Sony to offer free PS4 to PS5 upgrade for Horizon Forbidden West

-

Horizon: Forbidden West was originally set to release later this year but got pushed to early 2022 in an announcement during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live. While pre-orders recently went live, Sony faced criticism after the company announced the following on PlayStation’s blog post,

For players looking to have access to both the PS4 & PS5 versions of Horizon Forbidden West, please purchase the Digital Deluxe, Collector’s, or Regalla Editions. Dual entitlement does not apply to the standard and Special Editions.

This meant that owners of the PS4 Standard Edition of the game could not upgrade to the PS5 version, despite being promised the opposite during PS5’s launch, forcing players to spend extra on the Digital Deluxe Edition, Collector’s, or Regalla Edition as all three offered a free next-gen upgrade. 

Sony has now back-tracked on their decision, as Jim Ryan, Sony’s President & CEO, states “players who purchase Horizon Forbidden West on PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.” Furthermore, all future (digital & physical) cross-gen titles will require a $10 upgrade fee, this includes the upcoming God of War sequel and Gran Turismo 7.
