PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller and its haptic feedback feature will receive additional support with FIFA in its future updates and games, according to EA Sports Gameplay Producer Kantcho Doskov. The DualSense controller appears as though it’s instantly become a favorite device of next-gen technology among video game developers across the board.
The controller of the PlayStation 5’s adaptive triggers lets players experience a greater sense of tension, helping to better send the feel of firing a bow, for instance. In the meantime, haptic feedback is a more powerful application of what was previously attainable with HD rumble features.
So far, the DualSense’s haptics has been best integrated into the PlayStation 5’s pre-installed game, Astro’s Playroom. Make no mistake, though, FIFA21 utilizes the feature in innovative new ways, too. Vibrations on the left side of the DualSense increase in intensity after players perform a mighty left-footed shot.
Trigger support builds up as the player’s stamina goes down, implying the effects of exhaustion. It appears the developers at EA plans to integrate further DualSense support in FIFA’s gameplay as time goes on.
In an interview featured in the Official PlayStation Magazine Issue No.183, gameplay producer Kantcho Doskov revealed that the developers are interested in further discovering the probabilities with the DualSense’s haptic feedback feature. Doskov mentioned that “Going forward, we’ll definitely want to continue to add features and make more use of the DualSense haptics because it’s kind of game-changing.”
However, Doskov’s statement doesn’t point out whether the additional support on the DualSense will become available for FIFA 21. He might mean the developer is only exploring new options for upcoming FIFA releases. As of now, that much remains unknown. What does seem evident is that the development team is progressively becoming more interested in testing the DualSense in unique ways.
FIFA 21 initially hit retailer shelves last October, however, EA just launched native versions of the game on the Xbox Series X|S and the PlayStation 5 earlier this month. Luckily, players who already own a copy on the last-gen consoles can upgrade to the current-gen editions for free, so long as they own the same family of platforms across both generations.
However, not every bit of information is good news on EA’s sports front. Not all pro athletes were satisfied with their appearance being utilized in FIFA games, for example, and EA is facing another action-class lawsuit regarding its loot box practices.
