Blizzard states Diablo 2 Resurrected will take advantage of PS5 DualSense features like haptic feedback.

Since UnGeek reports, Blizzard's Robert Gallerani and Diablo 2 Resurrected Items Maxine Virtue comprehensive the studio's plans for Diablo 2 Resurrected DualSense support through a press roundtable at BlizzCon 2021. Though the developers did not delve much into particulars, Gallerani all but supported haptic feedback for the coming Diablo 2 remaster.

"We're working on how we would like to use [the DualSense], however, the haptic feedback on the control is a really exciting thing, and so we want to make sure that we use that," Gallerani said.

The DualSense's haptic feedback feature is essentially an advanced rumble pack designed to boost immersion by imitating the effects and feeling of different surfaces and items. For example, walking in a match should feel gritty, while firing off shotgun rounds should send spaced-out pulses to your palms.

Gallerani also detailed some of the ways Diablo 2 Resurrected is well suited for controller support more generally, confirming the remaster will include a cursor function for gamepads.

"In the first game, the Sorceress' teleport operates by clicking wherever you desire. Wherever you click, then that's where you are teleporting to. When you're using the controller, you don't have a cursor, so once you teleport with all the Sorceress we've got a default distance for the teleport - some of those motions we do this. By way of instance, a Blood Golem from a Necromancer will always spawn where you want it to. Whereas some moves we really permit you to hold a button down, and you then get a cursor."

It is scheduled to Buy Diablo 2 Items launch PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Nintendo Switch sometime in 2021.
