Metro Exodus: DualSense features of the PS5 now also on the PC

Metro Exodus

The makers of 4A Games have released an update for the Enhanced Edition of Metro Exodus, with which the functions of the DualSense controller of the PS5 can now also be used on the PC. These include features such as haptic feedback or the adaptive shoulder buttons. So far, however, the functions are only available if the controller is connected to the computer with a cable. A video about DualSense support has already been shared on Twitter.

Since the launch of the next-gen console from Sony, the controller can also be used on the PC. Metro Exodus is now the first game for the PC that also makes use of the special functions. More titles are likely to follow in the future.

At the beginning of the month, the Enhanced Edition of Metro Exodus was released for the PC. Among other things, the shooter now offers ray tracing support with compatible graphics cards. The upgrade to the Enhanced Edition is free for all previous owners. On June 18, the optimized version will also be available for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. Here, too, ray tracing as well as 4K and 60 FPS are among the highlights of the upgrade. As on the PC, the Enhanced Edition is also available here at no extra charge if you already have Metro Exodus for PS4 or Xbox One. There will also be a new Complete Edition of the title on June 18, which includes the main game as well as the two expansions "The Two Colonels" and "Sam's Story".

Metro Exodus on PC adds support for PS5 controller’s amazing adaptive triggers

Metro Exodus has become one of the first PC games to support the PS5 DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers thanks to a recent patch. Although many PC games already support the PS5 controller’s basic features, with Valve adding support for it to its Steam Input API last year, Metro Exodus now supports its advanced haptics, as well as its trigger features, which add extra resistance depending on what you’re doing in-game.

Videos posted by Twitter user @mrdomino_ and VGC’s Andy Robinson show the feature in action, including showing the controller’s right trigger springing back with the recoil from various weapons. It’s nothing new compared to what we’ve seen from native PS5 games like Returnal, but it’s great to see that same functionality replicated on PC.

The patch means Metro Exodus’s full support for the controller has actually arrived on PC before the PS5 itself. The official PS5 version of the game isn’t due to release until June 18th, when it will include full support for the controller’s haptic features alongside other features like ray tracing.

There appears to be a couple of downsides for PC players, however, with VGC reporting that the advanced DualSense features only seem to work over a wired connection, and not wirelessly. Tom’s Hardware also reports that the feature is exclusive to the Steam version of the game, and won’t work on purchases from the Epic Games Store or GOG. We’ve followed up with the game’s publisher for confirmation.
