In the hopes of giving players more flexibility, Sony has launched a new add-on for its Dualshock 4 controller.

The add-on, called the Dualshock 4 Back Button Attachment, is aimed at players of all skill levels who enjoy playing competitively.

In a blog announcing the add-on, Ike Nnoli, Peripherals Global Marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment, said: “This new attachment elevates your gameplay by delivering more versatility and performance, while maintaining the comfort and feel of the Dualshock 4 wireless controller you’ve come to love.”

The add-on features two programmable and tactile back buttons, that can map  up to 16 different actions.

The attachment also features an integrated OLED display, that provides real-time information around button assignments.

Meanwhile, a dedicated button allows you to remap back button inputs while you play.

Mr Nnoji explained: “A dedicated button allows you to remap back button inputs on the fly, so you are always prepared no matter what game you’re playing.
