Due to the criticism Sony turns on and says: You can upgrade the PS4 version of Horizon Forbidden West for free.
Update from 06.09.2021: That there should be no way for Horizon Forbidden West to switch from the PS4 to the PS5 version, without buying one of the special editions of the game, which contained both versions did not hit Be sure to be excited. Now Sony has changed his policy in this regard. Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has turned to the fans in an update of the PlayStation Blog article to the various editions of Horizon Forbidden West. He writes that the game and the developer team of Guerilla Games wanted to celebrate last Thursday. But the offers you have announced is passed by the destination, said Ryan.
In 2020, it was announced that there would be a free upgrade option for buyers of the PS4 version of Horizon Forbidden West. Last week, it was no longer talking about. No wonder so that the message did not get well. Jim Ryan has now guaranteed that you will hold on to the original plan. Anyone who buys the game for the PS4 will receive the PS5 version at no extra charge. But that will only apply to Horizon Forbidden West. Ryan also confirms that in the case of all other upcoming first party titles that appear for both Sony consoles, the upgrade as at Ghost of Tsushima ten US dollars (so ten euros) will cost. This applies to the next God of War as well as Gran Turismo 7 and all other games developed by Sony-own studios.
Original message from 03.09.2021: Since GamesCom we know: Horizon Forbidden West does not appear this year, but on February 18, 2022 for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. You can pre-order the Open World game And of course, Sony does not let it take several editions on the market. There are four special variants. First, the Digital Deluxe Edition for 89.99 euros. This ensures the PS4 and PS5 version as well as the following extras:
- Two special outfits (Carja-Behemoth Elite and Nora Thunder Elie)
- Two special weapons (Carja-Behemoth shortbow and Nora thundershop)
- Raw material packages in the game with ammunition, soaks and travel packages
- APEX Krallenrader Machine Discharge Type in the game
- Exclusive pose and facial painting for photomodus
- Digital ArtBook
- Digital soundtrack
- Digital version of the first Horizon Zero Dawn graphic novel The Sonnenhabicht
For the same price as the Digital Deluxe Edition, you will receive the Special Edition, which is available exclusively at Amazon. It contains Horizon Forbidden West on disc, steelbook, mini-artbook and soundtrack in digital form. It is really expensive with the Collector’s Edition. It costs almost 230 euros, but also contains both versions of the game and next to the extras that stuck in Digital Deluxe Edition and Special Edition, nor a bar tooth and a Aloy statue.
But it works even more expensive: The Regalla Edition costs according to the colleague from the GamePro about 300 euros. But on Amazon it is already out of print. It also contains figures of Aloy and a bin tooth, but the Robo elephant comes in the Regalla design. In addition, the replica of a focus velvet stands, two art print cards, a sunshine replica, physical claws machine dispute figures, a canvas card, the above-mentioned digital extras as well as the mini-artbook.
You might have noticed you: With the exception of the Special Edition, both the PS4 and PS5 version are stuck in the special variants of Horizon Forbidden West. And that has a reason: an upgrade option does not currently exist. After Sony has already harvested in the case of Ghost of Tsushima criticism that the upgrade costs ten euros, the company now puts on it.
So if you do not want to play a PlayStation 5, Horizon Forbidden West, but at some point on that console in the appropriate version, you have two options: you wait for you to get a PS5 at some point, or you reach one of the special editions. Who buys the PS4 standard version, on the other hand and then later wants to benefit from the technical advantages of the PS5 variant, Horizon Forbidden West would then have to acquire a second time, as long as Sony does not move an upgrade option in the meantime.
