The PC version of Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition has been updated to support the PS5’s DualSense controller features, including haptic feedback.
It seems that Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition is now the very first game on the PS5 to support haptics built into the DualSense controller on PC. This is the first time a PC game has integrated with controller support in such a way, as Ukrainian developers 4A Games added the support in a recent update to the game just last week.
Metro Exodus is the third installment in the Metro franchise, based on a series of books of the same name. The games are set in a post-apocalyptic scenario following a nuclear war in Russia, where civilians live underground in the railway systems to escape the deadly radiation above and the even deadlier mutated monsters. The games feature first-person shooting, with makeshift guns made from scrap, and limited ammo, and it switches between survival horror mechanics and stealth elements to overcome the harsh environment left behind after the nuclear war. Metro Exodus was the first to add a more sandbox-like structure to the game, with wide-open spaces to explore instead of the more linear gameplay seen in the first two games.

While the PS5’s DualSense controller has been compatible with PC games since the PS5 launched, Metro Exodus is the very first major title game to make proper use of all the features this next generation console controller has. According to VideoGamesChronicle, the feature has already been rolled out in an update last week, but the Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition won’t be released until June 18 on PS5. This means that the PC edition will be the only version of the game up until June 18 to have full haptic and adaptive trigger support.
This is all supposedly a part of Sony’s commitment to increasing its output on PC, an area that its major competitor Microsoft is already dominating in. The move to release Horizon Zero Dawn last year on Steam for PC was the first push towards such a move, with more updates on the roadmap according to Sony Interactive Entertainment’s President. The release of the Days Gone port this month was a part of this initiative. Moving PlayStation exclusives to the PC will hopefully bring more players and money to Sony’s IPs, such as The Last of Us and Bloodborne, both of which have been long rumored to be getting PC ports.
More games will hopefully be getting the same DualSense controller treatment that Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition is getting, especially those that were PS4 or PS5 games to begin with. It will only be a matter of time before more PC games start utilizing the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers of the DualSense controller on the PC.
