Here’s Every Game That Will Receive A Next-Gen Version

With the dawn of a new console generation upon us, a handful of publishers are allowing users to upgrade their current game collection to new and improve next-generation versions. While it’s still a small handful of games that will be making the transition, there are a number of upgrades that will be free should you choose to buy the PS4 or Xbox One versions. It’s hard to keep track of them all, but we’ve compiled a list of every game that will support the feature.

Since most of the games are multi-platform, we won’t be breaking them up into different consoles. This is simply a list of everything and the steps you’ll need to take if said upgrade isn’t free. Without further delay, here is every confirmed game thus far.
