Earlier this week, The Final of Us 2 acquired a free PS5 efficiency patch which permits homeowners of the next-gen console to run the sport at 60 frames per second. Alongside a brand new PS5 patch, the sport’s co-director additionally confirmed that gamers would possibly discover a change within the haptics when taking part in the sport with a DualSense controller.Kurt Margenau defined in a Twitter thread today, detailing the brand new modifications made to the DualSense following a software program replace launched in April. Margenau explains that he gave suggestions to the DualSense group to assist “enhance timing, depth, and ‘texture'” of haptics” when utilizing the controller to play backward suitable titles to assist present a extra genuine really feel showcased in its predecessor, the DualShock 4.

The DualShock 4 contains two different-sized rotating weights, whereas the DualSense contains two weights that may transfer ahead and backward. Margenau explains how the DualSense is “nearly like a speaker,” as it might produce frequency and amplitude at an “extraordinarily excessive constancy and low latency.”

So, the DualSense firmware must enable the controller to obtain “outdated alerts,” that might spin up the motor to supply a better latency and, in flip, emulate the sensation in a brand new controller by utilizing a very completely different mechanical methodology, such because the “rumbly feeling” that comes with a rotating motor, in line with Margenau.

Primarily, all this implies is that each one the work performed to enhance the DualSense’s haptics in The Final of Us Half II was performed solely from contained in the controller with out Naughty Canine having to change the sport code.

The brand new firmware replace expands on the options already supported in The Final of Us Half II. As GamesRadar reported in November, the sport supported the DualSense’s flagship characteristic, noting that the sport’s fight permits PS5 homeowners to “really feel the stress” when utilizing the controller’s adaptive triggers, akin to firing a gun.
