The Sinkying City by Frogwares originally hit the PS4 in 2019 from developer Frogwares.

Now jump ahead two years and today developer Frogwares has announced that The Sinking City hits the PS5.. tomorrow!

What kind of next-gen content will it receive on the PlayStation 5? Well we are glad you asked!

– Up to six times faster loading thanks to the power of the PS5’s SSD.

– DualSense support so you can feel the ultimate Lovecraftian experience in your hands thanks to the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

– Did someone say 4K at 60FPS?! Get ready to see the Sinking City in a whole new light thanks to the PS5!

– Enhanced visuals with more detail than ever before.

Some of you might be like “Hey! Do I get a free upgrade if we own the PS4 version?”. Sadly, that won’t be the case as the Frogwares explains below:

The Sinking City is out on PlayStation 5 on February 19th, 2021.

Some of you have been asking about a platform upgrade for the game from the PlayStation 4 version, however this is sadly not possible at the moment.

The Sinking City on PlayStation 4 and on PlayStation 5 have different publishers on record. On PlayStation 5, Frogwares is the developer and publisher of the game. As the PS4 and PS5 games have different game IDs and due to an ongoing current legal and technical situation, this game is currently not eligible for a platform upgrade.

As the situation is being handled legally, it remains frozen for the time being on our side. 

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.

While we did enjoy The Sinking City when we reviewed it in 2019, some issues did hinder our experience. Could the power of the PS5 combined with these updates fix those issues?
