Syphon Filter is getting a highly requested PS5 update

Syphon Filter is getting a highly requested PS5 update

And it's only six months late.

Syphon Filter is getting a new lease of life on PlayStation 5 with an update that improves its visuals significantly.

If you find yourself daydreaming of a new Syphon Filter game, shoot those notions down. Watch the inferno plummet to earth like a stone. Walk away from the explosion with one solitary tear rolling down your cheek. Because, my comrades, it is always the person you would least expect.

Following the critical and commercial performance of Days Gone, the developer struggled to convince Sony of a sequel. However, Sony did ask if the team would be interested in reviving any other IPs, including Syphon Filter. "I have zero ideas on how to reboot Syphon Filter," said director Jeff Ross earlier this year and he added that he suspected that the potential Syphon Filter pitch was a strategy to take Bend Studio off the publisher's back about Days Gone 2.

Spicy. Well, we do now have Syphon Filter on the PS5 thanks to PlayStation Plus Premium, so that's something. And this recent update upgrades the visuals from the PAL 50Hz version to the American NTSC 60Hz version, which was a factor that was disappointing to those who had waited for a fresh playthrough of the classic game. Sure it was... six months late, but this definitely makes a major change to the experience of playing Syphon Filter in 2022.

The PlayStation Plus Premium Classic Game Catalog holds a treasure trove, like Ape Escape, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, Resident Evil: Director’s Cut, No Heroes Allowed!, Red Faction and Red Faction 2, and more. It's a cheering showing from Sony that has occasionally forgotten to preserve its collection of excellent games.
