Steam beefs up DualSense support with LED, rumble, and more

On the developer side of things, the Steam team says that devs already using the Steam Input API won't need to do a thing to add support for the DualSense controller into their games.

Steam added basic support for the PlayStation 5's DualSense controller last week, and has now built on that initial rollout with expanded support.

On the developer side of things, the Steam team says that games already using the Steam Input API won't need to do a thing to add support for the DualSense controller into their games.

Folks using the beta client of Steam can also tap into some of the DualSense's other features as well. Specifically: "Full support for the LED, trackpad, rumble and gyro features are available for players to configure in games such as Death Stranding, No Man’s Sky, Horizon: Zero Dawn and more."

Once any kinks have been worked out through the public beta launch, full support will launch for the non-beta version of Steam at some unspecified point down the line.
