Sony finally updated the digital store page for Horizon Forbidden west, making it more clear that the PS4 version comes with a digital PS5 upgrade.
This is your reminder to not buy Horizon Forbidden West for PS5 – you can download it on PS4 digitally or physically, and get a free upgrade to PS5! You should do this. It's quite simple. The PS4 version costs $59.99/ £59.99, whereas the PS5 is still listed at $69.99/ £69.99 (without any clear explanation why).
In fact, in the UK, you can get the PS4 version of game for even cheaper, with Amazon listing the new PlayStation exclusive for £52.95, while Currys also has it for £51 when using code ALOY15. You get the same game, but for less — it really is a no brainer.
There was some uncertainty about the PS5 upgrade despite previous promises from Sony. @IGNDeals followers. The upgrade was not addressed by Sony since September 2021, when they renewed their original promise of a free upgrade for all PS5 launch titles.
With the Horizon Forbidden West Store page getting a clairty upgrade, gamers can be assured that their PS4 copy of Horizon Forbidden West will be readily upgradable to PS5 upon launch. You can pre-order a copy by visiting AmazonOr Amazon UK.
This deal has one caveat. You can't preload the PS5 version if you preordered the digital PS4 version. This is a difficult pill to swallow, but it will allow you to avoid the $10 PS5 tax.
