The PlayStation 5’s DualSense is one of the Sony console’s greatest strengths, it’s also one of the best PC controllers. Thanks to its advanced haptic motors and ‘adaptive’ triggers, it feels like no controller I’ve used before—at least when playing PS5 games that take full advantage of it. While the DualSense is easy to use on PC as well, most games aren’t designed to take advantage of its unique hardware.
The exciting news is that some PC games, such as Deathloop, Metro Exodus and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, have actually started to tap into the DualSense’s special features. And thanks to Steam, we can easily use the DualSense controller in virtually any PC game without fussy setup.
Here’s a quick guide on how to use the PS5 DualSense controller on PC, via either wired USB or a wireless Bluetooth connection.
