Many of us took advantage of the free PlayStation Plus titles at the beginning of the month that included Ghost of Tsushima: Legends as one of the titles available for free to service subscribers. This was the multiplayer co-op expansion to Sucker Punch’s smash hit, Ghost of Tsushima. We’ve now seen the Iki Island expansion, which was released as part of the Director’s Cut.
However, if you’ve recently purchased a PlayStation 5, this is where issues can develop. Assume you obtained the license for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. Then you chose to buy the PlayStation 5 update for your new console. You will have a problem upgrading if you continue on this path.
The problem was brought to light by Resetera. It has been discovered that if you purchased Ghost of Tsushima: Legends through PS Plus, you will be unable to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version. The problem derives from the fact that the PS shop believes it is part of the Director’s Cut. Surprisingly, the full-priced PlayStation 5 release of the Director’s Cut is still available.
We currently only have one answer. Contact customer service to have the PS Plus version refunded.
This will then allow you to purchase the PlayStation 5 version’s upgrade. So, for the time being, if you want the multiplayer expansion, skip the PS Plus version. It’s a messed-up circumstance because the content for the full-price release is almost certainly the same as the upgraded version. There is no logical reason for the upgrade to be barred from purchase if you purchase the full release. It’s not the first time we’ve experienced troubles with upgrading from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5. Sony just released a software update to tackle difficulties with Cyberpunk 2077 and the updated version. So, what are your thoughts?
