Elden Ring supports free PS5 upgrade from PS4, as well as free upgrade from Xbox One to Xbox Series X | S through Smart Delivery.
Elden Ring is a cross-gen game and as such it will be released on both past generation and next gen consoles, but Bandai Namco has however provided for the free passage from one generation to another while remaining within the same family: therefore the upgrade PS5 will be free starting from PS4, as will the one at Xbox Series X | S starting from Xbox One via Smart Delivery.
Although in most cases this excellent habit is registered, the question was not obvious because on some games of wide appeal it happens that publishers tend to find some gabola able to make users spend something who pass from one generation to another. but wanting to continue playing the same title.
Fortunately, Bandai Namco has stuck to the most positive habit and will therefore propose the free upgrade from PS4 to the PS5 version, while as regards Microsoft consoles it will support the Smart Delivery system, which allows you to automatically obtain the specific version of the machine owned with a single purchase, thus allowing you to have the Xbox Series X | S version for free while already owning the Xbox One version.
It is certainly excellent news, which is added to what has come from the Summer Game Fest at E3 2021 in the past few hours, or the new gameplay video with release date for Elden Ring, which closed the event truly in the best of ways.
The new and anticipated From Software action RPG therefore has the launch set for January 21, 2022 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S.
