Deathloop devs describes how the game will take advantage of the DualSense controller

By Brittany Vincent,
The PlayStation 5's DualSense controller is capable of offering some very interesting experiences, from letting players feel Astro toddling along in Astro's Playroom to mimicking the feeling of tension when drawing back a bowstring.

According to Bethesda Softworks' Senior Content Manager Anne Lewis in a new post on the official PlayStation Blog, Deathloop will utilize the controller in important ways as well.

There are tons of weapons to explore using in Deathloop, and they're made to take advantage of the DualSense controller's abilities. This ranges from just the way a gun fires or a weapon swings to how it reloads or even hits your target. For instance, the silenced railgun, the PT-6 Spiker, lets you feel each nail as it falls into the magazine when you reload.

Additionally, you'll feel when your weapon is jammed as your trigger button will feel jammed when you pull it down halfway. You'll also feel when your character resolves the jam through the controller. Colt himself even feels like a "weapon" in many ways, as you can feel his movements through the controller as well as different types of terrain.

The speaker hasn't been excluded, though. You can hear bullets whizzing past, Julianna from your radio, and your weapon trigger's click. Overall, you'll be able to expect plenty out of the DualSense and for it to live up to the capabilities laid out for it.

Deathloop is currently set to debut on PlayStation 5 on May 21st 2021.
