It was bound to happen sooner or later and thankfully it was the former! Windows PC gamers can now rock the Xbox One controller thanks to official drivers released today by Microsoft.
According to Microsoft’s Larry Hryb, the drivers will be published in a future Windows update scheduled for (unsurprisingly) “the near future”. However, good ol’ Major Nelson (Hryb) has made them available on his blog for both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. You can grab them here!
The new PC drivers will enable the Xbox One controller to be used with any game that featured gamepad support for the Xbox 360 controller. Simply download the drivers, connect your Xbox One controller to your computer through a micro USB cable and you’ll be gaming in no time.
There you go PC gamers, proof that Microsoft hasn’t completely forgotten about you!
