In its blog post, Sony shared the first global ad spot for the next-gen PlayStation console expected this holiday season, showcasing some of the new features that aim at providing immersive gameplay on the new PS5.
The ad demonstrates the key immersive features that will be available with PS5, using the example of a young woman’s perspective. “It starts as she walks across a frozen lake, feeling the crack of ice at her feet. As the character senses danger, the sudden explosive reveal of the kraken from the icy surface showcases the haptic feedback sensation you can feel from DualSense™ wireless controller for the PS5 console,” describes Mary Yee, head of global marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The three features presented in the first digital ad for the upcoming console are the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller’s support for haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and 3D audio support.
“We are quite excited about these features and we can’t wait for you all to get more immersed in the world of games with the PS5 console and DualSense wireless controller in your own hands,” says Mary Yee.
However, the new ad neither sheds light on the price tag of the anticipated console nor reveals its release date.
Sony describes PS5 as the console that will allow players to “feel more” and says that its games will let people “see with sound,” emphasizing that the next generation of games will receive a kind of immersion never seen before.
On the PlayStation blog, Sony also shared some interviews with various game developers working on the upcoming games for the PS5 console. They discussed how they use the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in the DualSense controller.
So far, Sony has shared the hardware specs of the PlayStation5, its design along with a list of confirmed games that will come with the console, the game box design, the new DualSense controller, and two “Ready for PlayStation 5” TVs.
