Sony To Host PS4 Firmware 4.0 Beta Early Next Month, Sign Ups Now Open


PlayStation Blog brings word of a new and, seemingly, fairly big firmware update headed to PlayStation 4.

Much like 3.00 and 3.50 before it, PS4 users can sign up to participate in the beta program for update 4.0, which is expected to take place in early August. If you’re already a member of said program, you should be good to go. North American readers can find further details of how to partake in the testing here, while those in Europe can toss their proverbial hat into the ring right here.

Ahead of the imminent system update, Sony’s John Koller outlined some pertinent details via PS Blog.

If you’re part of the program, you’ll receive an email with instructions on downloading the beta version of the next system software. In order to sign up, you’ll need a PS4 with an internet connection, and access to a Master Account. And remember — you can roll back to the previous system software, version 3.55, at any time.

PlayStation Forums is your go-to place for new details over the coming weeks, as Sony finalizes the all-new features to be tested in firmware 4.0 ahead of its general release. Previous firmware updates – 3.00 and 3.50 specifically – have introduced exciting new bells and whistles to PS4, including Share Play and the addition of communities.

We’ll be keeping tabs of PlayStation 4‘s all-new firmware update as we approach next month’s beta rollout.
