Play 'World of WarCraft' With Your Xbox 360 Controller

Rich in legend and filled with adventure, the World of Warcraft awaits! For the first time, players experience the lands of Azeroth from a new, in-depth perspective. As heroes, they explore familiar battlefields, discover new lands and take on epic quests and challenges.

SwitchBlade is an easy-to-use application that brings a fully configured game controller interface to any PC game. Once SwitchBlade is installed, it provides a console gaming experience for the gamer looking for a new way to play popular PC games. The first game supported by SwitchBlade is World of Warcraft. Preconfigured key bindings map the Xbox 360 controller buttons to the most commonly used World of Warcraft controls.

In addition to its “plug and play” pre-configured options, SwitchBlade is a highly customizable application. Experienced World of Warcraft players get extensive opportunities to reconfigure button mappings to match their unique style of play.
“We all know that World of Warcraft is popular, but a lot of gamers are just hooked on the console controller experience,” said Aaron Levin, Blue Orb’s Vice President of Business Development. “With SwitchBlade, they can relax on the couch with a gamepad instead of hunching over a keyboard and mouse.”

“Partnering with Blue Orb enables us to offer a superior playing experience for Xfire users,” said Adam Boyden, Xfire’s General Manager. “We invite gamers to download the free SwitchBlade software from Xfire and experience a new way to play World of Warcraft.”

Future versions of SwitchBlade will include support for a wide range of PC games, and will provide support for additional types of game controllers.

SwitchBlade is available for free download and registration from
