The DualSense includes a larger battery than the DualShock 4 and uses Adaptive Triggers and Haptic Feedback for more immersive gameplay. While it's unclear what third-party support will look like, teams at Sony Worldwide Studios working on games like Horizon Forbidden West and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will likely use all these new features. The PS5 and the DualSense are both expected to launch at some point in Holiday 2020.
