If you happen to be playing Rainbow Six Siege on PS5, you’ll also get to experience some cool new DualSense features

The PS5 Rainbow Six Siege experience is not limited to visual enhancements. Thanks to the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers, squeezing R2 emulates the resistance of an actual trigger, offering a unique feel for each weapon category and shooting gadget. For example, adaptive trigger resistance is light and quick for pistols, and heavier for bigger, powerful weapons like light machine guns. Players will also be able to feel the difference between single fire and full-automatic for full immersion.

In addition, thanks to the haptic feedback players will sense impact like never before. Dynamic and immersive, haptic feedback reacts with the environment. Weapons, explosions, gadgets and so on will provide feedback directly in the player’s hands.

Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions of the game will be available on December 1, alongside Year 5, Season 4! What do you think? Eager to play Siege at 120fps?
