Those of you looking to upgrade your copy of FIFA 22 from PS4 to PS5 for free will have to fork out for the game’s Ultimate Edition, which will cost you £89.99. Dual Entitlement is not available in the FIFA 22 Standard Edition, EA has confirmed.
EA’s website features a Dual Entitlement FAQ of FIFA 22, which reads as follows:
Dual Entitlement is only available with the purchase of the FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition. The Standard Edition of FIFA 22 does not include Dual Entitlement. That means if you purchase FIFA 22 Standard Edition on PS4 and upgrade to PS5 later, you would need to purchase the PS5 version of the game to play.
Last year’s FIFA 21 offered a free upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game regardless of what version you purchased, so it’s disappointing to see EA changing its policy for this year’s entry.
FIFA 22 is pencilled in for an October 1, 2021 release on PS5, PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
