Tango Gameworks’ GhostWire: Tokyo is one of the titles featured in a new PlayStation Blog post that discusses how developers are leveraging the PS5’s DualSense controller. The developer has already talked about the adaptive triggers and how they factor into combat. However, this time, it revealed some interesting new gameplay mechanics as well.
For instance, there’s a “sixth sense” that players can use which allows for “perceiving things normal humans cannot and using that insight to help solve the many mysteries enveloping the city of Tokyo.” The haptic feedback in the DualSense further lends to that feeling of attuning to the environment while “otherworldly voices” begin to emit from its in-build speakers. As for combat, ti seems that the protagonist can wield different elemental powers.
These range from “snappy, precise bursts” with Wind to Water’s “destructive rush” and Fire’s “raw devastation of fire.” Each has their own distinct feeling thanks to the adaptive triggers, which also help to really immerse you in ripping out an enemy’s core. And as abilities become stronger, there will be more feedback from the DualSense, thus creating “a noticeable sensation of real progress.”
GhostWire: Tokyo is out this year for PS5 and PC. Stay tuned for more details at E3 2021 especially with Bethesda confirmed to be attending the event.
