One of the main marketing supports for PS5 is being the DualSense. There’s a lot of talk about the haptic vibration of the controller on Sony’s new home console and creatives seem delighted. Especially those who are developing horror games. If recently from Capcom they said that the DualSense was perfect for survival horror like Resident Evil 8 thanks to its 3D Audio, now it is the creators of the indie game Tormented Souls who have a similar opinion.
In an interview with the SegmentNext portal, Dual Effect Games have commented on their opinion about the possibilities that a peripheral such as the DualSense can offer in horror games, stating that it can be quite effective in increasing the feeling of fear in games like own Tormented Souls.
“The DualSense will be transcendent in PS5 horror games as it will help the player’s immersion. I can imagine a plastic artifact full of spiders that you hold with your hands using the joystick’s motion sensors while you can feel all those little legs of spider through the palm of your hand “, they say from PQube.
The funny thing is that Tormented Souls is not confirmed for next-generation consoles, but is scheduled to launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch throughout 2021. Although they have promised information about it soon.
