Drifting Will be Easier in Gran Turismo 7 Thanks to DualSense ABS Feedback

The Gran Turismo series is known for the incredible visuals, but we often forget the hidden innovations that the series implements. This time around the DualSense’s haptic feedback is going to convey more to the player than ever before.

A recent quote from the president of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi stated the following:

I think the most effective use of the adaptive trigger [in Gran Turismo 7] is for representing the operation of the antilock brake system (ABS) while braking. A typical ABS releases brake pressure intermittently while the driver applies pressure to the pedal. The adaptive trigger is suited for recreating this pedal feel, and it will allow the player to accurately feel and understand the relationship between the braking force they want and the tire’s grip.

Compared to the rumble force feedback we had in the past, the special character of the haptic feedback is that it has a bigger range of frequencies it can produce.

What this means, is that sound design and tactile design can be handled in a continuous, integrated manner.

So the data that the adaptive triggers will to the player will make it easier to know when your car is going to lose control. This means those drifts could get a lot more intuitive!
