At the time of writing, Darkest Dungeon 2 does not offer controller support. So if you plan on playing the game from the comfort of your couch using a controller, you might have to rely on third-party applications like JoyToKey. 

According to some Steam users, the game was going to launch with controller support, as mentioned in the FAQ post and Darkest Dungeon 2’s Discord. But the mentions were later removed. 

How to play Darkest Dungeon 2 using a controller

If you are that eager to play Darkest Dungeon 2 using a controller, you can follow the steps below:

Will Darkest Dungeon 2 officially get controller support?
