You got your physical PlayStation 4 Edition of LEGO 2K Drive in hand, and you have your PlayStation 5 fired up and ready to go, so how do you make sure you can enter the race on both PS4 and PS5?

We've got a quick walkthrough ready for you, but the order of these steps is key to getting the free upgrade and playing the PS5 version of the game if you bought the Awesome Edition.

Keep in mind that physical discs of LEGO 2K Drive for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can work on new-gen consoles within the same console family. A PS4 game disc of the LEGO 2K Drive Standard Edition will play on the PS5 but it will not be optimized for PS5. For the current cost of the LEGO 2K Drive Standard Edition, a PS4 game disc can be upgraded to a digital PS5 copy which has been optimized for that platform. This requires the PS4 disc to be inserted into a PS5 with a disc drive.

Buying a PS4 game disc of LEGO 2K Drive Awesome Edition also includes a digital copy of the full game on PS5 when the PS4 disc is inserted into a PS5 with a disc drive.

 

The PlayStation 4 Disc to PlayStation 5 Digital upgrade requires the following steps in this order:

  1. If you buy LEGO 2K Drive Awesome Edition (PS4) in a retail store you will receive:
    • A PS4 disc with the PS4 version of the game
    • An insert with a voucher to get all the Awesome content and the instructions to get the PS5 digital version of the game
  2. You will then redeem the voucher in the PlayStation Store using your PSN account, either on a PS4 console, a PS5 console, or the webstore
    • To use the webstore visit https://store.playstation.com/ 
    • After logging in select your icon in the upper right corner
    • Choose 'Redeem Code' from the dropdown menu
  3. Next insert the PS4 disc into a PS5 console where you are logged in with your PSN account
    • NOTE: Make sure that it is a PS4 disc in a PS5 console
  4. After that is done you will be guided to the upgrade option in the Game Hub, this will get you the PS5 Digital version of the game with the prompt “You are eligible for a free upgrade…”
  5. Once the upgrade is complete, you must have the PS4 disc always inserted in the PS5 console to be able to play the PS5 version of the game - don't lose it!
