Games have hubs on PS5. Each game’s hub collects everything related to that game together, from activities, to community broadcasts, to new game content. It’s a constantly updated space that will evolve and adapt throughout the game’s lifecycle.
Game creators can build their PS5 games so you can jump straight into specific missions, modes, quests, and more straight from the console’s Control Center.
Quickly access frequently used system features, game content, and activities without leaving your gameplay. Simply press the PS button while playing to see the Control Center overlay.
Take on special in-game challenges in supported PS5 games, and share your results with friends on PS5 to see if they can do better. If your friend beats your high score or time, you will get notified and get a chance to beat them right back.
Cross-generation chat with PS4™
Whether your friends are on PS4 or PS5, cross-generation voice chat means everyone can keep the conversation going with their account for PlayStation™Network. You can even chat with players on mobile devices who have PlayStation App.
Game creators now have the option to enable online multiplayer game matches between PS5 and PS4 players1. PS4 players can be seamlessly invited to play with PS5 players, and vice versa.
Players can choose saved game presets for all supported games, like inverted y-axis and subtitles.
Organize your game collection into personalized Gamelists. You can group your favourite disc, digital or streaming titles* or genres together in lists that you can name and access via the ‘Your Collection’ tab of the game library.
Chat with friends, get the latest gaming news, and download games to your console from PlayStation Store by using PlayStation App. You can even manage your PS5 console storage remotely, so you’ll always be ready for your next gaming adventure.2
