Plenty of folks have been talking up PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller. With launch nearly here, we’re learning more third-party games are taking advantage of the controller’s features, including Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War.
GameSpot recently chatted with Cold War Lead Game Designer Tony Flame, who revealed every weapon in Cold War has a custom haptics profile. Here’s Flame talking about it:
The DualSense controller is pretty awesome. It’s got new haptic feedback so when you’re pulling the trigger, it’s shaking, every time a gun fires there is a little motor in there that’s firing every time. There is sensitivity on the trigger that represents the trigger pressure on a real weapon. All of that has been tuned in the game for each individual weapon. So it’s quite a lot to take in, but it’s pretty awesome, and it gives the guns a feeling like they’ve never had before.
The haptic triggers also kick in when aiming. PlayStation jumped on Twitter to explain that heavy weapons feel heavier when you aim.
I didn’t think a controller would be one of the more exciting things about next-gen, but it sounds pretty damn cool. We’re only a couple of days from feeling it in action.
Black Ops Cold War hits consoles and PC on November 13. It comes back with all the usual modes from a Treyarch Call of Duty. As for Warzone? We know the two games are coming together when the first season launches in December.
