Sony has begun to roll out the PlayStation 4's 2.02 firmware, the second such patch designed to remedy problems associated with its buggy 2.00 update.

The 217MB file is now available in the UK, with a North American roll-out expected to follow imminently. In the early hours of Tuesday, the PlayStation Twitter account said the update is coming "soon" for all users.

No detailed patch notes came with the update, though Sony said the new system software improves stability during use of features, games, and apps.

GameSpot understands that, without the patch, Dragon Age: Inquisition will crash, freeze, and could corrupt save files.

The latest patch comes in the wake of various problems with the PlayStation Network, and its flagship racer Driveclub, as well as various bugs found within the PS4's Masamune update, which was released in late October.

Just five days ago, Sony released system update 2.01 in a bid to fix a critical bug which crashed the PS4 when it entered Rest Mode.

Publisher 2K was also forced to delay its Evolve Alpha due to problems with the PS4's 2.0 update.
