This week a new Client Update has been rolled out that takes the Steam Support For PlayStation DualShock 4 out of its beta development stage and into the official client.
The Steam support for PS4 controllers has been available since October in a beta development form and has now been extensively tested by both valve and those downloading the beta updates to create the final release which is now available.
The latest Steam patch notes for the latest update read :
– Added Steam Configurator support for PS4 Dual Shock Controller. Enable in Big Picture settings Add/Test Controller settings. When enabled, PS4 controllers will have access to the same sort of customization/configuration support as Steam Controllers, including native API support. PS4 Controllers using this system can map the trackpad, gyro, buttons, etc. to keyboard, mouse, or x-input outputs and can make use of action sets, touch menus, radial menus, and so forth.
– Added software gyro+accelerometer integration for IMUs without hardware integration. Allows Joystick-Move/D-Pad/Mouse Leaning support for the PS4 gyro input.
