PlayStation 4 firmware update 2.5 — also known as Yukimura — is live, and fans will probably be happy to know that it includes the highly anticipated suspend/resume feature. The feature, which was hinted at during the PlayStation 4’s launch window, will now allow players to launch into a game from the very point they left off after booting up the console from rest mode.
Other key features of the update include the ability to fully back up the PlayStation 4’s hard drive to an external storage device, as well as a variety of other social features, such as joining on friends via the “What’s New” section and the ability to search for friends by means of their Facebook profiles.
The ability to remap the PlayStation 4’s controller and larger text have also been included in the update to aid those with visual impairments or limited dexterity. Text-to-speech has been included, too.
You can find the full list of features included in today’s update over at the PlayStation blog.
