If you are still on PlayStation 4 but plan to switch to PS5 as soon as it’s easier to get and its early issues are fixed, you may be looking forward to purchasing games that will get free upgrade as you launch them on PS5. Yes, there are dozens of such titles already, and here is the Top 5. These games are the best purchase now if you plan to take them to your PS5 as you get it.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

The “viking” take on the story is one of the most impressive visually, and on PS5 it will show even brighter. Though new Assassin’s Creed installments appear each year, they often disappoint – but Valhalla doesn’t.

Borderlands 3

The incredible space shooter with infinitely customizable weapons and looting has never looked as great as on PS5. We don’t know when to expect the next installment, so stick to Borderlands 3! 

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time

Again, you know how much time it took to bring the fast0running bandicoot in jeans back to the list of actual games. Hardly the new installment will appear any time soon, so Crash Bandicoot: It’s About Time is as well the best game with this PlayStation mascot on PS5. 

Cyberpunk 2077

By the time this action-packed RPG hits PS5 (in late 2021), it will have most of its notorious bugs fixed, under constant pressure from the community. Given the scandal that accompanied the initial release of Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4, it’s a logical decision to provide the free upgrade.

Destiny 2

This sci-fi shooter was released back in 2017; no wonder we expect better performance and visuals from its PS5 adaptation. And yes, it will contain the DLC’s the game received in these years, as well as the two upcoming ones. 

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut

Though basically it’s an interactive graphic novel, it can still be spectacular though text-oriented. The Final Cut offers fantastic atmospheric visuals of that neo-noir detective story that has already fascinated millions. On PS5, it will be even greater. And don’t be afraid that it’ll lose its appeal% it has enough story twists and bifurcation points to tell you a new story each time you make other choices. 

Resident Evil Village

The latest installment in the iconic series is visually the most unusual, given that it takes place in a village somewhere in Romania, adding some mystic fleur to it. It’s an open-world adventure, so even if you’re through the main mission before you get your PS5 copy, it will still be fun to replay. 

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

The “alternative” Spider-Man proves it stands better than the original, let alone the disappointing Marvel’s Avengers. In the PS5 version, Spider-Man: Miles Morales will remain the long-awaited minority superhero with major abilities, and the game may receive more content with the re-release. 

Subnautica: Below Zero

One of the most beautiful underwater exploration games will surely benefit from visual improvements. Confess: there were times you launched it not for the mere gameplay, but to see how beautiful it is! Now it’s even more spectacular, chilling and freezing, and yet amazing. 

Watch Dogs: Legion 

The long-awaited hacker game sequel has experienced a lot of issues, so the publisher decided to recompense the wait for PS5 owners with free upgrade. So come on, buy the PS4 version now and upgrade for free when it’s available.
