PS5 FAQ
This link has been provided for your convenience as your question about PS5 support is answered here. Thank you for flying with Cronus Air, have a great day :)
Here's a list of common questions we've been getting from the Cronus Community.
Updated January 25th 2022

1) How does PS5 Game support work?

The PS5 DualSense controller is locked down so we currently use a workaround to boot PS5 games. This is done by using a PS4 Speciality Controller (which we also condensed into the PS5 Dongle). The only down sides are no rumble support for several titles, and that the workaround can be patched at any time on a game by game basis. Most of the games released before August 2021 still work with this method but most games released after don't.

2) What PS5 Games work with Cronus Zen?

Any PS5 game that supports PS4 Speciality Controllers will work with Cronus Zen. We keep this Google Docs chart updated with all the known PS5 releases. Green means it's supported, Red means it's not. If a PS5 game is not supported you can also check if the PS4 version works on the PlayStation 5.

If it does not support PS4 Speciality Controllers, the game will show the error "PS5 games can't be played using the current controller".

3) I have Rainbow 6 and it was working great with my PS5 Dongle, now after an update it's giving me an error and won't boot?

When we said this workaround can be patched at any time, this is what we meant. Some developers have started to remove PS4 Speciality Controller support from their games, which sucks for owners of controllers like the very expensive Astro C40 and Scuf Vantage. The good news is you can still boot the PS4 version of this game and it will work fine - with rumble. At the time of writing only 5 games are known to have been patched.

4) PS5 Fortnite was patched, but the PS4 version on disc is not booting?

There is at least one exception that we know of where the physical PS4 disc and PS4 digital download will not boot on a PlayStation 5, and that is Fortnite.
Update: Take a look at #7
Error when booting a Fortnite PS4 disc on the PlayStation 5

5) Will PS4 Games still work with Zen?

So far in tests, all PS4 versions of games are booting on the PlayStation 5 except for one, Fortnite.

Switching between PS5 and PS4 versions on your PlayStation 5 console

If you own the PS4 and PS5 versions of the same game, here's how to switch between them:
  1. 1.
    From the Games Home Screen, go to the Game Library.
  2. 2.
    Select the game and press X
  3. 3.
    Select the [...] button on the screen to view options.
  4. 4.
    Select the version of the game you want to download or play.
Note: If you are unsure of what version of the game you are viewing on this screen:
  • PS4 versions display PS4 beside the game title at the top of the screen.
  • PS5 versions only display the game title.

6) Is Rust not supported? Because I don't see it on the PS5 compatible games list.

Rust is a PS4 Game. Yes it works on the PS5, there just isn't a PS5 version of it yet

7) Will there be a fix?
