Final Fantasy 7 Remake PS Plus Copies Get Free PS5 Upgrade This Week
Add some next-gen shine to that copy of Final Fantasy VII Remake that you got back in March, as the PS5 upgrade will be freely available later this week.
Back in March, PS Plus subscribers had an opportunity to download a free copy of Final Fantasy 7 Remake's PS4 edition, but upgrading to the enhanced PS5 version would cost extra. As of this Wednesday, that fee is being waived as the upgrade will be available for free.
Previously, this free upgrade was only available for those people who had purchased the game, but PlayStation Plus owners of it can now add some razzle-dazzle to their version on Sony's newest console.
The Intergrade expansion, which stars Materia-hunter Yuffie in her own dedicated episode, will still need to be purchased separately, but Sony has discounted the price of that DLC by 25% for a limited time.
