The PlayStation 5’s DualSense features haptic feedback, Ubisoft will only support the feature on Immortals Fenyx Rising and Watch Dogs: Legion. Ubisoft also confirmed that all the games will feature faster loading times thanks to faster SSDs.
Is important to mention that all of the games announced by Ubisoft are cross-gen titles, this means that even if the games are hardware demanding, they are not designed for next-gen hardware, for example, Xbox mentions that games like Assasin’s Creed Valhalla are optimized for Xbox Series X|S, the cautious choice of words is crucial to handle fans’ expectations.
Both, Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 features not only a more powerful CPU and GPU, but the GDDR6 RAM is lightning fast when compared to the DDR4 RAM featured on PS4 and Xbox One. Features like asset streaming could not be supported on current-gen hardware, and therefore is crucial that Ubisoft fans keep realistic expectations on the games before mentioned.
