If the fact that CD Projekt Red already manages to offer free PlayStation 5 upgrades to owners of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, a five year old game, this latest discovery makes the whole situation for 505 games and only a worse remedy. You cannot upgrade your PlayStation 4 copy of Control to the next generation version unless you own the newly released Ultimate Edition. This means that players who wish to do so will have to purchase the game again, even though they may already own all of the content that this latest version contains.
We already knew all of this, but it turns out that Deluxe Edition owners have been tacitly upgraded to the Ultimate Edition later today. But then they were taken down again when the word came out, which means the functionality is no longer available. This was all cracked in the ResetEra game forum, where users reported that they could download the Ultimate Edition for free. However, if you move forward quickly, the same people will be slapped in the face with a price and an “add to cart”
This essentially means that both the developer and the publisher actually had the option of updating certain versions of Control all along, but they claimed they hadn’t done so in a recent blog post. It said: “The upgrade path we offer is only possible if the same version of the game is upgraded. Since we are only developing the Control Ultimate Edition on the next generation platforms, we are unfortunately unable to offer an upgrade.” Path to all existing control players. ” Except that exactly An upgrade path was offered on PlayStation Store throughout the day. It is coincidental.
Where is that for us? In a difficult situation we think. There is now clear evidence that the Deluxe Edition of Control can be upgraded to the Ultimate Edition, which will grant a free PS5 upgrade. However, 505 Games and Remedy continue to deny the ability to exist at the time of writing. If one of the parties issues an update on the situation, we will definitely inform you.
