Assassin’s Creed Valhalla just got better on computers for those playing with the PS5 DualSense controller. As Ubisoft updated the computer version to support its adaptive triggers.
As you probably know, the adaptive triggering and tactile feedback of the DualSense controller is one of the PS5’s big success stories. We’re certainly excited about the transformative nature of this new immersion feature. And it’s possible to use a DualSense controller on a computer.
While there was initially no support for the above nifty computer additions, Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition received a patch in May that allowed adaptive triggers. And also how to fire weapons, and made shooting more satisfying.
And now Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has done the same in a secret update as discovered by VGC. Just like the Metro Exodus, you’ll need to have a controller plugged into the cord to take advantage of its benefits. And if you point the bow at Valhalla, the trigger will stop in half. It will be requiring further pulling to actually activate it – how does the boom start running on the PS5.
This is the only advantage of the DualSense controller on the console and Valhalla PC. But it’s still a very smart advantage for PC gamers and hopefully haptic triggers. And also support will soon make the next headlines (now I’ve seen two) games to pick up the holster. (adaptive hand like for months).
However, it will take some time for this support to happen. As we know the PS5 controller was first introduced to Steam players in November 2020.
When it comes to the synergies of PS5 and Windows 10 games. There’s another reason computer gamers are excited these days – namely Sony’s acquisition of the Nixxes software, a PC port development expert.
This could indicate that more ports are on the way, as Sony has of course pointed out. Although PC gamers will have to wait until the “right time”, with a suitable delay when starting the PlayStation (no wonder).
