If you have the PlayStation 4 disc version of Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition, the PS4 disc must be inserted into the PlayStation 5 system to launch and play the PS5 upgraded version. As such, a PlayStation 5 with an Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive is required to play the upgraded version of the PlayStation 4 disc version.
Please note that the PlayStation 5 has two versions of Resident Evil 7 biohazard available; the base game and the Gold Edition, both displayed on the same product page on the PlayStation Store. To upgrade, please use the following steps:
- From the Resident Evil 7 biohazard PlayStation Store page, select the [...] button to the right of the [Wishlist] button.
- Select Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition.
- With your Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition disc is inserted, the option for a free upgrade should become available.
