Hitman 3 PS5 Upgrade: How to Get

Developer IO Interactive has provided a simple and easy method of upgrading from the PS4 version of Hitman 3 to the PS5 version. What's even more convenient is that they will be providing the upgrade for both digital and physical copies of the game. This will apply to the Standard and Deluxe editions of the game.

After a customer purchases a digital copy of the PS4 version of Hitman 3 from the PlayStation Store, an upgrade to the PS5 version will be included. Once the customer upgrades their console, they can search for the PS5 version of the game in the PlayStation Store and it will be available to download for free.

If a customer purchases a physical copy of Hitman 3 for PS4, they can still upgrade to the PS5 version. While the disc is inserted, access the game library on the PlayStation 5 home dashboard and find Hitman 3. There will be an option to download the PS5 version of the game at no extra cost, but the PS4 disc must still be inserted whenever the game is played.

Hitman 3 is currently available for pre-order and will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Stadia, and PC on Wednesday. Unfortunately, there is no early access for Hitman 3.
