I have the retail copy and it does not work with an Xbox One Controller, DS4 or an XBOX 360 wired controller from my experience of 1 hr of trying to get it to work.

Yes. I did a search on google and came up with a few posts for people having the same issue. The "fixes" people have listed don't work. I'm surprised this isn't more well known. I guess most people play it with mouse/keyboard...I just can't do it after gaming with a controller since the pre PS1 days.

Shame as I was looking forward to playing the game this weekend. I was gifted the XBOX one version a while back...but it kinda sucks compared to the PC version. I guess I could just try the X1 version again. Hoping Xbox One X improves it.

I had no issues with my controller =/
While I may not agree with your opinion, I will defend to the death your right to have it.

no something on your end is wrong. prey worked perfectly fine for me on both my laptop and pc with XB1 controller with no 3rd party apps or anything so idk what to tell you.

Why does it matter? It's a first person shooter, therefore best played with a mouse and keyboard.

It's a single player first person shooter. Let other people play it how they want. If the game is supposed to work with a controller and doesn't, that's a problem. No matter how you try to justify it

This.

Prey works perfect with my Xbox one controller.

The game has built in controller support though.

UPDATE:

I went into big picture mode in steam and under the controller options, I unchecked the guide button option but checked off the xbox option.

Then I did a system restart and it's working.

Though really, I think it was the restart that did it because at first, messing with those options also did nothing.
