relay, the upcoming sci-fi strategy RPG from Kadokawa Games, is destined to debut on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, but potential buyers don’t have to choose. Via the official Twitter account, Kadokawa Games has confirmed that PS4 editions of relay can be upgraded to PS5 editions for free.

The same tweet also confirmed that both versions of relay will be sold physically and digitally. There would also be a limited edition for collectors, although the account didn’t go into detail about additional content or goods that would be included in the pack. Given the relative scarcity of PS5 units on the market, the announcement should make it easier for people interested in purchasing the game to pick it up on PS4 and upgrade if and when they purchase a PS5.
While many recent titles have an upgrade option for PS4 to PS5, not all of them have been free. For instance, Death Stranding Director’s Cut, the 2019 PS5 edition Death Stranding, can be purchased by owners of the PS4 edition for $10. Meanwhile, the PS5 edition from Sega’s judgment was sold at a lower price than at release, but offered no “upgrade path” at all.
Previous tweets from July 2021 from relay Director and Kadokawa Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda also confirmed that: relay will have content playable after the end of the story. Yasuda stated that the main campaign can be completed in about 40 hours of play. The development team is also working on a post-end game challenge mode, similar to the “Labyrinth of Yomi” DLC content from god wars, the team’s previous title. And last but not least, relay will support a form of “lap play” also known in English as a “New Game Plus” type mode that allows players to replay the game but derive some benefits or rewards from their earlier completion.
relay will be released in Japan in 2021 for the PS4 and PS5. A worldwide release has been confirmed, but no specific date has been given. Learn more about some of the cast of “Star Child” characters in the game.
