How to upgrade Chernobylite to the next-gen version?

On Xbox, if you already own Chernobylite, the next-gen update will be downloaded automatically once it is available on the server.

If the update doesn’t start automatically, please do the following:

  1. Enter “My games and apps”
  2. Scroll to Chernobylite
  3. Click the “More options” button
  4. Select “Manage game and add-ons”
  5. Select “Updates”
  6. Download the Chernobylite Update

Since the PlayStation 5 version is a separate product, the next-gen version won’t be available in the form of an update. You need to download a full version of the game separately.

If you already own Chernobylite, you will be able to download the full PS5 version of the game for free from PlayStation Store. Follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the “Game Library” in the PS5 menu and find Chernobylite in the “Your Collection” tab. When the next-gen upgrade is available, you should see an option of downloading two versions after clicking on the game’s icon: PS4 and PS5. 
  2. Choose the PS5 version and begin downloading the game.

For more information, check the PlayStation manual.
