To make sure you have the right version of the game, Motorsport Games also gave information on how to do just that.

To upgrade an eligible digital PS4 game you already own to the digital PS5 version:  

  • Sign into your existing account on your PS5 console.  
  • Find the PS5 game in PlayStation™Store, or by Search, and go to the game hub for the PS5 game. 
  • Select the upgrade offer on the game hub and review the upgrade offer. 
  • Select Download (or purchase with the discount price) to download/purchase content.  
  • After the download is complete, you can play the PS5 game.  
  • PS4 games redeemed as a PlayStation®Plus benefit are not eligible for a PS5 upgrade unless otherwise indicated.

To upgrade an eligible digital Xbox game, you already own to the digital Xbox Series X|S version:  

  • The Xbox console will automatically update to the correct version for the console. This means that if Xbox Series X|S customers have the Xbox One version installed right now, they will get a notification of the game updating and it will be replaced with the free Next Gen version.
  • If users do not have it installed, going to their owned content and downloading it will download the correct version.
