In conjunction with the publication of the trailer on the PS5 features of Hogwarts Legacy, Chandler Wood, community manager of WB Games Avalanche, therefore wanted to deepen the question a lot and reveal everything about the version PlayStation 5 of the game.
“A sorceress or wizard should never run without a wand, so in Hogwarts Legacy the controller DualSense of PlayStation 5 will become aextension of your wand“Wood wrote.” You will have plenty of magic at your disposal and the adaptive triggers will give you more flexibility in combat.
“With each spell you will feel the magic resistance, whether it is a simple spell or a spell that requires a greater expenditure of energy. Thanks to the direct connection between the DualSense controller and the wand provided by haptic feedback, each magic will offer a unique sensory experience. “
“We specially isolated these effects on the right side of the controller to make DualSense an extension of the wand used in the game. And when you deflect a spell with Protego, you will be able to hear the crackle of the spell deflected and absorbed by the magical shield. “
“However, the use of adaptive triggers and haptic feedback is not limited to casting spells and the wand. The DualSense controller will allow you to try various experiences in the course of events around the game world. ”

“You will mash ingredients with mortar and pestle during Potions class, you will hear the cry of a Mandrake seed and even sail the skies on the back of a broom or a hippogriff. DualSense will be your link to magic on PS5. “
“We also took advantage of the LED lights DualSense to offer you a unique touch of personalization. When not blinking from spells cast or damage taken, the DualSense lights will pulsate with the colors of your Hogwarts house: blue and bronze for Ravenclaw, gold and scarlet for Gryffindor, green and silver for Slytherin, and black and yellow for Hufflepuff . “
