PS5 : PS5: How to update a PS4 game to its PS5 version

Sony Playstation 5 :

With PlayStation 5 already in the homes of many Spanish players after the launch of the console on November 19, some users will release the machine with intergenerational gamesthat is, titles that are available to PS5 and PS4. It may even be the case that the game started on the previous Sony machine and you want to continue on the new one.

A range of games offer free update from the PS4 to the PS5 version, as is the case with Sony exclusives (Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure), such as Ubisoft titles (such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion ) as well as others such as No Man’s Sky and Borderlands 3, among others.

However, the update is not automaticInstead, a series of steps must be followed that we explain below and that vary depending on whether the game is in physical or digital format.

Select the upgrade offer in the games area and review it. 5. Select Download to download the content. In cases where the upgrade is paid (as with the standard edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War) the upgrade can be purchased from there.6.

In digital format

It works with either of the two PS5 models. The process for playing a PS4 digital game in its enhanced version for PS5 is somewhat less intuitive, as it requires purchasing the PlayStation 5 edition for free from the PlayStation Store:

1. Log in with your account on the PS5.2 console. Search for the PS5 game in the PS Store, or in Search (top right of the main menu), and select it in the games area. 3. Select the upgrade offer in the games area and review it. 4. Select Download (or the discounted purchase option) to download or purchase the content. 5. When the download is complete, you will be able to play the PS5 game.
