setting has reportedly worked for some.
Others had to disable DS4Windows entirely and go through Steam's Big Picture Mode in order to get their DS4 controllers to work. To do so, you need to make sure the Enable PS4 Configuration option under Controllers is turned on. You then need to open your Controller configuration for Sekiro and set the gyro controls to None, as having them turned on seems to mess with the game's camera. If simply turning the gyro controls off proves to not be enough, you might have to change all the options that say "mouse" to "none" or "joystick", wherever the case.
Sadly, there seem to be as many fixes as there are DS4 controllers not working, so if none of the above approaches makes Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice playable with a controller, the best thing to do is either wait for an official fix or dig further through the Steam discussions.
