Sony will be adding full DualSense controller haptic feedback support to PlayStation 4 exclusives such as Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II and others.

PlayStation 5's DualSense controller is widely considered as a proper piece of next-gen hardware thanks to brilliant work by Sony's designers and engineers.

Many reviewers are impressed by DualSense's haptic feedback feature, which adds more immersion to the overall gaming experience, allowing players to feel the weight of their actions in game.

As expected, every first-party PlayStation 5 game will support the haptic feedback feature and many third-party titles too. Some of these games include Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon's Souls and Dirt 5 to name few.

Today, we found out that backwards compatible titles from Sony will also get full haptic feedback support. One of the games that already received the update is The Last of Us Part II, according to folks over at NintendoSmash .

"We've been struck by how haptic vibration works in a game like The Last of Us Part II. Not only do we get a feel for it when we ride, right at the start of the game, but we can even feel the vibration with some guitar chords that sound like a soundtrack," they wrote in their DualSense review.

It seems that more PlayStation 4 exclusives will also get full haptic feedback support but we do not have the details at the time of writing.

We would love to see Bloodborne with haptic feedback support (and hopefully 60 FPS) to enjoy the game's fantastic combat even more.

Uncharted comes to mind as another PlayStation 4 exclusive that would benefit greatly from DualSense's haptic feedback.

Hopefully, all these and many other titles will be supported, if not on launch, then somewhere down the line.
