Diablo Immortal Controller Support Guide

Blizzard’s goal with Diablo Immortal was to give fans the best mobile ARPG experience possible. As such, most of the controls and button layouts for Diablo Immortal were designed so Diablo fans on mobile can enjoy the unique gameplay of Diablo without the complex control schemes.

The Diablo franchise has always been PC and console-friendly; the first Diablo game was also released for the original Playstation, after all. So it only makes sense for the newest Diablo game to feature controller support. Right?

Diablo fans who prefer to use a controller when playing Diablo Immortal will wonder whether Diablo Immortal features full controller support. We will show you how you can set up your controller in Diablo Immortal in this guide.

Yes, Diablo Immortal features controller support on iOS, Android, and PC. However, not all controllers are cross-device compatible between iOS, Android, and PC, so your preferred controller might not work depending on the device you plan to play Diablo Immortal.

Using the In-game Cursor with the Controller

Because Diablo Immortal was designed with touchscreen controls, so most of the in-game menus and options will not be controller-friendly. Fortunately, Blizzard added an in-game cursor that you can move and position on any part of the screen to interact with on-screen menus/buttons.

You can bring up this cursor by pressing the right D-pad button on your PlayStation/Xbox/Nintendo Switch controller. Move the cursor using the left joystick, and interact with on-screen items by pressing the X button on Dualshock, the A button on Xbox, or the B button on the Joy-con/Pro Controller.

Handy Input Devices

There are not too many downsides to using a controller for Diablo Immortal on mobile or PC. The only thing that might take some getting used to is interacting with the in-game menus since these are tile-based and optimized for touch screens. This is easily remedied by the in-game cursor, anyway.

As long as you stick to the compatible controllers for your specific device, you should have no problems playing Diablo Immortal on mobile or PC with a game controller.
