    PS4 free upgrade vs PS5 version

    Hello,
    I am trying to decide if i want to get the PS4 Valhalla version and the free upgrade or if i want to get the PS5 version. What the differences in game play, i.e., load times, graphics, etc?

    Also, I see Best Buy has a edition with a Ragnar statue but only for the PS4. Will there be a PS5 version with the statue or will the statue be available separately?

    Hi mac3dge!

    The free upgrade is to the PS5 version of the game - if you got the PS4 version, you'll get the PS5 version when the PS5 launches.

    I don't have any further information regarding new editions, but we'll be sure to let you guys know if we plan to release these.

    Hi Ubi-Spud.What did you mean when you said:"If you got the ps4 version,you'll get the ps5 version at the release of the ps5"?
    Will we get the digital ps5 version of the game or we must simply put the disc into our ps5 and download a patch?

    Hi There

    I’m not sure whether anyone remembers when AC:Black Flag was released. This was the last cross-gen AC game. If you purchased the PS3 version you could download the PS4 version for £10 but had to have the PS3 disc in the PS4 drive. This is the dame for AC:Valhalla - If you purchase the PS4 version of Valhalla, you will receive the PS5 version for free, however you will need to have the PS4 disc in the PS5 for it to launch.

    IIRC it was the whole game, it didn’t use any date from the Disc and its roughly 22gb on the PSN at the moment.

    Assume this will be the same, just a lot larger. Will probably be purchasing a large external drive for my PS5

    Thanks for the answer.
    I've made this question a lot of times because I haven't a wireless connection at home,so I don't know how to download a game which is big 50 or 90Gb.

    Hey, cap.cla!

    You would need a strong stable connection in order to download the game. It is best to try and connect your console via Ethernet in order to download games.

    I would like to know one thing about upgrade PS4 version to PS5 one.

    As me and my brother share our accounts on ours PS4's and I would like to know one thing.

    If he buys AC: Valhalla on his account and I will download it on my account, will I get a free upgrade to PS5 version too or I will need to buy my own copy to get it??

    As far as I'm aware Sony haven't announced any official information on game sharing on PS5 at this point so I'm unable to give you an answer at this stage. I'd recommend perhaps reaching out to Sony directly to see if they can answer this question or offer insight into when you might be able to find out more.
