The first live-action trailer for the forthcoming Playstation 5 has been released. While the trailer shows no gameplay footage, an official spot on the Playstation Blog explains that the trailer “showcases some of the immersive gameplay you will experience on the new PS5 console.”
According to Mary Yee, Vice President of Global Marketing at Sony, the new trailer demonstrates “the new console’s features come to life through a young woman’s eyes and her movements.”
The trailer flaunts the most key features from the next-gen console, including haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and 3D audio. Detailing the mechanics of haptic feedback, Yee cites that “the sudden explosive reveal of the Kraken from the icy surface showcases the haptic feedback sensation you can feel from DualSense™ wireless controller.”
The trailer explores the console’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, describing how the sound will come “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”.
At the end of the trailer, as the woman draws back her bow, the blog describes “the tension of her bowstring” as “a sensation you’ll also feel, made possible through the DualSense wireless controller’s adaptive triggers.”
The PS5 is scheduled for release this Holiday 2020, alongside its main competitor, the Xbox Series X.
