The Steam Controller just got a much-needed new feature. As part of a big new beta update, you can now create multiple control sets within the same configuration and have them switch automatically. So, for instance, in GTA V you can get into an in-game car and have gyroscope steering turn on. Handy!
The Steam controller got another big update. Now in open beta, it allows you to register your Steam controller for easy access to your configurations anywhere. It also adds a selection of adorable chime noises for when you power on. Watch PocketEngi’s video of them above. I’m especially partial to “triumph.”
Rocket League is coming to SteamOS, and it’s free if you buy a Steam Machine, Steam Link, or Steam Controller. The car soccer sensation is great fun in split screen, so the pairing makes perfect sense. Also, it’s sold one million copies on Steam alone. I get the impression that maybe people like it a little.
