Can you upgrade Soul Hackers 2 from PS4 to PS5 for free?

Following the official announcement of Soul Hackers 2, console gamers are probably wondering what the upgrade situation looks like. While the vast majority of games make transitioning between console generations relatively seamless, not all titles enjoy an easy upgrade path.

If you start playing Soul Hackers 2 on PS4, can you upgrade to the PS5 version for free down the line?

Is the update free?

On PlayStation, the answer is yes. Atlus confirmed by a Q&A section on its website that owners of the PS4 version can upgrade to the PS5 for free. This also includes transferring save data, which isn’t always obvious when games offer free upgrades on Sony’s platform. Some games, such as Yakuza: Like a Dragon, allow users to upgrade on PlayStation at the cost of losing their save date.

Luckily, that’s not the case with Soul Hackers 2. It works whether you own the physical or digital version, but there’s a slight caveat for physical owners. The upgrade provides the digital version of Soul Hackers 2. Despite this, the disc acts as a license to confirm that you own it. For this reason, you will need to insert the PS4 disc into your PS5 every time you want to play the downloaded PS5 version.

As for Xbox consoles, Atlus has yet to confirm whether Smart Delivery is supported. Since the PlayStation versions have a free upgrade path, it’s safe to assume that the Xbox versions offer something similar, but an official statement has yet to be made.
