Gamers go wild for surprise free upgrade to 2020’s best game – here’s how to get it


PERSONA fans across Europe were surprised to find that an expensive DLC pack for Persona 5 Royal had suddenly become free. 

Persona 5 Royal is an upgraded version of Persona 5 by Sega, which was released in 2020 for the PlayStation 4. 

Persona 5 Royal added new characters, story scenarios, and enemies to the game

It received a number of DLC packs in the years since, all of which cost money to purchase, with the full set costing around £50 normally. 

The full set of DLC was subsequently included in the PlayStation 5, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch releases of the game, but remained paid for PS4 players

That changed yesterday though, when the DLC suddenly became free on the PlayStation store for PS4 players in Europe, the UK, and Australia. 

Curiously, the DLC is still paid on the North American PlayStation Store, where it costs $60, or about £48.

It’s not known if this is an error on Sega’s part, or if the DLC was supposed to be free everywhere and just hasn’t activated yet on the North American store. 

Either way, it’s best to claim the DLC as soon as possible, just in case it is an error, as any claimed DLC will remain on your account. 

How to get free Persona 5 Royal DLC

Players who want to get the free Persona 5 Royal DLC pack can claim it for free in two different ways. 

The first is through the PlayStation Store on their PS4 or PS5 console, where they simply have to search for Persona 5 Royal and scroll down to the add-ons section. 

The other way to claim it is through a web browser, on the official online PlayStation web store. 

Simply search for Persona 5 Royal DLC Pack on the official web store, or click on this link and click ‘Add to Library’. 

Free Persona 5 Royal DLC contents

The Persona 5 Royal DLC Pack contains three DLC bundles: the Kasumi costume bundle, the Battle bundle, and the Persona bundle. 

The costume bundle gives costumes for the player to use on their characters, while the battle and Persona bundles give battle items and high level Persona summons, respectively. 

The pack also comes with six other sets of DLC, consisting of costumes, battle items, weapons and more. 

All of these DLC items should make the game much more enjoyable for the player, and cut down on the amount of grinding necessary to make it through the game.
