PS4 Emulator fpPS4 shows significant progress on Bloodborne, now plays more than 90 games
It’s been a while since we last talked about fpPS4, one of the most promising PS4 emulators out there. But just because I don’t talk about it doesn’t mean it isn’t getting regular update! Developer Red-Prig keeps releasing updates to his PS4 emulator fpPS4 on a regular basis. Today it was reported that a (yet to be released) recent build of fpPS4 now can play Bloodborne’s sounds (video below). To be clear, the game itself doesn’t play yet. FpPS4 now officially reports 92 PS4 games as playable, up from 81 last time I tested it.
PS4 Emulator – What is fpPS4
fpPS4 is a PS4 emulator for Windows x64, more specifically a “PS4 compatibility layer (emulator) on Free Pascal”. According to the developer, this project is made for fun and just in its beginning stage.
FpPS4 already runs some commercial games. The compatibility list now shows 92 games as “playable” (64 commercial games, 28 homebrew games) and 130 more that go “ingame” (which at this point means they most likely have game-breaking issues). Playable games include Sonic Mania, Super Meat Boy, Undertale, 10 Second Ninja X, Uncanny Valley, Asdivine hearts, and Shutshimi. You’ll need a decent GPU/CPU to get playable framerates, though.
In parallel, fpPS4 can also be enhanced with a GUI such as Temmie’s fpPS4 launcher, which has been seeing a new release (1.2.3) very recently. This release contains so many updates the developer has decided to not include a changelog, but instead points to the list of commits.

And of course, for fpPS4 loading Bloobdorne’s sounds (and as Discord member fafyizer says: “don’t watch, just listen”):
