“THIS ISSUE WE GET OUR FIRST SIGHT OF DUALSENSE, SONY’S SUPERB NEXT-GEN PAD.” These are strange times: you’re being actively encouraged to stay in and stay glued to your PS4. We’re in the same situation. Even so, it’s not holding back the launch of PS5. This issue we get our first sight of the DualSense controller, and Sony’s superb next-gen pad is a work of art. On p46 we detail the tech, discover what devs think, and learn how it will change the way we play. There’s more PS5 news on p16 as we chat to the developer behind Quantum Error, the PS4- and PS5-exclusive shooter with a leaning towards horror storytelling. Back on your sofa, if life inside is getting to you, we offer a glimmer of hope with a roundup of…

01 opm readers are social distancing in serious style

“THE PREDICTABLE RULES GAME WORLDS FOLLOW CAN BE COMFORTING IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES.” Sony’s Play At Home initiative offers us all free games (see p19), but many PlayStation owners were browsing their game libraries long before that was announced in mid-April. Between 5 March and 5 April, Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 20, and 2019’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare all saw massive increases in new players – and they were far from the only ones. According to Gamstat.com, which bases its estimates on data drawn from the PSN API, Modern Warfare was the clear winner during this period with over 16,000,000 new players. Plenty of other battle royales enjoyed huge increases too, but it was recent PS Plus inclusion Sonic Forces that ranked second to COD with 4,000,000 new players. That’s…

02 have a little hope, as a threat

The next instalment in Supermassive’s Dark Pictures frightfest will debut this summer, and this one’s got a witchy twist. Whereas Man Of Medan saw you lost at sea alongside Shawn Ashmore, this time British actor Will Poulter is taking the lead in a dual role. “HORROR IS JUST A GREAT PLAYGROUND FOR US.” You may already know Poulter from folk horror smash Midsommar and Netflix’s dark branching narrative… thing, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. Here he plays a student stranded after a field trip goes awry. Time-travel shenanigans introduce each of the undergrads to Puritan doppelgängers and a plot spanning centuries. Seemingly at the centre of it all is a little girl with a creepy doll made out of needles. CHILD’S PLAY We waste no time asking Supermassive’s managing director Pete Samuels and series producer Dan…

03 observer detected for playstation 5

Bloober Team delivered one of PlayStation’s best cyberpunk games back in 2017, and now Observer is coming to PS5 in the Observer: System Redux edition. The game will feature upgraded graphics, sound, and new narrative cases for the next-gen edition. “WE EXPECT SYSTEM REDUX TO DELIVER A UNIQUE NEXT-GEN EXPERIENCE.” In a future where people can augment themselves with tech, a viral plague has decimated the upgraded population. War followed and both Eastern and Western civilisations were shattered. As the world was on its knees corporations took control and will now do anything to retain their steely grip on power. Dan Lazarski is a detective, an ‘Observer’, and his role is to maintain the status quo. Using his ability to hack into suspects’ minds to uncover the truth he soon finds himself spiralling…
