During the initial PS5 tech showcase, system architect Mark Cerny revealed the console would include a feature that allowed players to instantly access certain parts of a game. WRC 9 director Alan Jarnious may have just let the cat out of the bag on how this feature works and what it’s called. According to Alan, the feature dubbed “PlayStation 5 Activities” allows players to instantly load into any part of a game and even directly into race.

In an interview with GameReactor, Alan shared how the PlayStation Activities feature works.
Mark Cerny confirmed this during his initial announcement. He touched on multiplayer games specifically saying;
Of course, the PlayStation 5 Activities feature will go hand-in-hand with the console’s SSD and UI. Together, players can explore what a game has to offer directly from the home screen and launch instantly into a race or mode without having to directly boot up the game itself. While we have known about this PS5 feature for a while now, it is nice to see a developer describe how their game will make use of it.
Sony has yet to showcase this in action. Hopefully, we will see it soon at the rumoured 6 August PS5 event next week.
