Hogwarts Legacy DualSense Features Bring The PS5 To Life

Hogwarts Legacy DualSense Features Bring The PS5 To Life

Forget wands raised, it's controllers raised, as Avalanche Software shows off the Hogwarts Legacy DualSense features that'll make you glad you shelled out those galleons on a PS5. If you haven't managed to accio PlayStation's new-gen console, you'll be left feeling like Harry under the stairs. 

Long before a certain spectacled wizard was stepping through the doors of this famed School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, there were plenty of stories to tell. Hogwarts Legacy is just one of them. Taking place in the late 1800s, you try to stop the usual crop of Dark Wizards and a goblin rebellion. It looks suitably glossy, but now, we get to see what Hogwarts Legacy will actually play like. 

What Are The Hogwarts Legacy DualSense Features?

After its (many) delays and people still thinking Hogwarts Legacy won't release in 2022, Avalanche and Warner Bros. Interactive are doing everything in their power to stop these rumours in their tracks. The latest way to dispel our fears is a snazzy video showing off the Hogwarts Legacy DualSense features.

Although the trailer is only short, it shows off an impressive array of ways the Wizarding World comes to life. Describing it as next-gen immersion, we get to see haptic feedback during a mine cart ride, the strength of a spell with adaptive triggers, and hearing the world around you with 3D audio. 

However, arguably the best of the Hogwarts Legacy DualSense features is the ability to change the controller to light up like your favourite house colours. Even if Hogwarts Legacy wasn't built for the PlayStation, it's clear there's been a focus on making the DualSense more than just a novelty controller here.

 

Is Hogwarts Legacy A PlayStation Exclusive?

Don't worry though, you're still able to play on PC, Xbox, and even Hogwarts Legacy on Nintendo Switch - with the latter finally getting in on the action after fears Nintendo's little system wouldn't be able to handle the punch of the AAA title. When Hogwarts Legacy was first revealed at 2020's PlayStation 5 event, there were (rightly) fears it would be a PlayStation exclusive. 

While Sony's first-party titles like God of War and Marvel's Spider-Man have raked in a small fortune, you only have to look at the might of the Wizarding World to see WB would've been foolish to chain itself to just one system. Still, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has PlayStation bonuses, there are some perks to being a Sony Pony instead of an Xbot. We just need to hope those last-gen PS4 and Xbox One versions don't get cancelled.
