The PlayStation 5’s DualSense wireless controller is helping to immerse players deeper into Isaac’s journey in “Dead Space.” Haptic feedback allows players to feel the impact of various events, such as shooting weapons, asteroids hitting the ship, and Necromorphs attacking.
The goal of the weapons in “Dead Space” is to give each one a unique feel and sensation, making the experience of fighting Necromorphs even more engaging.
The following are examples of DualSense controller gameplay:
Steady the plasma cutter and aim at a lunging Slasher’s legs. Fire the weapon by pushing the DualSense trigger past the required threshold, feeling the weapon’s vibration shortly after. The DualSense trigger then pushes back up, re-initializing for the next shot.
The same trigger effect can be felt with the flamethrower, but with a slight difference as you can feel a low vibration on the trigger as the ejected gas turns into a flame.
As a Swollen approach, pull out the pulse rifle and hold down the DualSense trigger. You will feel the trigger buck with each round fired from the rifle.
Movement and Ability Haptics
In zero-gravity areas, activate Isaac’s magnetic boots and feel the impact of each step through haptic vibrations on the controller. The player also receives real-time feedback through the controller’s haptic vibrations when using Isaac’s Kinesis and Stasis modules.
To further enhance the immersion, players receive gameplay feedback through the controller’s speakers. As players perform actions such as picking up items, refilling stasis energy, and using their locator, they will hear the effects from Isaac’s RIG through audio.
