Guilty Gear Strive PS4 PS5 Free Upgrade

Developer Arc System Works has published a new FAQ article on Guilty Gear Strive, addressing a whole load of queries about the upcoming fighter. The big news here is that if you buy Strive on PS4, you'll be able to upgrade to the PS5 version for free. All of your purchased DLC will work as well, as long as you're using the same PlayStation account on both consoles.

What's more, the FAQ confirms that cross-play between PS4 and PS5 is planned, meaning that players on either system will be able to match up with one another. Neat.

As for differences in performance between the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, the PS5 version will obviously benefit from running on better hardware. The FAQ stresses that Strive will feature the same content on both platforms, but the next-gen edition will boast a higher resolution and shorter load times.

Guilty Gear Strive is due to launch in April 2021, but will you be bursting against your rivals next year? Give us a sick guitar riff in the comments section below.
