Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, one of EA’s most anticipated games for 2023, offers all players an immersive single-player experience in the Star Wars universe. The game will be released on limited platforms to ensure significant improvements on the experience brought to us in the first installment of the Star Wars Jedi series: Fallen Order. 

EA released the game on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. In this post today, we cover the question that only PC players have been asking, and that is: does Star Wars Jedi: Survivor have controller support? 

With the rise in PC gamers using controllers and more and more developers recommending the use of controllers for the best experience, it’s no wonder why this question is one of the most frequently asked and common amongst fans and players alike. 

Does Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Have Controller Support on PC?

The answer to this is a happy yes! Yes, the latest Star Wars title, Jedi Survivor, has controller support for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S controllers. Sadly, the only downfall and not-so-good news to follow this is that it does not support haptics. 

As of now, with the PS5, haptic feedback has become a massive part of the game and the gaming experience. It’s as if we’ve gone too far with it, and there’s no turning back to the “good ol’ days”.

Also, with the experience enhanced by Fallen Order when it was released with haptics for the PS5 version, it almost feels like a sin not to have it for the sequel. It made you feel even more like you were one with the lightsaber and Cal.

It does improve the experience, and it does eat the battery power up of the controller quickly. It’s a win-lose situation, but a loss I’m willing to take with every new title on PlayStation 5. So if you want the best experience, getting the game on PS5 is the best route.

Nonetheless, PC players who enjoy the feel of console controls in their hands and are fans of the game and Star Wars will be able to use a controller for what’s to come on April 28. If you were interested in finding out if it’s worth the fuss to get the deluxe edition, you can read: Is the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Deluxe Edition Worth It?
