Bandai Namco announced today along with the release date of Elden Ring that the game will offer a free upgrade to next-gen versions for those who will buy the PS4 or Xbox One version on January 21, 2022.
Let’s face it, up until now, not a lot of people have Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 as stock shortages continue throughout the year. Those who are stuck with last-gen consoles like the PS4 or Xbox One, you are in luck as you can purchase Elden Ring early next year, and assuming there will be no more shortages of the PS5 or Xbox Series X, you will be able to upgrade free of charge.
For more information about Elden Ring, here’s an overview, via Bandai Namco:
The Golden Order has been broken. Rise, Tarnished, and be guided by grace to brandish the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord in the Lands Between.
Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware Inc. and produced by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc., is a fantasy action-RPG and FromSoftware’s largest game to date, set within a world full of mystery and peril.

Martin, author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Unravel the mysteries of the Elden Ring’s power. Encounter adversaries with profound backgrounds, characters with their own unique motivations for helping or hindering your progress, and fearsome creatures.
– World Exploration in the Lands Between – Elden Ring features vast fantastical landscapes and shadowy, complex dungeons that are connected seamlessly. Traverse the breathtaking world on foot or on horseback, alone or online with other players, and fully immerse yourself in the grassy plains, suffocating swamps, spiraling mountains, foreboding castles and other sites of grandeur on a scale never seen before in a FromSoftware title.
– Genre-Defining Gameplay – Create your character in FromSoftware’s refined action-RPG and define your playstyle by experimenting with a wide variety of weapons, magical abilities, and skills found throughout the world.
