Clarification on upgrading PS4 version to PS5
Since it can be a little confusing to find out how exactly the free upgrade will work and what you need to do, I decided to clarify.
- You are eligible for a free upgrade if you bought a digital or physical copy of the PS4 version of VII Remake.
- Every time you want to play or download Intergrade on your PS5, and when you did the Upgrade via a PS4 Disc, you need to insert the PS4 disc into the PS5 in order to play the digital version of Intergrade.
- If you do the free upgrade, Yuffie DLC must be bought separately from the PS Store.
- The DLC is included when you buy Intergrade for PS5.
- VII Intergrade as well as the latest updates must be installed in order to play the Yuffie DLC.
- Those who downloaded the free PS Plus version are not eligible for the free upgrade.
- You can carry over your PS4 save data to the PS5 version. They will release an update that adds the option to do so in the main title screen.
To sum it up, here is a step-by-step guide:
- Don't download the PS Plus version of VII Remake if you already own it because PS Plus version isn't eligible for free Upgrade. As of now, it is unclear if adding the PS Plus version to your library locks you out of the free upgrade. I say don't do it when you already bought it.
- Own a PS5 with a disc-drive when you own a PS4 Disc version of VII Remake.
- Insert the disc of the PS4 version into your PS5 or download the digital PS4 version to your PS5 to upgrade it.
- Keep the disc inside if you want to play it and when you did the upgrade from the PS4 Disc.
- Buy Yuffie DLC from the PS Store.
- Keep your game up to date in order to play this DLC.
- If you bought the digital PS4 version, you do not need a PS5 with a disc drive.
