Ubisoft has offered further details on now its PS4 to PS5 upgrade system will work for upcoming titles including Far Cry 6 and Watch Dogs Legion, after confirming yesterday that both games will support the feature alongside Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Far Cry 6 & Watch Dogs Legion PS4 To PS5 Upgrade Details Clarified
Writing on its official website, Ubisoft revealed that, much like titles from fellow publisher Electronic Arts, you won’t be able to upgrade from a physical version of a game to the PS5 Digital Only Edition.
For digital copies purchased on the Microsoft Store or PlayStation Store, you will be able to download the upgraded version when it becomes available. For physical copies, you will be able to download the upgraded version when it becomes available. The disc must be inserted to launch both the current-gen and next-gen versions of the game.
Next-gen upgrades are not available for physical versions of the game if you have upgraded to a discless console. It is also not possible to upgrade from a digital current-gen edition to a physical next-gen edition.
Once you have completed the upgrade, you will still be able to play your game on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
Watch Dogs Legion is due for release on October 29 and Far Cry 6 will arrive on February 18, 2021.
