Valve tests DualSense wireless support on Steam with all its advanced features. Valve was already working on implementing and fully supporting the advanced features of the PS5 DualSense controller via cable. They have added support for the gyroscope, touch trackpad, LED lighting and the new vibration system to the Steam platform.
- Steam will support PS5 DualSense and Xbox Series X controllers
- Steam Playtest will facilitate free testing of games under development
- Valve is developing a chat and text filtering feature for Steam
But that’s not all, according to the latest information shared by the company, it now appears that Steam has begun testing wireless support for the controller, looking for full compatibility. Something that undoubtedly stands out, given the previous treatment given to the DualShock 4 of PS4, which never managed to offer this complete compatibility.
On the other hand, it is worth noting that at the moment it is not known how many developers will bring these functions, specially designed for PS5 games, to the PC. We don’t know if we will really have the possibility of taking advantage of the capabilities of the controller in a similar way. However, the speed that Valve has shown to offer this connection undoubtedly generates some expectations.
Unfortunately, these compatibility functions are currently limited to the beta versions of the platform, so if we are not part of this program, we will not have access to them for the moment. However, as we have already seen in Steam, it is likely that we will soon see the implementation of these features for all users in a very short period of time, possibly even before the end of the current year.
Valve tests DualSense wireless support on Steam. And as we saw earlier, the compatibility of the DualSense seemed somewhat limited outside the PS5 itself, limiting its presence in computers so far. This will not be the case anymore.
