Immerse yourself in Deathloop on PS5 with the DualSense controller

The PlayStation Blog has highlighted DEATHLOOP’s PlayStation 5 exclusive features for the DualSense controller. Developers Arkane Lyon have utilised the new DualSense controller to enhance the immersive experience, revealing some examples of how this will work in-game. Below are three examples with some footage to illustrate. Visit the blog post for more here.

Dynamic weapons:

With  DEATHLOOP’s dynamic weapons, every weapon will feel unique in your hands. From the way it fires or swings, to the way it reloads or connects with its target, you’ll feel the difference through the DualSense controller.

Realistic weapons systems:

When a low-tier weapon is jammed, your trigger button will be blocked halfway, giving you instantaneous feedback even before the animation notifies you. It’s a momentary setback that could force you to retreat for a beat while you fix it. As you’re watching your character on-screen punch the gun to get it in working order, you’ll feel a correlating strike in your controller, activating the mechanism to unjam it.

Haptic mobility:

It’s not just your weapon’s actions that will have a unique feel through the controller (unless you consider Colt to be a weapon himself, which might be a safe consideration). Every type of movement your character makes will provide a different sensation, whether you’re running, sliding, climbing, sneaking, or teleporting your way through Blackreef.

DEATHLOOP arrives on consoles exclusively for PS5 and PC on May 21, 2021.
