How to upgrade Dying Light 2 PS5 from PS4

If you have Dying Light 2 on PS4, you can upgrade to the PS5 version for free. This is excellent news, as upgrades between generations have not been as easy as they could be. Some publishers don’t offer them at all, some are free, and others require you to purchase a certain version of the game or pay an upgrade fee. With PS5 stock remaining low, many players faced the dilemma of choosing between buying a game for their PS4 or sticking with it to save money. It’s great to know that’s not the case with Dying Light 2.

How to upgrade Dying Light 2 PS4 to PS5

Dying Light 2 Upgrade

We’re assuming that upgrading to the PS5 version of Dying Light 2 will be just like any other cross-generational title. To do this:

  • Make sure the disc is in the drive if you have a physical copy.
  • Sign in to a PS5 console.
  • Find the PS5 version of the game on the PlayStation Store and go to the game hub.
  • Select the upgrade offer on the game hub.
  • After confirming the upgrade offer, select ‘Download’.
  • After the download is complete, launch the game from the XMB or your game library.

If you have already downloaded the PS5 version and the PS4 version continues to launch, you need to switch to the correct installation. To do this:

  • Go to the tile on the home screen or go to the library.
  • Select the game and press the [...] to open the options menu.
  • Here you can choose which version you want to play.

Unfortunately, this announcement confirmed some bad news. Cross-platform and cross-generation co-op won’t be available for Dying Light 2 at launch. However, Techland plans to support the game for five years, so we’ll probably see it added at some point.

In other news, despite rumors, Sony says it never planned to stop PS4 production, and that Call of Duty could drop its annual releases.
