Knowing how to get the Saints Row 3 PS5 upgrade will let players finally bring the Saints into the new generation, even though the backwards compatible version of the game runs at 1440p at 60 frames per second. Regardless, this remastered port brings a new trophy list and even lets players transfer in their PS4 save. Here’s how to get the free Saints Row The Third PS5 upgrade.
How to get the Saints Row: The Third PS5 upgrade
The first step to getting SR3 for free on PS5 is to have the PS4 version of the game. There are a few ways to go from there. Players can either search for the game on the PlayStation Store and get the game from there. It should have “PS5 Edition” or “Free PS5 Upgrade” somewhere on the game’s listing depending on the page.
Click on “Download.”
Then it will ask players to “purchase” the free version of Saints Row: The Third.
From there, it should prompt players to download the remaster or the PS4 version for some reason. The PS5 version is the bigger file of the two and should be at the top.
The second way is a little easier if the PS4 version is already handy. Go to the game’s hub screen and go to the icon right about the trophy count on the right side of the screen. There should be a button that is usually reserved for DLC there. Click on that. That will also have the option to grab the remaster. Just “purchase” it for free and download it.
This upgrade took a little bit to get going as like like Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and others before it, the process was not smooth for everyone. Deep Silver took around a day to fully deliver this upgrade to everyone who had the PS4 version as those owners were greeted with errors.
