Sony has published its first PS5 spot, and it’s a live-action affair for the DualSense controller’s features such as adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, and audio.

You can watch the first digital ad for PS5 and its DualSense controller below.

Here’s the blurb:

“You’ll see the new console’s features come to life through a young woman’s eyes and her movements. It starts as she walks across a frozen lake, feeling the crack of ice at her feet. As the character senses danger, the sudden explosive reveal of the kraken from the icy surface showcases the haptic feedback sensation you can feel from DualSense wireless controller for the PS5 console.

“Sound then comes from all directions as the central character reacts to everything she hears – whether it’s coming from the front, the side, above, or from behind her – showcasing the PS5 console’s Tempest 3D AudioTech. Closing out the spot – as the central character draws her bow – the tension of her bowstring is a sensation you’ll also feel, made possible through the DualSense wireless controller’s adaptive triggers.”

Sony says it will have more to share in the coming weeks, which hopefully means we will get a price and release date sooner rather than later.

For now, you can expect the new console to arrive sometime during the holiday season and read up on everything we know about PS5 so far through our handy hub.
