How To Claim Free PS4 To PS5 Upgrade For The Witcher 3
The Witcher 3 has received a free upgrade for the PS5 and Xbox Series X bringing new features. How do you claim it on the PS5?
The process is a lot more simplified on the Xbox Series X where if you don’t have the game installed, the correct version will auto-download depending on your console. So if you have a digital copy of The Witcher 3 or the Complete Edition of the game, you will just need to download it on your console to claim the free upgrade. If you have the game installed already, it might be prompted for an update which will upgrade it to the Xbox Series version.
For reference, the download size of the PS5 version is 40 to 50 GB so it should be the same on the Xbox Series X.
How To Get Free PS4 To PS5 Upgrade For The Witcher 3
If you are playing the game on the PS4, you will still get an update to version 4.00 but this is for the native PS4 version. The native PS5 version is quite different from The Witcher 3 as you can see in the patch notes. Don’t just assume that you will be playing the PS5 version after updating to the PS4 version.
To download the PS5 release of The Witcher 3, you will need to head to the game directory and find The Witcher 3 game page there. If you can’t find it, search for the game on the PlayStation Store to get to it.
Once you are on the PlayStation Store page for the game, you will need to pick the version from a drop-down menu. If you don’t have the complete edition, pick it up since this is the one with the PS5 upgrade. You will be able to trigger a download for the PS5 version.
That’s how you can claim the free upgrade for The Witcher 3 from PS4 to PS5. On PC, this is a simple update that is just around 45 GB.
