Day One PS5 Guide

Are you having a hard time waiting any longer for the PS5 launch? Us too, but we’re almost there and we’ll have a whole generation of new games to look forward to. Fortunately, Sony has a slew of games from the PS4 library that will be playable day one on the PS5. We’ve made it even easier for you and set up this little Day One PS5 Guide. If you are the primary owner of the game (purchased with your personal PSN account or you have a physical copy), you will be able to enjoy a free upgrade on certain games for the new console.

Check out the list of games that will be eligible for a PS4 to PS5 upgrade on day one:

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure
  • Maneater
  • DiRT 5
  • Borderlands 3
  • For Honor (60 FPS update will apply early December)
  • The Pathless
  • Bugsnax
  • No Man’s Sky
  • Watch Dogs: Legion
  • WRC 9 FIA World Rally Championship

Keep in mind this list only contains upgrades available at launch. This also includes several PS5 launch titles, but in case you get the PS4 version by mistake, you’ll still have the PS5 option too. For a full list of known free next-gen upgrades, you can click here.

We also have you covered for the process of making this conversion. It will only take a few steps, which have been highlighted below from a recent release from Sony.

PS4 Disc Upgrade:

To upgrade an eligible PS4 game on disc to the digital PS5 version, you will need a PS5 console with a disc drive. PS4 game discs can’t be used with the PlayStation®5 Digital Edition.

  1. Sign in to your existing account on your PS5 console (or create an account).
  2. Insert the eligible PS4 game disc.
  3. Go to the game hub for the PS4 game.
  4. Select the upgrade offer on the game hub and review the upgrade offer.
  5. Select Download (or purchase with the discount price) to download/purchase content.
  6. After the download is complete, you can play the PS5 digital game by inserting the PS4 game disc. You will need to keep the disc inserted each time to play the game.

PS4 Digital Upgrade:

To upgrade an eligible digital PS4 game you already own to the digital PS5 version, simply follow the steps below.

  1. Sign in to your existing account on your PS5 console.
  2. Find the PS5 game in PlayStation Store, or by Search, and go to the game hub for the PS5 game.
  3. Select the upgrade offer on the game hub and review the upgrade offer.
  4. Select Download (or purchase with the discount price) to download/purchase content.
  5. After the download is complete, you can play the PS5 game.

Add this in with the previously highlighted PlayStation Plus Collection, and PS5 users will have plenty to play as soon as the console is in their hands. For a reminder of the list of games included in the PS Plus Collection, see the list of games as of October 28, 2020 below.
