Here’s a dilemma we face every day here at Push Square: a lot of articles get written about Sony’s console, many of them by prestigious websites, but delve deeper into the story and, well, it’s not always what it first seems. We have a responsibility to be accurate, but also a lot of these reports pick up pace among those with a less critical eye. So, what do we do?
This is one of those articles that’s gone big over the past 24 hours: Naughty Dog was, apparently, at one point, working on a PlayStation 5 patch for The Last of Us: Part II. Well, that’s not particularly surprising really, is it? Ghost of Tsushima also got a massive upgrade for the next-gen console, and only released one month after Ellie’s sophomore outing.
Here’s the rub, though: the source is a user called Navtra on ResetEra. Apparently this member accurately predicted portions of last year’s PS5 Showcase, so that’s where their credibility comes from – but even they don’t seem certain about what’s going on with Naughty Dog’s exclusive. “I know a patch was in the works at some point but I'm not sure if it's still happening or when,” they wrote.
So this is, ultimately, a nothing story – the source is already suspect, but even if they were 100 per cent reliable, it’s not really confirmation of anything. Incidentally, the same poster also reckons an extended edition of Death Stranding is due out on PS5 at some point this year. While both of these rumours could turn out to be true, we’d approach all of these reports with strong scepticism.

She also predicted that FFXVI would be shown in September and be a console exclusive but even the best insider can be wrong. Especially because plans can change fast
I finished it this weekend on PS5. Would be great if it at least gets 60 fps for future players for the rest it already looks quite great.
Ahh id love to hear some factions news!
With the ps plus collection, I was expecting all games on that list, well definitely the Sony produced games to have ps5 patches to show off what the ps5 can do.
I hope they do a crossover with Everybody's Golf. Abby could be a character in that game; and TLOU2 gets a golf cart for the open world section.
I kinda baffled at the lack of native PS5 patches for their exclusives, yeah Days Gone and Ghost of Tsushima run at 60fps but you do feel they can get more out of the machine.
I’ve thought all along that the PS5 upgraded edition will be packaged in with the release of Factions Multiplayer mode. I have no source to point to, just gut instinct. I also think it will cost an upgrade fee, like DLC, but maybe they’ll feel pressure from Ghost of Tsushima’s free Legends mode and PS5 upgrade. I still figure there will be a PS5 GOTY bundle with the Factions included that will be put on sale and that PS4 game owners will have to purchase the upgrade and mode, but I could be wrong (especially given the recent situation with Control and the debacle behind its PS5 upgrade situation)
Yea would love a ps5 upgrade as I played on base ps4 it looked amazing on that tbh, but think it would be amazing on ps5 with a few upgrades. I think they might do it when the factions is released. Have been tempted since getting ps5 to put it on but finished it twice already, so think maybe give it another blast later in year hopefully with upgrade.
@Th3solution I have a strong feeling that Naughty Dog is going all out with Factions. They touched on settlement building and management with the first, and I expect them to expand greatly on that.
Uncharted 4 multiplayer was bundled with The Lost Legacy, I’m wondering if they will do the same with Factions, just in reverse.
@Jimmer-jammer Yeah, I agree.
they should be concentrating on that rather than a multiplayer
@Th3solution As much as I'd like Factions II (or whatever its name is gonna be) to be a free addition to Part II, I highly doubt it'll ever happen. And I wouldn't compare it to Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. Legends was a small (however very enjoyable) addition that receives no further updates/content. I'd hate for Factions to be as small as Legends.
But I do expect it to be bundled with the main game. Especially given the size of Part II itself and the fact that there are repeating assets in the game (characters, guns, locations, etc.)
In the end, I can't wait for Factions II. Really curious to see how it turns out.
I'd be interested to know what's going on with the MP game (which they said is a different game) . Weird that there is no news about it. Rumours of rumours of some patch shouldnt really be news though. And about every you tuber and their mother predicted FF16.
Hopefully there will be a PS5 update Still not had time to play it(+ Death Stranding which is rumoured to be getting a update to) The only thing that is disappointing with most of the PS4 to PS5 updates is any lack of Dualsense features support Last gen games seem FLAT after playing Astro's Playroom really. Oh well.
