Sony has decided that the standard edition of Horizon Forbidden West will get a free upgrade to the PS5 edition. Sony has been planning to do this for some time, but the company is back that week. Now Sony is adjusting its course again and the upgrade is free again.
a few days ago I showed Sony says that the standard edition of Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 will not get a free upgrade to the PS5 edition. Therefore, players will have to purchase the Digital Deluxe, Collector or Regalla version, which cost 90, 200 and 270 euros, respectively. Standard Edition costs 70 euros.
However, various media linked to posts where Sony says the PS4 version will get a free upgrade, regardless of the version and whether that version is digital or physical. There was one Blog post From Sony itself and Sony CEO Jim Ryan made similar statements in a to interview With the Washington Post, last year.
Sony will do it now do it. “Last year, we pledged that launch games would receive gene-transfer upgrades and even though Horizon Forbidden West has fallen outside the target release window due to the pandemic, we’re still keeping our promise. Players who play Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 buy the PS5 upgrade for free.”
Sony also announced in the blog post that “From now on, all first-party, PlayStation-exclusive, and multiplayer titles newly released on both platforms can always be upgraded at the same time from the PS4 version to the PS5 version for $10.
Horizon Forbidden West, from Dutch game studio Guerrilla Games, is scheduled for release on February 18. The game is a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, which appeared on PS4 in 2017. Horizon Forbidden West is exclusive to Sony consoles, but the first part also got a Windows version last year, so perhaps the sequel will get that in the long run.
