F1 2022’s DualSense controller features detailed
Codemasters has gone over how it is making use of the DualSense controller’s features with its latest Formula One title in a post on the PlayStation Blog.
Starting with haptic feedback, F1 2022 will be able “to communicate individual chunks of surface debris and creates a far more immersive experience to represent the car on a particular part of the track.” The feedback can also be localized to the left or right side of the controller.
While the controller’s speaker will be used to relay messages from the race engineer throughout each session. Additionally, “important HUD information” will also be delivered via the speaker.
The final piece of the puzzle is the DualSense’s adaptive triggers. “For PS5, the adaptive triggers are utilized by attaching the amount of resistance directly to slip ratios of the tyres,” senior game designer Steven Embling explained. So if the car locks up, the amount of resistance in the triggers will increase, and also resistance is increased with wheelspin.
“A subtle difference to the resting resistance of the accelerator and brake triggers has also been applied to simulate the difference in pressure needed to fully depress the brake vs accelerator pedals in a real-life F1 car,” Embling added.
F1 2022 launches July 1st for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Players looking to jump in early can purchase the Champions Edition which includes three days of early access, My Team Icons, 18,000 PitCoin, and more.
