A brand new System Software Update was deployed for all PS5 consoles earlier today (October 20) and comes with further stability improvements for the next-gen piece of hardware.

Sony’s lucrative PS5 is still hard to come by, but if you’ve been lucky enough to get your hands on the almost one-year-old console, you’ve got a fresh update to install the next time you log on.

Unlike the huge system update that was deployed in September, fans won’t notice any new features or changes in today’s update. Check out the full patch notes and details for the October 20 PS5 System Software Update right here in this article.
