How to use PlayStation 5 controller on Steam

Windows: PlayStation 5 owners can now use the PS5 DualSense controller Play PC games on Steam. By default, Valve’s latest Steam beta adds full DualSense compatibility to all controller-enabled games. No additional software is required and there are no settings to configure.

Support for DualSense on Steam was inevitable. The app supports over 200 other controller options, including many Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 controllers.— But it’s exciting to get almost full compatibility on Steam right after the PS5 launch. After all, the PS5 controller is easily one of the best controllers on any system.

I still think Worth waiting to buy a PS5 (Not many people have a choice, (Because of the low supply), but I have a confession: I bought it, and the coolest thing about it is the DualSense controller. It’s well done, the buttons are snappy, and the thumbstick has good tension, But what made me crazy was the tactile rumble and adaptive triggers on the controller.

Unfortunately, DualSense adaptive triggers, which can simulate extra tension based on in-game actions, are the only feature that Steam doesn’t support. However, the controller’s gyro, touchpad, and tactile rumble will work with all controller-enabled Steam games without the need for a patch from the developer.
