How to claim your FF7R PS5 upgrade

1 : Anonymous2021/06/10 02:49 ID: nwd8u0

This game’s upgrade can be very confusing for many so here’s how to do it. First of all, you need to own FF7R digitally or physically (the one from PS Plus is not eligible). If you are claiming your upgrade with the physical copy, make sure the disc is inserted (the disc will have to be inserted when playing the upgraded version btw). Now go to the PS Store, search ‘Intergrade’ and open the product page. Click on the three dots icon and select the option “…upgrade for PS4 version owners”. You should now be able to claim your free PS5 upgrade. If the option is not visible from the three dots, it means Intergrade hasn’t released in your region yet (as I’m writing this post, it’s currently not available in the US). If you own the PS Plus version and desperately want the PS5 upgrade, I highly recommend purchasing a used physical copy to claim it. One thing to add, you will need to open your PS4 version to download your saved data (if you want to carry it over). Then open the PS5 version and upload that saved data. And since many people asked, the Yuffie DLC is not included in the free upgrade, it must be purchased (£20 in UK)

FOR EVERYONE who played the PS4 version, please make sure you download the saved data from its main menu and then open the PS5 version to upload it and carry it over. To transfer saved data, you’ll need to make sure you’re on the game’s latest update

Dont forget to download the free PS5 version DLC item pack for the original ps4 release pre order and digital deluxe version Summons + some items previously only obtainable from the US promotional offers. Carbuncle summon is free heals and revives.

Edit: For those asking how? Go to the ff7 PS5 game page in the store, look for the add-on section. It should be there and be free.

Aw fuck the carbuncle was free with the upgrade? I bought it right before because I wanted to replay with it and the cactus materia but you’re saying I paid $20 for nothing?

u got carfuncled lol

ID: h19k7vl

Oof that's gonna be an L unfortunately. It's pretty rare to get refunds if you started the download.

ID: h19acdh

Yup did that immediately was great to finally get it, I upgraded from ps4 to ps5 and got the yuffie episode for €20 but the extra weapon for her that was a pre order bonus is €10 that's a bit of a rip

ID: h18rgsb

I’m stuck on the PS4 version with those last 2 combat simulator’s. Was hoping Carbuncle would be free for the PS4 version too lol

ID: h19ahor

It's been a while since I did it but follow this guide

Search divine weapon. Having barrier on when Bahamut casts megaflare halves the damage. And make sure all your materia is fully levelled up.

It should be available in about 30 minutes.

Its oddly satisfying watching all the trophies be reachieved

ID: h195aqn

Oh this happens? That’s very exciting!

ID: h19cmop

Aw, I hate auto-pop PS5 trophies! I want to get those again myself! Oh well, still going to be fun playing it again!

ID: h19kfgh

Well you could just choose to not transfer your save data

Showing up for anyone in the US?

Up now

Just a heads up, that if you want to transfer your save data to the PS5 game, you have to upload it from the PS4 games menu. Once uploaded you can open the PS5 game and download it from there. The PS5 has its own trophy list and the trophies transfer over once you move your save over.

It didn’t need to be this hard. Every free upgrade so far has been in a big hard to miss box on the right side of the game hub for the PS4 version. I felt like I only found it because I just kept clicking on stuff because I knew it had to be there somewhere.

ID: h19bp8j

Exactly. There’s probably a bunch of people who aren’t as in tune with gaming news still playing the PS4 version on their PS5 months from now, unaware of the free upgrade lol

ID: h19nuug

Especially since they keep downloading ps4 versions if you install via the app for some stupid reason. They might have fixed it by now but I have no idea because why would I use the app anymore after so much wasted space over and over again.

why is the Yufi version listed as "Chinese Korean version) in Canada?

ID: h18qnys

Was wondering this too. I don’t want to buy it only for it to not work since I’m in the US

It works

Damn Sony and PS5 are making these cross gen upgrades so easy and simple... lmao.

ID: h19tia1

Xbox does some things right and smart delivery is one of them

ID: h19x12q

Yep, that and Quick Resume I miss so much on the PS5.

ID: h19uw2k

For real, I had both PS4/5 versions downloading before I figured it out lol

ID: h19x1ja

Hehe you and me both lmao.

ID: h19niom

Super intuitive feature for a next gen console. They need to get their shit together when it comes to this stuff.

Showing as 8.99 in the UK? Must be an error?

ID: h198an4

I selected it but it didn’t charge me

Really appreciate the help with this one, it's unnecessarily confusing.

12 : Anonymous2021/06/10 04:04 ID: h18q1uf

As of 12:04am Eastern time, I’m still not able to download it in the US…am I looking in the wrong spot? Or does it not launch at exactly midnight?

Edit: Never mind - kept checking and the option to download the upgrade showed up around 12:07am for me. Kind of a janky system, and wish we could have preloaded, but at least it looks like you only need to download 13 of the 80 total gigs to start playing.

13 : Anonymous2021/06/10 06:10 ID: h190sf9

I downloaded the ps+ version bc i was too lazy to keep swapping disc out when I got my ps5. Since I had both a ps4 & ps5 I decided to give my gf my ps4 so she can use it to watch stuff. I checked my FF7 case right now to pop in the disc and noticed its missing. I think I left it in my ps4. PAIN.

ID: h18t3sk

ID: h18qnkc

It got fixed a bit ago

They make it way to confusing, you shouldn't need a post to learn how to update a game but you do

16 : Anonymous2021/06/10 04:07 ID: h18qbwf

If you're in the States, download is now live.

Go straight to the PSN store and look up FF7R Integrade, and scroll down, you should see an option for "FF7R Upgrade for PS4 version owners", just hit Add to Library and start your download from your PS5 if you're eligible.

17 : Anonymous2021/06/10 09:04 ID: h19cqxc

So does anyone knows if the art book for intergrade and ff7r are the same?

18 : Anonymous2021/06/10 11:27 ID: h19n04i

If you own a physical ps4 copy and then claim your free upgrade, do you always need to insert the disc to play the upgraded version?

I didn't see anyone discussing this, and its probably a non-issue.

I claimed the free ps5 upgrade, but is it ok for the title to still just say "ff7 remake" instead of "remake integrade"

It was an 80gig download so I'm assuming its integrade. Just odd that the title screen doesn't reflect it.

why does square insist on doing things like this the most confusing way possible

20 : Anonymous2021/06/10 04:14 ID: h18r0zf

Do I still need the ps4 version installed on my ps5?

Edit: Make sure to delete the ps4 version as soon as you can. I ended up playing the first hour on the PS4 version on accident. It wasnt clear on how to play PS5 version over the PS4 version. The only way I managed to do that was by deleting the PS4 version.

21 : Anonymous2021/06/10 12:28 ID: h19swmk

They have a digital version of the $69.99 ps5 version. I’m guessing you can just get that if you owned the ps+ version and don’t want to buy physical)
