Many had fairly high hopes for Redemption Reapers — a strategy RPG with a lot of big names attached to it, including a Fire Emblem veteran. However, the PS4 title, which released back in February, failed to meet those lofty expectations. It currently sits at a lukewarm 63 critic average over on OpenCritic, with our own sister site Nintendo Life giving Redemption Reapers a disappointing 5/10 on Switch.
But all hope is not lost. Announced alongside two key updates, the RPG is getting a PS5 version at some point in July — and yes, it'll be a free upgrade if you already own the game on PS4.
As for the aforementioned updates, versions 1.30 and 1.40 will introduce balance adjustments, user interface improvements, New Game +, and even an easy difficulty mode. It all sounds great, given that most reviews point out frustrating difficulty spikes and a lack of polish.
Oh, and Redemption Reapers' physical edition has been delayed from late April to early July, just in case you were waiting on that.
