Here’s the PS5 games using DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers

The PS5 doesn’t just bring in better graphics and higher framerates–it also gives players a new controller, the DualSense. This successor to the DualShock 4 features a higher-quality built-in microphone, a refined touchpad, an improved battery, and most importantly, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Those latter two features can be used by game developers in unique ways. For example, haptic feedback can give unique sensations, like the pattering of rain or a blast of energy, in a more focused and accurate way than rumble motors. Meanwhile, adaptive triggers can provide a variety of functions with different weapons due to the special physical functions implemented, essentially offering gameplay features that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.

To provide a couple of examples, adaptive triggers are being used in Arkane Studios’ Deathloop so that if a gun jams, the trigger physically locks. Meanwhile, in Insomniac Games’ Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, you can pull a trigger partially to fire one barrel on a particular gun or pull it all the way to fire both barrels.

Meanwhile, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart also uses the haptic feedback to make it feel like Ratchet is running across various surfaces, with polished metal walkways feeling completely different than moving through tall grass or slogging in mud.

Accounting for all the different ways this can be used would start to border on impossible, so instead, we’ve listed all the games confirmed to take advantage of one or both of these unique features. Here’s a list of PS5 games that support DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Note: We’re still unsure if some of the games below will utilize both the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. We’ve marked those games accordingly.

As this list grows and the generation goes on, we’ll be sure to expand the table with further details and confirmed games. While titles from PlayStation Studios are sure to use these features, third-party support may be more sparse as time goes on.

These are just some of the more advanced features possible on the PS5. The newer hardware also allows some PS5 games to support different kinds of ray-tracing. Meanwhile, a few other PS5 games even support 120 FPS.

New sensations

DualSense

Grab one

The unique features of the DualSense set it apart from other controllers and provide new ways of enjoying games. There are a few options, too, as you can grab one in white, black, or red.

Next-gen gaming is here!

In our PS5 review, Android Central Games Editor Jennifer Locke was truly impressed with the DualSense and cited it as a major plus for Sony’s console, saying that it truly must be felt to understand why it’s so good. If you haven’t managed to grab one yet, keep an eye out for PS5 restocks so you can jump in on the latest generation of gaming.

To keep your controllers charged up and ready to go, you might want to grab a DualSense charging station. We’ve noticed that the more a game uses the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback features, the faster the battery drains. There’s no consistent pattern to this, but, in general, from our testing, a DualSense controller with a healthy battery used to play Astro’s Playroom will last just under three hours.
