Move over, Uno trophies on PS4 — there's a whole new Uno trophy list on PS5 to unlock. In what just might be the best day ever for people who consider Uno one of the best PlayStation Plus games ever made, if you log onto PS Plus Extra you can play Uno on PS5 right now with all your friends online. Plus, the upgraded PS5 version of the game is available free to anyone who already owns a digital copy of the game on PS4 — such generosity!

Ubisoft brings free Uno PS5 upgrade to PS Plus Extra

We're sure many of you have been shouting non-stop at Ubisoft with furious demands for an updated PS5 version of Uno. Well, good news — you can finally leave Ubisoft alone, as the free PS5 upgrade for Uno was released quietly on Thursday, November 2, 2023. Plus, since the game was already listed on PS Plus Extra as part of the Ubisoft+ Classics collection, you can also play this dazzling update right now with a PS Plus Extra subscription.
All eye-rolling aside, this new version of Uno does come with a fresh PS5 trophy list for collectors to unlock. Granted, much like the game's PS4 trophy list, there is no platinum trophy to grab here. I guess we'll just have to wait until Ubisoft releases Monopoly Madness for PS5 to sneakily collect our next platinum trophy at the next family game night.

In the meantime, looks like we can look forward to some ray-traced Uno cards on PS Plus Extra this month! To be clear: I am absolutely kidding. Other than some improved loading times, this new version of Uno seems to be exactly the same game on PS5 as it is on PS4.

UnoIf you own Uno DLC, that should also get a free DLC upgrade for PS5.

That said, if this is one of your favorite PS4 games of all time, then Merry Christmas — you just got the bonus PS Plus game of your dreams. Will you booting up a round of Uno any time soon? Looking to earn those Uno trophies on PS5? Let us know in the comments below.

Update: We've removed reference to Sony's PlayLink app series, as Uno has since dropped compatibility for this feature.
