PS5 In-Game Help From Other Players

Get hints from (or give them to) other PS5 players without leaving whatever game you’re playing.

Sometimes a little hint is all you need to get through a level and move on in your favorite PS5 game, and now PlayStation wants to make that easier for you.

In a blog post on Tuesday, PlayStation announced the addition of Community Game Help to its Game Help center. This addition will let you get hints, tips, and video walkthroughs uploaded or added by other players in the community. However, it appears this feature is only available “in supported games” according to the blog post.

Community Game Help will work in much the same way that Game Help currently works. While playing a game, if you get stuck, you can open the Control Center and choose the Game Help Action Card. There, hints from community members will be displayed with a Community Game Help label to help distinguish them from the hints, tips, and walkthroughs provided by game developers.

If you want to contribute to Community Game Help, you can do that too, by opting into participation in the Settings menu. It’s an auto-capture, though, so you have limited control over what is captured. According to PlayStation, “Once you turn on the settings, your PS5 will automatically capture a video when you complete a certain activity in a game. Then, it will be reviewed by a moderator, and if approved, your video will be published as a Game Help hint for PlayStation players to watch, learn from, and rate.”

You can’t edit the video that’s captured. You also can’t add images, audio from your microphone, or any other kind of audio or video to the capture. But PlayStation says videos captured could contain online IDs or chat messages (which you can’t edit because it’s an auto-capture).

It appears that Community Game Help will be available to PS5 players ” in select games later this year.” There’s no word yet which games those will be, or exactly when “later this year is,” but PlayStation does promise “more details as we get closer to the launch.”
