“Swipe your thumb up on the touchpad and you’ll charge like a battering ram into a group of helpless enemies”. It’s not much but it’s the first time a developer’s mentioned anything about using the PS4 Dualshock’s touchpad. Swiping? Who knew?
Warframe on PS4 makes mention of Touchpad controls
Digital Extremes co-op shooter, Warframe, sees the Tenno, a race of space ninjas, fighting a range of online mission in procedurally generated maps. It’s free-to-play with real cash micro-transactions letting you get new gear quicker than you would with in-game money. The key piece of kit are the warframes, sets of armour that give you different abilities.
The game’s promising 1080p and an E3 showing next week. HOwever, here’s what Digital Extremes’ project lead Steve Sinclair has to say about the controls:
“I love the DualShock 4. The triggers feel awesome and the touch pad is a sweet addition. Right now, we’re using the touch pad to activate your crazy Warframe powers on the run with a flick of your thumb or finger. Want to lunge and smash with your Rhino Warframe? Swipe your thumb up on the touch pad and you’ll charge like a battering ram into a group of helpless enemies.”
