The PlayStation 5 bought a brand new replace in the present day, which was accompanied by affirmation that VRR (variable refresh charge) assist could be coming to the PS5 in a future console replace. That is excellent news for the way forward for Sony’s console, however it appears to have include a problematic bug: PS5 consoles are unable to make use of on-line options after putting in the replace, as observed by VGC.
Gamers started reporting this situation shortly after the replace turned obtainable to obtain. As of the time of writing, any PS5 that has put in the replace is unable to play video games that require a web based connection, together with the vast majority of Gran Turismo 7, all of Future 2, GTA On-line, and extra.
The difficulty solely at the moment appears to be affecting video games that require PlayStation Plus subscriptions for on-line play. Apex Legends, for instance, works completely because it doesn’t require a PlayStation Plus subscription with a purpose to play on-line.
For those who at the moment try to play video games that do require a PlayStation Plus subscription, nonetheless. GTA On-line, for instance, shall be unable to hook up with Rockstar’s servers. Elden Ring, in the meantime, will state that it can not confirm your PS+ subscription as the sport begins, stopping PVP battles, bloodstains, and people “useful” messages.
Hopefully this can be a short-term situation and Sony may have an answer prepared inside a couple of days, as at the moment this can be a enormous inconvenience for PlayStation Plus subscribers who pay for these advantages.
