The PS5 Version Of Kena: Bridge Of Spirits Will Be A Free Upgrade For A Limited Time

Update: PS5 improvements detailed

Update: Ember Lab has tweeted again in response to a fan question and detailed the improvements we can expect in the PlayStation 5 version in the game. These will include faster loading, haptic feedback, 3D audio and ‘graphical improvement’s. 

Original story is below:

We’re halfway through August and the next-gen hype train is nearing full steam. One of the biggest conversations right now about the transition to new platforms is the idea of cross-generation updates; the games that have them, and which ones will be locked behind pay walls. It can be a confusing landscape, and it’s disappointing when certain publishers reveal the Control they’ve exerted over developers’ plans to update their titles and decide that the Remedy is to ask players to fork out again.

Luckily for anyone suitably excited for Ember Lab’s gorgeous-looking adventure Kena: Bridge of Spirits, the developer has stated that the PlayStation 5 version of their game will be a free upgrade for anyone who’s purchased the PlayStation 4 version, at least for a time. Check the tweet below:

It’s a statement bereft of specific detail, but it’s a welcome statement nonetheless. It’s somewhat understandable that not every game will get this treatment, titles like Kena are very likely developed with the transition already in mind, so it’s great to see.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is releasing some time in 2020 on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC.
