Tekken 8

2 players | Local competitive

Throw down with iconic characters in the latest entry of this legendary fighting game series. Take advantage of this instalment’s Heat System, which can be activated once per round for powerful special moves. The optional Special Style mode maps combos to single buttons, making it a great option for beginners, while the classic arcade combat Tekken is known for is there to enjoy for experienced fans.

DualSense features: Haptic feedback means you feel every blow in Tekken 8, and each destructible environment as it’s smashed apart. Visual details like bulging veins and flushed skin, triggered in real time, working alongside 3D audio throughout battles, give Tekken 8 a level of immersion like no entry before it.

Fortnite

2 players | Local co-op

If you’re yet to try Fortnite’s split-screen co-op mode, there’s no better place than on PS5 with a pair of DualSense wireless controllers. Not only will you dive into a more visually polished experience (up to 4K and 60FPS on a compatible TV), but your controller lets you feel the games in all new ways.

DualSense features: All your favourite weapons come alive with a distinct feel every time you pull the trigger. A sniper rifle has a different trigger response to a pistol or SMG, while weapons that require you to hold down the trigger bring the controller to life with sustained haptic feedback at varying intensities. 

EA SPORTS FC 24

Powered by three new technologies – HyperMotionV, PlayStyles and the enhanced Frostbite Engine – EA SPORTS FC 24 is the most realistic virtual version of football EA’s series has ever seen. Take on an array of game modes including a managerial career and Ultimate Team, and control over 19,000 licensed players across 700 teams.

DualSense features: Feel every strike, tackle, through ball and more with the controller’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. 3D audio puts players right there on the pitch, in the middle of stadiums full of thousands of fans, and the PS5’s ultra-high speed SSD makes loading times near-instant.

It Takes Two

2 players | Local co-op 

Invite a friend to embark on a genre-bending platform adventure created purely for two. Work together in split-screen play as clashing couple Cody and May, two humans turned into dolls by a magic spell and forced to reluctantly mend their fractured relationship to escape a fantastical and unpredictable world. In It Takes Two, working together is the only way forward.

NBA 2K23

2-4 players | Local competitive & co-op

DualSense features: As your players tire, sprinting with the adaptive triggers becomes more difficult. Smaller or weaker players will also have a harder time backing down larger opponents with the triggers, and vice versa, while every collision from a grazing bump to a hard-hitting body check is reflected in your hands thanks to haptic feedback. 

Gran Turismo 7

2 players | Local competitive

Go head-to-head and prove you're the best driver on the track in Gran Turismo 7, the newest GT entry featuring the very best of the Real Driving Simulator as well as stunning PS5 visuals. Blazing fast load times brings quick starts to races and seamless navigation between GT7's modes and menus.

DualSense features: Thanks to the DualSense controller's adaptive triggers, drivers can sense the vibrations from the anti-lock brake system and wheel spins, making you feel as if you’re holding the steering wheel of a real car. Whether it's the subtle bumps of the tarmac or the grooves of the curb, immersive haptic feedback allows you to feel your position on the road.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure

2-4 players | Local co-op

Staking an early claim to be the most charming platformer of the new generation, Sackboy’s quest to save Craftworld can be enjoyed with another three Knitted Knights on the same PS5 console. You can play through the whole adventure together or hit the dedicated teamwork levels in every world, where you’ll need to cooperate and communicate to reach the goal.

DualSense features: Haptic feedback means that each part of Craftworld’s terrain feels different under Sackboy’s woolly feet, while each bump you take – or inflict on a pal – will buzz through the controller.

Dirt 5

The DIRT franchise has long been a source of some of the most exhilarating multiplayer modes in the racing genre, and DIRT 5 does not disappoint. The game offers split-screen action for up to four players locally, resulting in epic races on over 70 incredible global tracks. Simply choose from any route, pick your machine, and jump straight into the action.

Want to team up instead of face-off? DIRT 5’s Career mode also supports split-screen play, meaning you and up to three teammates can take part in Career events to own the competition and earn extra rewards, as you progress through the story-driven mode.

DualSense features: Rally driving is a rough business and you’ll feel each bump and dip through your controller, while the triggers adapt the acceleration and braking control depending on the track.

Overcooked! All You Can Eat

2-4 players | Local competitive & co-op

A smorgasbord of hilarity awaits as the original Overcooked, its sequel and all DLC packs come together to serve up one of the tastiest party gaming experiences on PS5. You and your fellow chefs are tasked with working together to prepare a range of dishes and keep your diners happy. Sounds simple, right? But when the ingredients start to fly, pots boil over and there’s a rat in the kitchen, things really start heating up.

DualSense features: Haptic feedback lets you feel where in the kitchen the action is happening, as well as alerting you to burning food, while the controller’s speaker amplifies the kitchen chaos with bleeping alarms and countdowns as the pressure ramps up.

Madden NFL 23

Take to the field with up to three friends in local competitive and cooperative game modes. The DualSense wireless controller brings the full force of the gridiron into the palms of your hands.

DualSense features: Feel every hit all through your controller as the DualSense wireless controller's haptic feedback vibrates from every angle. The jolt of the quarterback taking a shotgun snap or the change in trigger resistance depending on whether the ball carrier is sprinting or smashing through the defensive line is also palpable. Additionally, the DualSense wireless controller’s built-in speaker broadcasts the plays as they're called out at the line of scrimmage or as the play clock runs down.

WRC 10 FIA World Rally Championship

2 players | Local competitive

Challenge a friend to an off-road race and relive the championship's storied 50-year history in WRC 10. Each driver’s DualSense wireless controller adds even greater realism to this incredibly detailed driving sim, and when the head-to-head tension builds, who wins could come down to a test of nerves across the rugged terrain.

DualSense features: The adaptive triggers allow WRC 10's hyper-realistic and ultra-precise physics engine to flourish, as the controller responds to your acceleration and braking while weaving in and out of bends, while haptic feedback works overtime to mimic the feeling inside a rally car. The gearbox clicks in your hands with every change, getting more pronounced as your car takes bumps, while every bang and clatter of the terrain reverberates through your hands, letting you know when you’re straying off course – aided by the clatter of stones beneath your vehicle that ring out through the controller’s speaker.
