All Steam players can now play titles that use the platform’s input API with PS5 DualSense controller. Valve has been gradually adding support for DualSense since the launch of Sony’s new console in mid-November. It started with adding the initial compatibility on the PS5 launch day, then deployment Full support for controller LED, trackpad, rumble and gyroscope functions a few weeks ago. However, players had to opt for Steam’s public beta client to use it – now compatibility has also made its way to non-beta Steam via the latest client update.
Games that can support DualSense’s LED, trackpad, rumble, and gyro features on Steam include Death Stranding, No Man’s Sky and Horizon: Zero Dawn, although the controller works with many, many more titles. In addition to rolling out DualSense compatibility for everyone, Valve also fixed an issue with the Xbox Series X controller, which appears as two separate controllers when linked. Plus, it added a directional sweep mode for use with trackpads and gyroscope. The developer also fixed other issues with the client, including an issue with YouTube website videos not starting automatically and an error with Windows and macOS voice shortcuts.
