Valve has added support for DualSense control in the latest Beta version of the Steam Client.
PlayStation 5 will be on sale in our country next November 19th, so until then we can only buy the games of the console, but not play them until then. As with the games, some PS5 peripherals – such as DualSense – can also be purchased in shops before the console.
As Valve has added support for Sony’s new controller, this means that now any PC games you have on your platform -Steam- that support controller controls, you can play them with DualSense. While there’s not much you can do right now beyond celebrating this compatibility, there are no games on Steam that you can use the controller with.
Although the main reason is that there is no game compatible on Steam with the functions offered by the DualSense, such as haptic triggers. Not surprisingly, however, these and other updates to take advantage of the PS5 controller on PC are coming soon.
In the Steam notes, you can read: “Added support for PS5 DualSense controller. The advanced features offered by the controller are not yet available”. Not only that but from now on you can also use the Xbox Series X controller as Valve has added support for the new Microsoft controller as well.
Thanks to this latest addition by Valve to Steam games, the list of compatible controllers in PC games across its platform has increased, with one of considerable size now following.
- Steam Controller
- DualSense control
- Switch Pro Controller
- DualShock 4
- Xbox 360 controller
- Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S controllers
