PS4 to PS5: How Do Free Upgrades Work?

PS4 to PS5's free upgrades will work differently depending on how the publisher decides to support the initiative and which versions of the games you own. For example, if you purchase a digital copy of Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the PS4, then you'll be able to upgrade to a digital copy of Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the PS5 free of charge. If you own a physical copy of Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the PS4, then you'll need to hold on to your copy of the disc, as you'll need to use this to play Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the PS5.

This means that if you purchase a physical copy of any of the games listed above, you won't be able to upgrade to the PS5 version if you purchase the PS5 Digital Edition. You can find out more about the two models courtesy of the following guide: PS5 Digital Edition vs PS5: What's the Difference?
