Upgrading Eligible Ubisoft Games from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5

QUESTION:

I plan to purchase a PlayStation 5; how can I upgrade my eligible games on PlayStation 4 to the next generation version?

ANSWER:


We have compiled some key information about how you can upgrade a digital or physical version of Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, Rider's Republic, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege from PlayStation 4 to be playable on the PlayStation 5.


Requirements to Upgrade

When upgrading eligible games from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 copies of the game (digital or physical) will provide access to the corresponding PlayStation 5 version at no additional cost to you.

In order to complete the upgrade process, you must have a PlayStation 5, a physical or digital copy of the eligible game for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Network registration, adequate storage, and a broadband internet connection. The use of broadband internet may incur bandwidth usage fees.

Please note: If upgrading your game using a physical game disc, the disc must still be kept inserted in the PlayStation 5-disc tray to play. Upgrading a physical version of the game from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will not be possible as it is a diskless model of the next generation console.

How can I upgrade my digital version of an eligible game from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5?
Purchase a digital copy of the eligible game for PlayStation 4 through the PlayStation Store and then you’ll be able to download the upgraded title digitally on your PlayStation 5 when it becomes available at no additional cost to you. Please note that an internet connection is required that you must log into your PlayStation 5 with the same account with which you purchased the game on PlayStation 4 to complete this process.

How can I upgrade my physical version of an eligible game from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5?
Get a physical copy of the eligible game for PlayStation 4 and once the game becomes available for PlayStation 5, you will be able to use your original disc to download the upgraded title digitally for use on your PlayStation 5.

Please note that an internet connection is required to complete this process, and that the disc is required to be in the tray to launch the game (for both current generation and next generation consoles).

If you purchase a PlayStation 5 console that does not have a disc tray, upgrading from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 for physical copies of the game will not be possible.

Will my additional digital content transfer from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5?
Yes. All additional digital content that you’ve unlocked on your PlayStation Network account for your eligible Ubisoft games on PlayStation 4 will transfer to the PlayStation 5. The additional digital content included in this offering is:
  • Pre-Order Offers
  • Bonus Content (Example: Season Pass, Ultimate Edition Content)
  • Digital Content Purchased on the PlayStation Store
  • Digital Content Purchased on the In-Game Store
  • Ubisoft Club Rewards
  • Additional ULC Unlocked with Redemption Codes
Can I upgrade an eligible PlayStation 4 game to the Xbox Series X|S?
No. You can only upgrade your PlayStation 4 titles to the PlayStation 5. PlayStation 4 titles cannot be upgraded to be played on the Xbox Series X|S.

Once an eligible PlayStation 4 game has been upgraded to PlayStation 5, can I play it on PlayStation 4 still?
Yes. If your game is eligible to be upgraded to a next generation console and you go through with the upgrade from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, you will still be able to play the game on your PlayStation 4 using your original copy of the game. Note that for physical versions of the game, you’ll need to have the disc inserted in the tray to proceed.

If I lend or resell a physical game I've upgraded, can I still play the upgraded version I installed on my PlayStation 5?
If you lend or resell your physical copy of the Ubisoft title that you’ve upgraded to PlayStation 5, you will not be able to play the game on your PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 4 system. For physical games to be played, the disc must be inserted into the tray of your console (for current generation or next generation consoles).

Can I purchase an eligible PlayStation 5 game and get access to the PlayStation 4 version?
If you purchase an eligible PS5 game digitally, you will also gain access to the PS4 digital version of the game. However, if you purchase an eligible PS5 game physically, you will not gain access to the PS4 digital version of the game.
