PlayStation has announced it’ll be dropping it’s second major system update for the PlayStation 5 globally tomorrow, September 15.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the update includes several much-requested features. Chief among these is finally allowing owners to expand their console’s storage with a M.2 Solid State Drive. Once installed, users will be able to download, copy, move and launch PS5 and PS4 games and media apps directly from the drive. These drives must meet specific requirements, however, and you can read more on that along with full instructions here.
Elsewhere, the update includes several PlayStation 5 UX enhancements. These include Enhanced Game Bases, Control Center customisation and Screen Reader controls. It’ll also now be easier to see if you have the PlayStation 5 or PS4 versions of a game installed.
Other updates include ‘Personal Best’ videos and a new ‘Leader’ accolade to earn on your profile. There’s also the new addition of 3D Audio Support through standard television speakers. Previously, this feature was primarily available through the official Pulse headset, which also gets an update in the form of access to a new equaliser settings control panel.
Finally, the update also includes some enhancements for the PlayStation mobile app, as well as some new features for the PlayStation 4. These include the ability to see your and your friends’ PlayStation 5 trophies on your PlayStation 4 console.
The update will roll out globally on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles from tomorrow. Check out a video detailing the new PlayStation 5 September Update for yourself down below.
