Mass Effect: Andromeda will support controllers on PC

Good news for people who prefer to play third-person games with a pad: Mass Effect: Andromeda will feature native controller support. While that might not seem like big news, neither Mass Effect 2 or Mass Effect 3 had controller support on PC, despite them being released for consoles. 

Mass Effect: Andromeda is out on March 21 - here's a list of all the other upcoming PC games

The best thing about this controller news is that you can freely switch between controller and mouse and keyboard seamlessly. Tuck yourself behind cover or casually explore a hub with the controller, pop alien heads with your mouse. 

Mass Effect: Andromeda's lead designer, Ian S. Frazier, revealed the news in a tweet: 

As the tweet suggests, BioWare won't be forgetting mouse and keyboard users, so hopefully there's a good option for everyone. If it's anything like the original trilogy, the UI will suit the input method, too.

I just hope the game is longer then a day, I hate short 12-20 hours of story, I want 60-80 hours in story alone, with some fun gameplay that makes me stay attached, and dlc's that has story up to 20 hours or more.

Well considering this will be the first Mass Effect brought to the PC that will natively support controllers I think the title makes more sense the way it is?
