Today, as part of miHoYo’s latest Genshin Impact “Developers Discussion” series, the team announced controller support for Android and iOS mobile devices is set to be launched as part of the upcoming Version 1.3.
It’s a much-requested feature since Genshin Impact’s launch, with only dubious third-party software making controller support viable up until now. But miHoYo has finally spoken on the topic of official support, explaining in today’s article:
“The developers have heard your cries — from Version 1.3 onwards, devices that have had their operating systems upgraded to iOS 14 or higher will now support the Xbox Wireless Controller (Bluetooth Version), Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, PlayStation DualShock 4 Wireless Controller, and iOS-specialized Bluetooth controllers (partial support)!”
In other news that will come as music to mobile player’s ears, Genshin Impact’s Version 1.3 will be available for pre-download before the patch actually goes live. That means you’ll be able to get ahead of the curve and have the new version ready to play as soon it becomes available.
There are a number of other questions answered in the post pertaining to game mechanics and various different materials, so be sure to check out the full post.
