There is a catch with FF7 Remake’s inclusion in the PS Plus free lineup. Players who claim FF7 Remake for free via PS Plus will not be able to upgrade their copies to the PS5 version. For comparison, players who have bought the game for PS4 will get a free upgrade to the PS5 version.

While the lack of a PS5 upgrade path might not be ideal, it’s still quite a surprise to see such a massive triple-A title be given away to PS Plus subscribers not even a year after release.
