The PlayStation 5 released last November and fans were thrilled to see the features of the new DualSense 5 controllers. Apart from a slick new design to offer a better hand-held experience, the DualSense 5 has tonnes of new features to offer.

First and foremost, Haptic feedback will replace the plain old rumble pack found in controllers across many generations of gaming. The DualSense includes actuators that give a player a more tangible, adaptable feedback to better immerse players in a game. For instance, in Dirt 5 driving on ice will not feel the same as driving over gravel.

The adaptive triggers allow a more authentic gaming experience. These triggers are sensitive to the force of touch. This means that they operate according to the amount of pressure applied. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart makes good use of these triggers to unleash various fire types.
