To upgrade Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga from PS4 to PS5, you'll need to go through a slightly confusing process but the upgrade is at least free. If you've been playing the game on PS4 but have only just got a PS5, you thankfully won't lose any progress and will get to benefit from the extra power of the PS5. However, the method for getting Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga and other games upgraded isn't that straightforward, particularly if you've not followed it before, and in some cases you need to have the right version of the console to make it work. We've got all the details below on exactly how to upgrade Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga from PS4 to PS5.
Upgrade Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga PS4 disc to PS5

To upgrade from the Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga PS4 disc to the PS5 digital version, the first thing you need is a PS5 console with a disc drive – unfortunately, this means that if you have the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition this upgrade option isn't available to you. To get started, insert the PS4 disc into your PS5 then navigate to the Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga game hub. Here you should see the option to claim the upgrade offer on your account, after which you can download the PS5 digital version to your console.
Note that although you're downloading and installing the PS5 digital version of Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga to your internal hard drive, you'll need to insert the original PS4 disc into your console before you can play the PS5 version. This is to confirm that you still own and are currently in possession of the disc, so make sure you look after it.
Upgrade Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga PS4 digital to PS5
If you've bought the standard or deluxe edition of Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga digitally for PS4, then you don't need to upgrade as this purchase automatically includes the digital PS5 version as well. When you access your PSN account's Game Library on a PS5 console and select Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga from your list of owned titled, you should be prompted to choose between the PS5 and PS4 versions, so pick the PS5 version to set it downloading and you'll be all set.
If, for whatever reason, you want to access the PS4 version of the game on your PS5, then navigate to the Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga game hub and select the [...] button to switch between the different versions – note that this will require a separate download too if you don't already have it installed.
