PS4 firmware 2.02 now available to 'improve system software stability'

New, 24 comments

Sony released system software update 2.02 for the PlayStation 4 today, and the 217 MB patch is meant to "improve system software stability during use of some features, games, and apps," the company announced on Twitter last night.

Firmware 2.02 follows closely on the heels of version 2.01, which arrived about a week after the major features in update 2.0 began causing problems with PS4 consoles and specific games like Evolve's Big Alpha. Electronic Arts' Dragon Age: Inquisition was also affected by firmware 2.0. In our experience, firmware 2.01 helped the severe crashing problems the game was suffering from under v2.0, and an EA representative also confirmed to Polygon that developer BioWare will release its own patch to fix the issues prior to Inquisition's launch on Nov. 18.

We've reached out to EA to ask if PS4 firmware 2.02 offers any further improvements to Inquisition's current state of affairs, and will update this article with any information we receive. We're also conducting our own tests. For more on Dragon Age: Inquisition, check out our full review.
