In a new interview on the Playstation Blog, Alistair Hope revealed a new feature that will take advantage of the Dualshock 4 PS4 controller.
While playing Alien: Isolation, players will constantly be checking their motion tracker to keep a tab on where the Alien is located. However, The Creative Assembly is tacking on a new feature that will utilize the DualShock 4’s light bar at the top of the controller.
While playing, the light bar will “mirror the signal on the motion tracker – it flashes in-sync with the motion tracker’s ping, increasing in frequency as the Alien approaches,” explains Hope. He continues on to say that the feature is, “especially effecting when you’re playing in the dark.”
Definitely a cool addition in my opinion that will only add to the player’s immersion while playing Alien: Isolation. Just make sure you have a good sound system and complete darkness and maybe a few extra pairs of underpants just in case.
The release date for Alien: Isolation will be revealed at EGX Rezzed in just a few days time. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get all the latest info on Alien: Isolation and other single player titles. Check out our Most Anticipated video for Alien: Isolation just below.
