Reimagined Dead Space Utilizes All the Benefits of the DualSense Controller

Not long before its release, Motive, the developer of the Dead Space remake, disclosed how the upcoming space horror game will take full advantage of the PS5’s DualSense controller. Even though this remake is also coming out on Xbox Series X/S and PC, the developer has suggested some exclusive benefits for the PlayStation 5 version.

When it was first launched in 2008, Dead Space quickly became a renowned title for space horror games. The plot follows Isaac Clarke, an engineer that arrives to a spaceship after recieving a distress call. He finds it devoid of crew, but that’s not all; Clarke finds himself surrounded by eerie extraterrestrial monsters. The remake of Dead Space has the same storyline as the original, but with various enhancements, such as improved visuals and changes to make it more accessible to a larger audience.

In a blog post recently posted on the PlayStation page, Motive Studios showcased some of the ways that the Dead Space remake takes full advantage of the PS5’s DualSense controller. This game particularly benefits from the controller’s haptic feedback and its inbuilt speakers, which further immerse the players as they traverse the USG Ishimura and confront the horrifying extraterrestrial creatures from the remake of Dead Space.

The DualSense controller on the PlayStation 5 grants players a realistic experience with its haptic feedback, offering varying degrees of force when pressing the triggers. This feature can be seen in the remake of Dead Space, where players can discharge shots from the plasma cutter and feel each round that is fired from the pulse rifle. Additionally, the haptic feedback lets players feel the steps they take with Isaac’s magnetic boots in zero-gravity areas and vibration feedback when using the Kinesis and Stasis modules. As well as this, the DualSense provides audio cues through the controller’s built-in speakers to give further gameplay feedback.

The PlayStation 5 will heighten players’ gaming experience with the remake of Dead Space. Motive has even gone so far as to advise that the game may be too frightening to play with headphones at night. Despite the horrific elements, gamers may be tempted to uncover the new trophies and achievements and explore the revamped look of Isaac Clarke. Additionally, the Dead Space remake has a unique ending distinct from the original, giving gamers further incentive to explore all the game has to offer.

Dead Space is set to be released on January 27th, available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
