PS VR2: How to upgrade your games for free

If you own the physical versions of these games, then all you have to do is pop the disc into your PS5, and you’re ready to play.

The process for digital games is a little different, though many will automatically download the free PS VR2 upgrade.

If it doesn’t let you play automatically, just follow these steps:

  •  Find the game you want on the PlayStation Store via your PS5.
  •  Select the upgrade option on the game’s page.
  •  Select Download, and you can play your game once it’s complete.
