If you own a PlayStation 4 copy of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Watch Dogs Legion that you’re hoping to upgrade on the PlayStation 5, you may be bang out of luck because neither title is working as intended right now. This issue only appears to apply to Blu-ray owners in select European countries, but it’s no less frustrating.
So, as you may already know, both titles offer free PS4 to PS5 upgrades. While we can verify that PS Store purchases work as intended, Blu-ray owners are having trouble. What’s supposed to happen is that you insert the PS4 disc and then download the next-gen version. Instead, fans are being quoted a £59.99 fee.
Obviously, this is an error, and Ubisoft has said it’s investigating. There is a workaround that involves creating a Turkish PlayStation Network account, but we wouldn’t recommend going to those kinds of lengths for an issue that will likely be solved within the next few days. It’s a disappointing mix-up, though, of that there’s no doubt – hopefully it’s all resolved soon.
