PS4 Update 2.5 Launching Tomorrow With These Features.

Sony’s upcoming software update for the PlayStation 4 will include a number of “social enhancements” to beef up its online network of gamers, the company revealed on Wednesday.Sony’s upcoming “Yukimura” update for PlayStation 4 brings the console one magic power that many players have been eager to get their hands on: The ability to suspend game play and resume play right where you left off after putting the console into Rest Mode and then waking it up again.

Tomorrow is the day many PlayStation 4 gamers have been waiting for, as Sony has announced the impending arrival of system udpate 2.5, also known as Yukimura. Software update version 2.50, which Sony has codenamed “Yukimura,” will be out Thursday with a bundle of new features, including a friend finder that enables gamers to search for Facebook friends within the Sony network and connect with a single-step invite. Now then, you’re probably looking to know more about your console’s next big system update, which will be… yeah, I did say in the headline that it’ll be out tomorrow. You could back up saved data previously, but only to USB flash drives and everything else had to be re-downloaded from PlayStation’s servers if you ever needed to do a factory reset or set up a brand new console. To start, the update, system software update 2.50, is codenamed “Yukimura”, and it will introduce features both requested and unexpected designed to make the console experience “more streamlined and enjoyable”, according to Sony’s informative PlayStation Blog post.

The PlayStation Network is also taking a page from Twitter’s book, introducing new verified accounts; a badge on select accounts will let you see when you’re playing against certain game developers. This was not a super fun process, as I can personally attest, and being able to quickly load up your entire system as it had been from a mobile SSD should really help. This feature was promised when the PS4 was first announced and, over a year following the console’s launch, it looks like we’re finally getting it. While the feature won’t work for all games (I’m guessing online games are a no-go, for instance), this feature will allow you to just put the PS4 into sleep mode while playing a game, then boot right back up into the game the next time you turn the system on.

You can now share your Trophy info via FB, Twitter or Message from the Share button menu, and Sony ha also added customization options for Dualshock 4 button layout, text-to-speech and graphical display options for accessibility benefits. Remote Play and Share Play**: For games that support 60 fps, users will be able to stream those games with 60 fps for both Remote Play and Share Play on supported devices. Come tomorrow, it will be easier to find your Facebook friends, send Friend and Real Name requests together at once, create parties and see who among your friends are playing which games. New social features are also a big part of Yukimura’s lineup, including a Facebook friend finder, improved friend request functionality, a streamlined Party system and more. Trophies, too, will be optimized in several ways, giving you more convenient ways to manage your trophies and share your in-game achievements with the world.

Verified Accounts: Verified accounts for game industry professionals, including developers, producers, designers and community managers will appear with a badge. You can also search for new friends based on what games people play, or join current friends in the middle of a game simply by clicking on their latest tab in the news feed.

A writer, journalist, and aspiring storyteller, Peter Grimm has been gaming since the days of the Nintendo 64, and reporting on the goings-on in the World of Gaming since late 2011. You can have the console automatically take a screenshot when you earn a trophy, as well as share their Trophy information directly to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Finally, sub-accounts can now be upgraded to master accounts, you can set updates to download and install automatically, and industry professionals can now have their accounts “Verified,” so you know you’re not being scammed by a rando.
