How to Update Game on PS4: Two Simple Ways

Go to Library and highlight the game you want to update. Press the OPTIONS button and select Check for Update. If an update is available, follow the instructions to install the update.

Keeping your games updated on your PlayStation 4 is crucial to ensure that you can enjoy the best gaming experience without any glitches or issues. In this article, we’ll show you two simple ways to update your games on your PS4.

Manual Update

The first way is a manual update. Start by going to the game you want to update and press the “options” button on the right side of the screen. The third option down will be “check for updates.” Select it, and if there is an update for the game, it will begin updating when you select it. Press “OK” to continue, and your game will be up to date.

Automatic Update

The second way you can keep your games updated on your PS4 is by turning on automatic downloads. Start by going to “settings,” scrolling all the way down to “system,” and then selecting “automatic downloads.” Make sure the last three options are checked:

– System software update files: If there are any system software updates, your PS4 will automatically update and restart when it is in rest mode.

– Allow restart: Make sure this is check marked. Any automatic updates when the system is in rest mode will require a restart.

– Application update files: This will prompt an update for any games or applications that need it.

By turning on automatic updates, your PS4 will download and install updates for your games and applications overnight, so everything will be updated the next day without you having to do anything.

Stay Connected to the Internet While in Rest Mode

To ensure your PS4 can download and install updates while you’re away, go to “power savings settings” and then “set features available in rest mode.” Make sure “stay connected to the internet while in rest mode” is selected. This will allow your PS4 to download update files, content, and upload saved data when it’s in rest mode.

Rest Mode

Rest mode is a low power mode that will let your PS4 download and install updates while using very little power. To enter rest mode, hold down the PS button, go down to “power,” and select “enter rest mode.” Your PS4 will still be on, and there will be a small orange light on the front of the console. Leaving your PS4 in rest mode for a year will only cost you around $13 or $14.

In conclusion, keeping your games updated on your PS4 is easy and straightforward. With these two simple ways, you can ensure that your games and applications are up to date and ready to play whenever you want.
