The new generation of consoles has been a little short on compelling reasons to upgrade. Deathloop makes the argument more eloquently than perhaps any other. It’s beautiful, of course, and the design has a rare newness to it, but most of all it’s how the game leverages the PS5 DualSense’s features. Julianna’s radio calls come through the built-in speaker crystal clear, while haptic feedback and trigger resistance are used to lend extra character to each weapon. Charging up a shot with the nailgun and feeling the cranking of its inner mechanisms against our palm might be enough to make PS5 the definitive way to play Deathloop. Precisely what Bethesda’s new parent company wants to hear, we’re sure.
