A Plague Tale: Requiem was just released today, and the feedback seems positive so far. In fact, some fans have found many hidden benefits that can enhance the gaming experience even further. One of the notable ones we found was that A Plague Tale: Requiem has full DualSense 5 support on PC.
But before we venture into that, let us make it clear that we won’t be discussing any spoilers related to the game so as not to ruin your experience. We will discuss the DualSense 5 features and the game’s support exclusively. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s see what this means exactly.
Since A Plague Tale: Requiem is an action-adventure game that focuses on some stealth elements, we know how things can get intense and even chaotic at times. The game is also story-driven as it is a sequel to the 2019 game and follows the story of siblings, Amicia and Hugo de Rune, who search for a cure for Hugo’s blood disease.
About DualSense 5’s Features
The DualSense wireless controller is for PS5, and it offers two main features and a built-in microphone, all of which are integrated into a clean and smooth design. The main two features include:
Haptic Feedback – It gives a physical feedback response to the actions in-game. They are achieved through dual actuators that replace the traditional rumble motors. So, if you have the DualSense in your hand, you have these vibrations that stimulate the feeling of what is in the environment and also work with weapon recoil.
Adaptive Triggers – You can experience carrying levels of force and tension by interacting with your gear in-game and the environments within. It allows your game to feel more immersive and connected to you, e.g., you can feel the bowstring getting tight or the brakes on your fast cars.
A Reddit user has reported that the game supports DualSense right out of the box and that he is currently playing the game in the game pass version.
You don’t need to download any third-party software or hack anything to make the game support the full features of DualSense 5.
There aren’t many games that support the full DualSense feature support, and the effects are easily noticeable. They make the gameplay far better; therefore, A Plague Tale: Requiem supporting it is great news for the community.
A Plague Tale: Requiem Supports DualSense 5
Since we know DualSense 5 is a controller for PlayStation 5, it should be noted that you can still use it on your PC. Although there are no official PC drivers, it can be either used through Steam or in games that even support the fancy features.
The good news for PC players is that they now have another title to add to their “must-play with DualSense” list. Our keen eyes at TopTierList found some exciting features in a Reddit post. According to Reddit user Gnerma, the game has full DualSense 5 support out of the box.
So, you won’t need to download any sketchy software or do some hacking to experience that. Just plug in your DualSense, and you will have these features immediately. They even mentioned that it is “cool feeling the rats skitter around,” so this game might be much more immersive than others we have seen.
Some people shared that this wasn’t working for them, and if you are experiencing the same thing, ensure that you are plugging in the DualSense when it is turned off. The controller should turn on by itself, and you can enjoy the features.
We have seen these features with some other titles, including Deathloop, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Marvel’s Spider-Man. The haptic feedback and adaptive triggers make the gameplay much more fun and should be a must-experience in A Plague Tale: Requiem as well.
If you purchased the game, let us know what you think of it so far. And if you experienced it with DualSense, is it really as exciting as it sounds? Share your thoughts with us, and we will discuss them with you!
