New controversy with the PlayStation subscription service before the survival-horror generation jump.
After leaking its existence days before, Capcom finally confirmed at midnight from Monday to Tuesday the landing of Resident Evil 7 on PS5 through a free update for survival-horror owners on PS4 and only for them. And it is that hours later the controversy jumped when several users who had the horror adventure with PS Plus Collection saw how they demanded a payment to play their next-gen version.
The news has been advanced by IGN, which indicates that the digital copies of Resident Evil 7 obtained through this attraction for PS Plus subscribers on PS5 are not eligible to update their version of the video game released in 2017 at no additional cost. That is, they are forcing to buy the game separately – currently it can be found in the PlayStation Store at 19.99 euros – if they want the improved version.
This controversy is not new with PS Plus. Already at the beginning of 2021 it was very popular that Final Fantasy VII Remake will not update its version of PS5 with PS Plus, forcing its owners to pay no less than 80 euros to make the leap to enjoy exclusive features and content. And so it was until months later Square Enix announced the improvement at no additional cost to all its players.
The PlayStation Plus Collection is an attraction included with PS Plus that allows users to enjoy a dozen games that defined PS4 on PS5, with much-loved titles present such as Bloodborne, God of War, Final Fantasy XV and this RE 7. reformulation of Sony’s bet, it has been guaranteed that this incentive will be maintained for all users of the service regardless of their rate.
Returning to Resident Evil 7, Capcom also confirmed the generational leap of two other installments of the franchise: RE 2 Remake and RE 3 Remake, thus joining Resident Evil 8: Village and the next RE 4: Remake scheduled for early 2023 .
