Can you play Diablo Immortal with a controller?

The original Diablo games were some of the most iconic PC games of their time. Diablo 2 in particular was perhaps one of the most popular PC games ever, and for years players assumed the series would forever be locked to the PC platform. However, starting with Diablo 3, console players were finally allowed to join in on the dungeon-crawling, action-RPG fun with full controller support. Questions arose again when Diablo Immortal was announced as a mobile exclusive, and then later confirmed to be coming to PC.

While PC players have no concerns about control inputs, even the most dedicated mobile players can admit that touch controls are not the ideal way to game on your phone. In recent years, mobile games have reached the point where they are essentially on par with console and PC experiences, and that includes Diablo Immortal. Touch controls, however, come with a lot of drawbacks, leading to most games allowing players to connect a controller for a smoother gameplay experience. Does Diablo Immortal allow you to link up your preferred controller to take on the mobs of evil minions? We have the answer.

Yes, you can play Diablo Immortal with a controller on both mobile and PC if you so choose. Even better, the game will fully map and configure your controller automatically as long as you have it connected before booting the game up. However, you are still also able to go in and remap any button however you wish if you want to fully customize your controller layout to fit your own preferences. This is a fantastic option to make playing on mobile easier, giving you more precision while making the game easier to see by keeping your hands and UI off the screen.
