Mercenary Kings Reloaded PS Vita - Crossbuy for PS4 version owners

-3 Deal Score
3,831 Views
Mercenary Kings Reloaded [playstation.com] was released today for the Vita (as well as the Switch and other systems), If you got the PS4 version (include via PS Plus) it should show up as free shortly.

UPDATE: The PS4 listing has been updated, but first add that (shows as a free purchase if you already owned the game on PS4, even via PS+) then purchase (for free) the Vita version

This is according to Tribute games, even though they have acknowledged a current issue here [twitter.com]

Note if it shows up for 19.99 and you own the PS4 version, the issue has not yet been corrected.

Its Crossbuy, but the game was part of PS+ way back so alot of people should already have the PS4 version in their libraries

I would edit 'free' to "crossbuy" in the title, but I dont see how to get to the option to edit the title

Yes, thats correct, according to Tribute Games they are in the process of working with PSN to get it updated. Also of note, I tried out my PS4 version (which was acquired via PS+) and it has been updated to the Reloaded edition, even though it does not show as such in Store

It looks like they updated the ps4 listing, but first I had to add that (shows as a free purchase if you already owned the game on PS4) then I was able to purchase (for free) the Vita version.

Note if the Vita version is still not Free ($19.99) the original "Mercenary King" owner may need to "repurchase" the free PS4 "Mercenary Kings Reloaded" in the PS Store link. Usually this says "Download" but I got "Add to Cart" instead and then went to checkout to get the PS4, PS3, PS Vita Download options. Oddly enough the original Mercenary Kings game tile wasn't rebranded as Reloaded until I manually Checked for Updates on PS4. Hope that helps people. You may even want to retitle this page as Mercenary Kings owners get Reloaded for free on all platforms!

This. So strange. On PSN web page on PC, it showed free for PS4, but I had to purchase and then showed I owned both games. Never an option to get Vita but now shows as purchased.

Yeah now when you hit Download while over any of it's store listings it will ask which platform: ALL/PS4/PS3/Vita. Kinda funny since PS3 is a download option but there isn't even a PS3 MK listing to buy it on PS store web site.

Yup, it works.
Gotta go here and rebuy for free (make sure it says for free):
https://store.playstation.com/en-...0000000001

After checking out, you'll be able to download the Vita version here:

I believe all Vita games have the PS3 option, all that does is download the title to your PS3 so you can transfer it directly to the Vita. I only use that for titles that you cant actually download directly to Vita, like some PS1 games (Command and Conquer Red Alert, the Capcom Collections, Metal Gear Solid, and Silent Hill for example)

Showing as free to me right now for PS4 (checked the All PS4 games and sorted by Oldest to Newest). Figured I'd update everyone and thumbs up the post.
