PS4 remote play is coming to PC and Mac sooner than you think

Last November, GR reported (opens in new tab) that Sony was working on a Remote Play app update for PS4 which would enable you to play console favourites such as Bloodborne, The Last Of Us Remastered and The Order: 1886 (lulz!) on PC and Mac – and today the publisher has confirmed it's imminent. "We’re bringing PS4 Remote Play to Windows PC and Mac… you can look forward to it soon," it confirms on the PlayStation blog (opens in new tab).

How imminent? Hard to pinpoint, if we're entirely honest. PC and Mac remote play will form part of PlayStation 4 update version 3.50 – codename MASUSHI – a beta for which opens tomorrow. The catch being that remote play, although definitely coming, is not part of the beta.

Features that will be available to those who signed up to the beta for testing ahead of 3.50's proper deployment include notifications of when a friend comes online, the ability to appear offline while remaining signed into PSN, and functionality to schedule events with friends in a party.

Livestreaming to Dailymotion also forms part of the 3.50 update, but like remote play does not currently feature in its beta plans.

I'm GamesRadar's sports editor, and obsessed with NFL, WWE, MLB, AEW, and occasionally things that don't have a three-letter acronym – such as Chvrches, Bill Bryson, and Streets Of Rage 4. (All the Streets Of Rage games, actually.) Even after three decades I still have a soft spot for Euro Boss on the Amstrad CPC 464+.
