How Fortnite Uses The PS5 DualSense Controller

Epic Games has shared some new details on the PlayStation 5 version of Fortnite, which will be available when the console releases later this week.

  • Traditionally, PlayStation controllers have been gray or black when the console is launched
  • More variants and special edition controllers could follow based on game-specific releases

Almost from the moment the white DualSense controller for the PlayStation 5 was unveiled in April, fans had begun wondering what it would look like in black. However, they may not need to wonder any longer.

A series of tweets from @welltest789, first spotted by VGC, has revealed what an all-black controller will look like.

Due to the numerous fakes that have popped up since April, legitimacy was, of course, the first question regarding these images. However, the Twitter user attached the listing from the United States’ Federal Communications Commission, which published the new photos showing the black PS5 DualSense controller.
