When What Remains of Edith Finch got an upgrade in July, those who redeemed the PS4 version of the game through PS Plus Essential were forced to fail to upgrade their game. Just over a month later, this situation seems to have been fixed, as PS Plus members now can get their free upgrade.
How can PS Plus members get the free PS5 upgrade?

The PS5 version of What Remains of Edith Finch can be redeemed from the PlayStation Store now by PS Plus members. According to Wario 64 on Twitter, players must search on a PS5 console for the games PlayStation Store. After switching to the PS5/PS4 version, the game will be presented in the drop-down menu. The second option is the one that those who downloaded the game through PlayStation Plus Essential have to choose to claim the free PS5 edition, which can offer up to 4K resolution and 60fps.
This isn’t the first time that PS Plus members have had trouble using free PS5 upgrades, but rare occasions like this can be made right for those players. A second time was when PS4 players who downloaded Final Fantasy VII Remake were first ineligible to the free PS5 upgrade to Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. Although it was initially an intentional decision by Square Enix, then it was reversed, but still the PS Plus Essential members could get the upgraded six months later.
That means many pieces of First Order destroyed when they fell off the packaging and were accidentally made to the ground, and even stuck in the box. The developer moves onto a new game set in the same universe that won’t be available until 2024 at the earliest.
