PlayStation 5 DualSense Controller Supports Haptic Feedback on Steam

In the past few hours, Steam has released a new update for support on its platform of DualSense of PlayStation 5.

As you well know, Sony’s revolutionary next-gen PS console controller DualSense introduces several advanced features, including haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, so being able to implement all these features in just over a week is really very difficult for players and developers.


But according to the recent press release given out by Valve Corporation, it would seem that Steam is able to fully support the advanced vibration of the PS5 DualSense.

Here are the details of the announcement:

The Steam Client Beta has been updated with the following changes:

Steam Input
Implemented rumble over Bluetooth for the PS5 controller
Reduced rumble intensity for the PS5 controller
Allow external audio based haptics while rumble is enabled on the PS5 DualSense controller

Fix for developers on some networks using local content servers

As you well know, the DualSense in addition to offering engaging haptic feedback and dynamic adaptive triggers, mounts an integrated microphone inside, so it will be interesting to find out if Steam is willing to take advantage of this interesting feature of the controller as well.


Waiting to find out more details on future updates, we remind you that PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition officially made their debut worldwide on November 19th.
