Guerrilla and PlayStation Studios received a lot of criticism for the decision that those who buy the Playstation 4 version of Horizon Forbidden West must choose the Digital Deluxe, Collector’s or Regalla editions in order to upgrade the game to the Playstation 5 version at a later stage. Fortunately, Sony has decided to listen to the critical voices and changed this:

“Thursday was to be a celebration of Horizon Forbidden West and the amazing team at Guerrilla working to deliver it on February 18, 2022. However, it’s abundantly clear that the offerings we confirmed in our pre-order kickoff missed the mark.

Last year we made a commitment to deliver free upgrades for our cross-gen launch titles, which included Horizon Forbidden West. 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.”
