New functionality detailed ahead of sign-up going live
We are getting ready to test an update to the Party function on PlayStation 4, and can use some help from PS4 owners!
Soon you will be able to sign up for a chance to participate in the Preview Program for an advance look at the new Party features.
UPDATE: Registration is now live, you can sign up right here!
Once you have joined, you can expect to see the following updates to Party:
- Increased maximum Party participants from 8 to 16
- Improved audio quality for voice chat
- Improved network connectivity
Do note, that if you participate in the Preview Program, you won’t be able to join the same Party or use Share Play with others who aren’t participating in the program.
However, the preview code we’ll be providing can be redeemed by 20 different qualifying accounts, so share the code with your friends and try out the new Party updates together! Once you participate in the Preview Program, Parties that you’re able to join will have an asterisk (*) in front of the Party name.
Many thanks to everyone who signs up! Your feedback helps us make our feature updates even better*.
*Features and changes in Preview Program are not final, with no fixed release date, and subject to change without notice.
