Last week, Sony gave us the sad news that the release of Horizon Forbidden West had been pushed to 2022, something that many rumors already hinted at. Finally, the Horizon Forbidden West pre-orders are live on the PS Store and bring new surprises.
Both the standard and special versions on PS4 will not include free upgrades for the PS5. Through a post on PlayStation Blog, the company provided details about the different versions of the game, including the Digital Deluxe Edition and Special Edition.
The most curious thing is that besides not including the free upgrade in the PS4 version, if the player with the base version of the game on PS5, he won’t be able to play it on PS4, since this cross-gen function is only available in the version Deluxe.
Check out the details provided on the game’s Q&A page:
- Can I upgrade my PS4 version to PS5 version?
If you want access to the PS4 and PS5 versions of Horizon Forbidden West, get the Digital Deluxe edition. Dual ownership does not apply to the Standard and Special editions.
- I bought Digital Deluxe, can I play on PS4 and PS5 consoles?
Yes, when you purchase Digital Deluxe, you will receive a digital authorization for the PS4 and PS5 versions. Your saved data will be transferable from PS4 console to PS5 console.
