You can plug-in any modern controller such as PS4, Xbox, Nintendo, or any other, Valheim will detect it and the keys will be pre-mapped for you. You need to remember that it’s not natively compatible with the controller and you might get some issues while accessing the map and doing other things, as Valheim is a crafting game.
While Valehim in its early access phase, so you can’t expect a much smoother gaming experience with the controller as you get with Keyboard and mouse. Some Reddit users facing some issues with controller compatibility especially with the PlayStation DualSense Controller.
