According to recent reports, The Last of Us Part 2 and God of War on PS5 support the features of the DualSense controller, including adaptive triggers.
The Last of Us Part 2 and God of War are among the numerous games that can be played on the PS5 thanks to the backward compatibility of the new console.
And it seems that better load times and optimized frame rates aren’t the only improvements these games have to offer. GamesRadar was able to test both games on the PS5 and came to the conclusion that the haptic feedback and the adaptive triggers of the DualSense are also supported.
In the case of The Last of Us Part 2, actions such as pulling a bowstring activate a trigger effect, while the haptic feedback can be felt throughout the game – in moments of combat or when you are steering a boat, for example.
In combat, you can feel the tension in the DualSense adaptive triggers when you draw the string back on the bow, while every shot you fire on a weapon will also result in a feeling in the controller and it feels amazing,” said Gamesradar. “Knocking into obstacles while steering the boat, as well as sweeping around corners will also result in feedback on the DualSense.”
Similarly, throwing Kratos’ ax or using his shield seems to have an effect in God of War. What’s interesting is that neither Naughty Dog nor SIE Santa Monica officially talked about adding such enhancements to their games.
You can test the effects for yourself in the games, which have been updated accordingly, from November 12, 2020. On this day, the PlayStation 5 will appear in the USA. In addition, on the day of the launch, retailers will start taking additional PS5 orders.
