The new generation of consoles casts their shadows ahead and of course also requires publishers to look into the future in this regard. EA has also announced a cool feature for upcoming cross-gen titles.

The new PS5 and Xbox Series X console generation will hit s tores later this year – and a number of game titles will be available for both these new consoles and the PS4 and Xbox One platforms currently available. So that players do not exercise excessive reluctance to buy games until the new consoles are available, EA has now also committed itself to a cool feature.
Microsoft is known to rely on the program called "Smart Delivery", which means that when you buy a game for Xbox One, you will automatically receive the version for Xbox Series X if there is one. This program is not only available to Microsoft itself, but also to third-party developers; among other things, Ubisoft also wants to make use of it.
Detached from the fact that such a free upgrade program has not yet been officially communicated by Sony, Publisher Electronic Arts has now announced that it will also enable such a free upgrade with its own games. As part of the fourth quarter 2020 fiscal year announcement, players are now saying that when EA purchases a cross-gen title for PS4 and Xbox One, players will automatically get the later upgrade to the PS5 and XSX versions for free just like with Microsoft's Smart Delivery.
How the system will be implemented in the case of EA is still open. For players this is already extremely good news!
