Here's the PS5 games using DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers

Next-gen immersion in a hands-on fashion.

The PS5 doesn't just bring in better graphics and higher framerates—it also gives players a new controller, the DualSense. This successor to the DualShock 4 features a higher-quality built-in microphone, a refined touchpad, an improved battery, and most importantly, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Those latter two features can be used by game developers in unique ways. For example, haptic feedback can give unique sensations, like the pattering of rain or a blast of energy, in a more focused and accurate way than rumble motors. Meanwhile, adaptive triggers can provide a variety of functions with different weapons due to the special physical functions implemented, essentially offering gameplay features that wouldn't be possible otherwise.

To provide a couple of examples, adaptive triggers are being used in Arkane Studios' Deathloop so that if a gun jams, the trigger physically locks. Meanwhile, in Insomniac Games' Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, you can pull a trigger partially to fire one barrel on a particular gun or pull it all the way to fire both barrels.

Meanwhile, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart also uses the haptic feedback to make it feel like Ratchet is running across various surfaces, with polished metal walkways feeling completely different than moving through tall grass or slogging in mud.

Accounting for all the different ways this can be used would start to border on impossible, so instead, we've listed all the games confirmed to take advantage of one or both of these unique features. Here's a list of PS5 games that support DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Note: We're still unsure if some of the games below will utilize both the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. We've marked those games accordingly.

As this list grows and the generation goes on, we'll be sure to expand the table with further details and confirmed games. While titles from PlayStation Studios are sure to use these features, third-party support may be more sparse as time goes on.

These are just some of the more advanced features possible on the PS5. The newer hardware also allows some PS5 games to support different kinds of ray-tracing. Meanwhile, a few other PS5 games even support 120 FPS.

New sensations

DualSense

Grab one

The unique features of the DualSense set it apart from other controllers and provide new ways of enjoying games. There are a few options, too, as you can grab one in white, black, or red.

Next-gen gaming is here!

In our PS5 review, Android Central Games Editor Jennifer Locke was truly impressed with the DualSense and cited it as a major plus for Sony's console, saying that it truly must be felt to understand why it's so good. If you haven't managed to grab one yet, keep an eye out for PS5 restocks so you can jump in on the latest generation of gaming.

To keep your controllers charged up and ready to go, you might want to grab a DualSense charging station. We've noticed that the more a game uses the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback features, the faster the battery drains. There's no consistent pattern to this, but, in general, from our testing, a DualSense controller with a healthy battery used to play Astro's Playroom will last just under three hours.

PlayStation Store Gift Card

Easy to stock up

PlayStation gift cards are an easy way to grab games on the PlayStation Store. Grabbing PS5 games digitally means no worries about physical copies for games that take advantage of the DualSense feature.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
