How to Fix Controller Not Working in Forspoken

There are a few things that you can try to fix your controller not working in Forspoken. First off, if you’re playing wireless, use a cable instead. For some reason, the game doesn’t like if there are no wires involved. Also, be sure to update all of your drivers, since that’s another potential cause for the controller seizing up while playing Forspoken. This is especially true if you’re using Dual Shock 4 or DualSense. If that’s what you’re playing with, then you might also have to disable Steam support for the PlayStation controller. I don’t know why that works, but apparently, it does. For that matter, you might have to disable Steam input entirely, as we’re about to explain. The issues this game has are just so weird, such as the camera spinning uncontrollably.

So, we’ve said that you might fix the Forspoken controller not working issue by disabling the Steam controller input. Here’s how to do that. First off, make sure that you’ve exited the game. Find Forspoken in your library and right-click it, then select Properties. Click on the “Controller” option on the left and select the dropdown menu next to “Override for Forspoken.” Lastly, click “Disable Steam Input.” After you’ve done all that, restart the game and check whether the problem has gone away. Unfortunately, none of these fixes are guaranteed to work. The only true solution can come from the developers. These are just workarounds to tide you over until a patch or hotfix comes out. If you know of any other solutions that we haven’t mentioned, let us know in the comments.
