PlayStation 5 controller support out of beta in Steam



December 8 Valve added Steam support for the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller functions. Prior to that, the developers tested controller support in beta versions.

This means the controller’s backlight, vibration, gyro sensor and touchpad will work in Death Stranding, No Man’s Sky, Horizon: Zero Dawn and other compatible products. The rest of the games will also work, but will not use all the functions of the gamepad.

For the first time DualSense earned in the Steam Beta on November 12. On that day, the PlayStation 5 went on sale in the US and several other select countries. By the day of the start of sales in the rest of the world (November 19), the Steam developers have already tested in beta, advanced vibration motors and LED backlight features.

Additionally, the December 8th Steam update fixed an issue with the Xbox Series X controller, which, when connected, appeared as two separate controllers.

Valve is keen to see game developers add the Steam Input API, which is built into the Steam store. Blog company tells that controllers are popular on PCs as well. The above data claims that over the past two years, controllers have been used on Steam almost twice as often. The share of PlayStation gamepads has also grown: from 10.9% to 21.6%. And some games (for example, skateboarding themes) 90% of users run with a controller.
