Sony released the first PS5 global ad for its upcoming next-gen console and it is pretty awesome. The advert highlights the features of the DualSense controller touching on some of the immersive feelings players can expect when using the device.
Things such as feeling the crack of the ice under a player’s feet whilst walking across a frozen lake. This is thanks to the haptic feedback. Hearing sound coming from all directions thanks to the 3D AudioTech and feeling the tension on the trigger as a player draws a bow and arrow thanks to the adaptive triggers.
While the PlayStation 5 advert is clearly an over-exaggerated representation of the experience, it is a great watch nonetheless.
In addition to the PS5 ad, multiple developers shared their PlayStation 5 DualSense experience on the PlayStation Blog. In addition, many of them shared how they are using the controller’s features to deliver new gaming immersion.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5 will let players know which directions attacks are coming from by tapping their hands with the haptic feedback. In addition, attacks and superpowers are all delivered in a unique way through the vibrator motors.
In the delayed Deathloop game, the adaptive triggers will block when your weapon jams making it impossible to shoot.
In Ghostwire Tokyo, every vibration level is carefully adjusted to scale with the game’s intensity. A player knows when they are in trouble compared to just casually walking through the city.
Take a look at what other developers say about the DualSense controller on the PlayStation Blog here.
