World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Is Adding Support For The Xbox Adaptive Controller

The next World of Warcraft PC expansion will be Shadowlands, which doesn't have an official release date as of yet, but is currently in alpha testing. And according to a recent comment made to Windows Central, the expansion will feature more accessibility options for the likes of the Xbox Adaptive Controller.

Responding via Twitter, Blizzard UX researcher Nikki Crenshaw shared a message from one of the game's community managers about the new accessibility integration:

"We always want to make WoW more widely accessible, if possible, so in Shadowlands, we’re attempting to add some support for keybinds, camera, and turning a character on controllers such as the Xbox Adaptive Controller."

The Xbox Adaptive Controller is described by Microsoft as "a unified hub for devices that helps make gaming more accessible." We've heard lots of stories about it recently, including it being used to play Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch, so it's good to see World of Warcraft planning support for it as well.
