When it is possible to upgrade a video game to Sony’s next generation for free, this will be indicated by a blue label.
Not all games will have improvements in the new generation, not all can be updated for free. In this gibberish in which the companies were introduced, it is logical to have a clue that guides the consumer. Microsoft has used its own label when developers have used their own technology to make this possible (Smart Delivery), while Sony will do the same with a label that has just been released. “PS5 Upgrade Available”
Immortals Fenix Rising, the new production from Ubisoft Quebec, the makers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, is the first to have the stamp on the cover. This way, players know instantly that their PlayStation 4 game can be updated for free with any improvements to PlayStation 5. In the case of Sony, the company hasn’t created a specific tool to facilitate this transition, but that hasn’t stopped many developers from choosing to do it. Ubisoft is one of them as upcoming titles (including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Watch Dogs Legion or Far Cry 6) will introduce this capability.
PlayStation 5, yet without a specific official date
During this week Microsoft put all the cards on the table. The Redmond giant had planned to announce the price and release date of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S later, but the leaks forced plans to move on. Meanwhile, Sony remains silent, although rumors haven’t stopped spreading. Everything seems to be pointing to the fact that we still have to wait to learn the details of how to start your system.
PlayStation 5 will go on sale at the end of 2020 with games like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Ratchet & Clank: Drift Apart.
