PS5 DualSense features revealed for Ratchet & Clank and a lot more

After a few quiet months, the PS5 is about to get a big influx of new games. Some of these, like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, are exclusive to Sony’s new console. Others, like Life Is Strange: True Colors, will be available on a variety of platforms. One thing they all have in common, though, is that they’ll all take full advantage of Sony’s innovative DualSense controller.

On the official PlayStation Blog, eight developers spoke with Sony to outline their DualSense plans. Ever since the PS5 debuted, both fans and critics have been pretty positive about the DualSense’s subtle haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. If you haven’t gone hands-on with a DualSense yet (PS5 restocks are really hard to get), the controller produces subtle vibrations and adjusts the tension on the trigger buttons in response to in-game phenomena. It’s either very immersive or very distracting, depending on whom you ask.

The eight games we learned about in Sony’s post are Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Subnautica: Below Zero, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Life Is Strange: True Colors, Scarlet Nexus, Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2, Kena: Bridge of Spirits and Returnal. Readers may be aware that Returnal actually came out a few weeks ago, but it did indeed have one of the most ambitious DualSense integrations yet, with extremely delicate effects for raindrops.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is probably the biggest game on the list, and the developers reiterated what they’ve said about its DualSense capabilities in previous discussions:
