The Last of Us remake reveals exclusive DualSense features

The DualSense controller features for The Last of Us remake have been revealed, and they’re pretty much what you might expect.

After more than a year of rumours and speculation, The Last of Us remake was officially revealed earlier this month. The remake will be built from the ground up and looks to be a shot-for-shot recreation of the 2013 original.

The Last of Us: Part 1 will boast improved visuals, animations, performance and more. Furthermore, with its PlayStation 5 release, it will also take advantage of the DualSense controller’s Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers.

Those familiar with the PS5 will also be familiar with its DualSense controller. The PS5 controller takes feedback to a new level, adding an extra layer of immersion. That being said, it’s nice to get confirmation nonetheless.

Details on the DualSense features were revealed on PlayStation Direct. Players will feel the impact of every weapon, terrain and more. Oh, and apparently you will also feel the rain. Though I suspect the features won’t go as far as getting us wet. Probably.

According to PlayStation Direct, the Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers for The Last of Us: Part 1 includes:

  • Haptic feedback: The DualSense wireless controller supports haptic feedback for every weapon and environmental effects such as the sensation of falling rain.
  • Adaptive triggers: Feel dynamic DualSense wireless controller trigger resistance for all The Last of Us iconic weapons, including Joel’s revolver and Ellie’s bow.
