PlayStation 5 finally launches in the rest of the world tomorrow, November 19, but Sony has just released a fresh firmware download for PS4.
Dubbed PS4 Software 8.01, the patch notes aren't very descriptive – something common among Sony updates in recent years.
Here's all we know.
PS4 Firmware 8.01 Patch Notes Revealed Ahead Of PS5 Launch In All Territories
"An update to the system software for PlayStation 4 systems was released on 18/11/2020. You can use this to update your system software to version 8.01."
"Always update your PS4 system to the latest version of the system software. By updating, you can enjoy additional features, improved usability and enhanced security."
- This system software update improves system performance.
Yep, that's it – that's all the patch notes.
Version 8.00 made sweeping changes to the Party and Message systems but was not without issues.
Despite the PS5 having launched in many territories already, it's good to see Sony continuing to refine the PS4.
Interestingly, Sony also issued a firmware update for the new console earlier this week, with many fans hoping it'll fix some of the "rest mode" issues that have been causing players issues.
