Good news for fans looking to get stuck into The Last of Us 2 on PS5, the haptic feedback features of the new Dualsense controller are reportedly included. There is no word on whether The Last of Us 2 is getting a new version of the title on PlayStation 5, though.
There might be a distinct lack of new regarding a PlayStation 5 version of The Last of Us 2, however reports are showing that the game will benefit from the Dualsense’ haptic feedback features when running through backwards compatibility.
It’s bridging the gap between a full-blown remaster ( if you could even call it that) and cross-generational compatibility in the best way.
The haptic feedback features present in The Last of Us 2 include the tension of Ellie’s bowstring and a reactive rumble for every gunshot fired. Furthermore, when piloting the motorboat in-game players will be able to feel the rumble of the engine.
Sadly, there isn’t any expanded information regarding Dualsense support for other PlayStation 4 exclusives, however this seems to be contradictory to reports that players would need to use a Dualshock for PS4 games.
The Last of Us 2‘s Haptic Feedback Support Isn’t Isolated
In addition to The Last of Us 2, God of War is also reportedly showing signs of haptic feedback support when played on a PlayStation 5.
Players have reported that there are distinct differences with the rumble when using Kratos’ shield in hand-to-hand combat.
There are expectations that PlayStation 5 exclusive games, such as Spider-Man Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls will have Dualsense haptic feedback support. However, what does this mean for all the other PlayStation exclusive titles?
Haptic feedback support would work well on games like Ghost of Tsushima and Days Gone, in a similar sense to how it works with The Last of Us 2. There are also a number of PlayStation Exclusive titles launching with the PS Plus Collection on release day. Will they all feature Dualsense support?
