Sackboy: A Big Adventure might not offer a big visual jump from PS4 to PS5 but it does include some features that are exclusive to the PS5 version.
According to the official PlayStation pre-order page for SackBoy: A Big Adventure, the game has a price tag of $59.99 for both PS4 and PS5. The difference between both versions is not limited to visuals only as there are some specific features that are limited to the PS5, thanks in part to its unique hardware.
SackBoy: A Big Adventure will offer the following features exclusive to the PS5 version.
• Tempest 3D AudioTech – Hear Craftworld come life all around you
• Haptic Feedback – Running across wool like flooring or platforms will use haptics to simulate the change in material under Sackboy
• Fast Loading – Experience fast loading between and into levels, including in multiplayer* sessions with the PS5™ console’s ultra-high speed SSD
The game will offer both online and offline co-op, however, it will require a PlayStation Plus subscription if you are opting to play online. It was not explicitly stated but cross-platform multiplayer should be possible as well.
As mentioned by Twitter user Halston, the game will offer a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade as per a pre-order listing on the PlayStation Store. There are three different versions of the game.
There are three editions of the game.
