How to use an Xbox One controller on your PC


Want to play Watch Dogs, with better graphics – or perhaps GTA5 with a mod? Then you’ll want to play the PC releases. But what about controls? The good news is if you’ve got an Xbox One controller, making it work with your PC is a piece of cake.


All you have to do is plug in your controller to your PC via USB, and then download and install these drivers.

Once the drivers are installed, it will treat your controller exactly like an Xbox 360 controller – so any game that is compatible with that, will also work perfectly with your One controller.

Note: Sadly, you’ll have to remain connected via USB to play – Microsoft doesn’t appear to have released a wireless dongle for Xbox One yet.
