Ubisoft has quietly added DualSense wireless controller support to the PC version of its latest Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. What this means is that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players on PC can now take advantage of some of the unique features provided by Sony’s next-gen controller, such as its adaptive triggers—as demonstrated by VGC, these triggers will now stop half way when firing a bow and require an extra input to fire, just like the PlayStation 5 version. At the moment, the DualSense wireless controller only works via a wired connection on PC. It isn’t clear when Sony will release a USB wireless adapter (like it did for the DualShock 4) to enable wireless connectivity and open up full functionality for PC gamers.
Valhalla appears to be the second major PC game to add functionality of the PS5 controller, following a similarly stealthy update added to Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition in May. Following the patch, the PC version of Metro makes use of DualSense’s unique features such as its adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. Like Valhalla, the features only work while in wired mode.
