Sony has recently announced a new PS4 Update. This “major” system software update is announced through a PlayStation blog post. But, Sony did not reveal any information about it just yet.
To recall, the first big update of PlayStation is the 4.00 update back in September 2016. The current update is called 4.5 which will bring more some “improvements and new features.” With this, beta testers can sign up starting today until early February.
Like what they did for their 4.00 and other updates, Sony is currently searching for interested people to be beta testers, Game Informer reported. This is to test the update before it rolls out for everyone to use. Doing this will help Sony spot possible glitches and errors that need attention.
How You Can Be A Beta Tester
If you are one of those interested people who would like to be a beta tester, the steps are simple. One needs to register in order to have access to the beta. A PSN-ID should be submitted to acquire access. It is important that a working email is attached to the PSN ID since this is how Sony will notify those who are chosen to be a beta tester for the PS4 update.
But not everyone could qualify. Only those who are 18 years old and older could apply. And of course, not everyone will be allowed to beta test the current PS4 update. There are also no guarantees if an applicant will be selected.
The beta will begin in early February. As it starts, Sony will cut off new registrations. As for the arrival of the PS4 4.5 update, there is no confirmed release date yet.
