The recently-announced Furi PS5 upgrade took many by surprise considering the game is nearly six years old but for Xbox players, the real surprise was missing out on the free next-gen upgrade and DLC that other platforms are set to receive. Such was the backlash that developer The Game Bakers took to Twitter to address the complaints, revealing that Furi “never captured a lot of attention on Xbox” and for a small studio with financial and time constraints, platforms had to prioritized.
Furi PS5 upgrade comes with One More Fight DLC for free
If you were subscribed to PS Plus in 2016, you might want to check your library as chances are, you downloaded Furi. The boss-rush action game was part of the service’s July 2016 lineup. Not only will you be able to get the next-gen upgrade for free, you’ll also receive a free update that includes all paid and free content that came with One More Fight DLC as well as all the improvements made since release (Invincible Mode, Furier Speedrun, Alternate controls, etc.).
If you want to experience the game from a new angle and don’t mind forking out $7, then you can grab the new Onnamusha DLC that gives you an alternate main character to play with. Onnamusha Rider comes with her own combat skills. Like the next-gen upgrade and free content update, Onnamusha will skip Xbox platforms.
Onnamusha Rider is joining the fight for freedom! The new DLC for Furi with an alternate main character will launch May 17 on PC, PS4, PS5 & Nintendo Switch.
