How does Doom Eternal upgrade to Xbox Series X and PS5?

Since June 29th, the hell shooting game Doom Eternal has finally upgraded the PS5 and Xbox Series X /S. This brings some technical and visual improvements. However, the lack of a feature on the PS5 makes many players feel annoyed.

What kind of upgrade is that? The new upgrade brings various improvements and new features to PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. For example, and this includes ray tracing, which is now also available for PC.

The following is a brief overview of the main new features of the upgrade:

Ray tracing for Xbox Series X and PS5 (excluding Xbox Series S)
Various graphics modes to improve performance, now up to 120 FPS
4k / 60FPS can now run on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Cross-Gen and old game consoles in combat mode (PS5 to PS4 and Xbox Series X | S to Xbox One)

If you switch from PS4 to PS5, you must start over
This is the problem: although some data can be transferred through your Bethesda account, your Doom Eternal campaigns and multiplayer save games cannot be transferred for PS5 players.
Therefore, if you change the version, you must start a new round and reapply your progress in the story and multiplayer games. This is unusual for next-generation ports.
So far, most games like Marvel’s Avengers and other games can complete your progress without any problems. Strangely, in the case of Doom Eternal, only the PS5 version is affected; on Xbox Series X | S, the game can be imported and saved without any problems. Therefore, some players are not satisfied with the upgrade.

In addition, some PS5 players seem to have problems downloading the upgrade. It was not installed correctly in some respects.
For many players, Doom Eternal seems to be blocked in the Playstation store. Bethesda has already commented on this in a tweet. Solve this problem and hope it will be resolved soon.
