In a recent interview with Wired, Guerrilla Games studio director Angie Smets talked about the DualSense features related to Horizon: Forbidden West. Apparently, thanks to the controller’s tactile feedback, we will now be able to feel the leaves of grass in our hands during stealth sessions.
In a recent interview with Wired, the head of PlayStation Studios – Hermen Hulst – revealed some interesting news on upcoming PlayStation 5 titles; half are new IPs. However, the interview also talked about Horizon: Forbidden West, the upcoming open-world epic by Guerrilla Games.
Studio director Angie Smets spoke briefly about PS5’s DualSense and how haptic feedback contributes to the experience.
“If you want to sneak into a fight and dive into tall grass, you can feel those grass leaves.” Until now, we only knew that the controller’s adaptive triggers would make weapons “even more unique and satisfying to use.”
Hulst was also satisfied with the state of the game, which he recently replayed after “seven or eight months.” “I spent some time yesterday with Horizon: Forbidden West for the first time in seven or eight months. What was it like coming back in a long time? They gave me a gift.”
While this doesn’t tell us much about the game’s actual quality, we can guess that development is progressing at a steady pace.
Smets has confirmed that the release of Horizon: Forbidden West remains scheduled for the end of the year on PS4 and PS5. Stay tuned for more details and updates.
