The PlayStation 4 versions of Watch Dogs Legion and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla should both offer free upgrades on the PlayStation 5, but many owners have stated that the option to take advantage of them does not appear in the store.
Ubisoft today told Eurogamer that it is aware of and is investigating this issue. Dozens of people have reported this issue on Twitter and Ubisoft’s own support forums.
The word in question spread only last week after the PS5 was released here in Europe, even though the console was launched elsewhere in the world seven days ago.
One of the potential workarounds proposed in various places is to change the console region to Turkey. As a result, some users are now presented with upgrade options.
So what’s happening here? It’s worth remembering that the PlayStation Store has different versions of the game in different regions and different generations of consoles. A common online suggestion is that the list of European stores is incorrect.
You can play PS4 versions of these games on PS5, but you’ll need the next-generation version to take advantage of improved audio and visuals, ray tracing, adaptive trigger support, and faster load times. ..
Today, Ubisoft sent the following steps to try the upgrade (TL; DR, you need to select “View Product” to check in the game hub)-“Products” from affected users I’ve heard that there is no “display”, but they can access it.
Ubisoft’s suggestions are:
- Insert the target PS4 game disc.
- Go to the game hub for PS4 games.User must select “View Product”
- Select an upgrade offer in the Game Hub to see the upgrade offer.
- To download / purchase content[ダウンロード]Select (or buy at a discounted price).
- After the download is complete, you can insert the PS4 game disc and play PS5 digital games. You must insert the disc every time you play the game.
