How To Upgrade Final Fantasy VII Remake To PS5 Version For Free

An upgrade path will soon be available for PS Plus owners!

December 21, 2021

In a recent announcement, Square Enix has revealed that all players who claimed the Final Fantasy VII Remake from PS Plus back in March will soon have the ability to upgrade to the native PS5 version this week.

Final Fantasy VII Remake was originally released for PS4 in August of 2020, followed by a next-gen version titled Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, released for the PS5 in June 2021.

However, in between the release of the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, it was made available for subscribers of PS Plus. But when the next-gen version was released a few months later, those who picked up Final Fantasy VII Remake via PlayStation’s subscription service were unable to upgrade to the Intergrade version if they wished to do so.

Thankfully, Square Enix has decided to rectify that decision. Starting from Wednesday, December 22nd, anybody who owns the PS Plus version of Final Fantasy VII Remake will be able to upgrade to the PS5 version, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade if they wish, here’s how.
