New PlayStation 5 Update Introduces Long-Awaited Feature

New PlayStation 5 Update Introduces Long-Awaited Feature

Better late than never

A brand-new system software update has been launched for the PlayStation 5, and it comes with a major new feature that will come as a welcome surprise for the more competitive gamers out there.

The new PS5 patch, which is available to download and install right now, introduces the ability for players to adjust the console's auto low latency mode (ALLM) settings.

As per the patch notes, if you're using a TV that supports ALLM, you can adjust the settings by heading to Settings (shockingly enough). From here, select Screen and Video, then Video Output, then ALLM. Easy.

This is a handy, if niche, change that will let players exercise some more control over when and how ALLM works, but it's worth pointing out again: it'll only work if your TV supports an auto low latency mode.

The new options themselves are fairly self explanatory. Automatic will change your TV to low-latency mode instantly while gaming. Meanwhile, Off will, unsurprisingly, disable ALLM.

That's pretty much all the latest update does, outside of the usual improved system performance. You can read more about the new system software update via Sony's patch notes.

Earlier this year PlayStation rolled out a shiny new VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) feature, with games like Marvel's Spider-Man RemasteredCall Of Duty: VanguardResident Evil Village, and more all enhanced to take advantage of the update.
