Sony has announced that it is reversing its previous decision that standard and special editions of Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 would not be eligible for a PS5 upgrade.
Originally, those who purchase the Digital Deluxe, Collector’s, or Regalla editions of Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 were able to get the PS5 upgrade. Now anyone who purchases the game on PS4, regardless of which edition, can upgrade for free on PS5.
“Last year we made a commitment to deliver free upgrades for our cross-gen launch titles, which included Horizon Forbidden West,” explained Sony president Jim Ryan. “While the pandemic’s profound impact pushed Forbidden West out of the launch window we initially envisioned, we will stand by our offer: Players who purchase Horizon Forbidden West on PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.”
