When Sony first set this month's lineup of free PlayStation Plus titles live on the PS Store, it wasn't possible to upgrade The Persistence to The Persistence Enhanced on either PS5 or PS4, as we originally thought it would be. However, it looks like the company has done a bit of work overnight to enable this as The Persistence Enhanced can now be claimed for free once you've redeemed the standard PS4 version of The Persistence through PS Plus.
Take a look at the screenshot above to see how it works. You want to claim The Persistence on PS4 using your PS Plus membership, and then head into the PS Store to find The Persistence Enhanced is now labelled as a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade. Click through and hit download and away you go.
For those who don't know, The Persistence Enhanced is an upgrade on the original game with "improved lighting, UX enhancements, and raytraced rendering. Immersive haptic feedback is also supported with the DualSense controller on PS5." So, if you've got an active PS Plus subscription and haven't started The Persistence just yet, be sure to grab the upgraded PS5 version for the best experience possible. And if you have started it, just carry your progress over.
