In Touch With Your Viking Roots
Very recently, and quietly, Ubisoft has added DualSense support to one of their major titles. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s PC version can now benefit from the DualSense functions of a PlayStation 5 controller. The PlayStation 5 version of the game added support back in December 2020, but only minimally, as many non-exclusives do. Like the native PS5 version of Valhalla, playing the PC version with a PS5 controller now uses the adaptive triggers to fire arrows. Pull the right trigger to draw and arrow, “click” again to release, just like on PS5.
On one hand, yay! On the other hand, it is a small change to the game. If anything, adjusting might be a minor inconvenience. If you play AC Valhalla on the PC AND have a PS5 controller, might as well check it out. A little caveat though, the DualSense functionality only works when your PS5 controller is plugged into your PC; it will not work wirelessly, but you can hope for another update.
Again, DualSense in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a small step, as this is only the second major PC title, after Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition, to include DualSense support. Hopefully, with PlayStation’s plans to bring more exclusives to PC, we will find DualSense making more appearances in PC games. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available for PC, Stadia, Amazon Luna, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
