Astro's Playroom PS5

Yes, that's right — a new update has been released for Astro's Playroom, the brilliant PlayStation 5 pack-in title. It's available to download and install now, taking the game to version 01.700.000. In case you were wondering, this patch comes almost a full year since the previous update to the game.

So, what does this new update do? Well, we've yet to track down the official patch notes, but a few people online purportedly know what's included. Here's what the patch allegedly does:

  • Added performance improvements.
  • Added gameplay optimizations.
  • Fixed an issue that caused framerate drops.
  • Added various stability improvements.
  • Fixed sporadic crashes.
  • Addressed audio related issues.
  • Other minor bug fixes.

Weighing in at 158MB, it's only a small patch, so it won't take you very long to get the game updated. To be honest, we're not sure how the game could be better optimised; it's got to be one of the cleanest, least buggy games we've played in recent memory. Still, developer Team Asobi is clearly a talented bunch, and we're happy to see a great game improved even further.
