If you own a physical copy of Fallout 4 on a disc, you need to first insert the PS4 disc into your PS5 console.

Click the View Product option and then you should be taken to a new screen where you're offered the Free PS5 Upgrade. This will download Fallout 4 for PS5, but you'll need to keep the PS4 disc inside your PS5 console whenever you want to play the PS5 version because it acts as an activation key.
