The blog post focuses on the addition of haptic feedback for Pistol Whip’s PSVR 2 release, although players will also benefit from SSD optimisation for reduced load times and scene transitions.
However, with haptic feedback, the Sense controllers provide a more realistic firing experience, including a new reload SFX for different weapons and varying degrees of resistance. There’s also three different types of melee SFX to provide multiple sensations when Pistol Whipping foes.
Mike L. the game’s lead haptic engineer for PSVR 2, commented:
When implementing the adaptive triggers, we found a number of ways to provide controller feedback. Now players will feel an increasing resistance as they pull the trigger, flattening out shortly before drawing it far enough that the weapon fires, at which point resistance drops to zero.
Pistol Whip is out for PSVR 2 on February 22, 2023.
