Sony confirm to offer free PS5 upgrade for Horizon Forbidden West

Sony on Monday made an important announcement which seems to be one of the fastest reversals from the brand. The company confirmed that the Horizon: Forbidden West will be available free to upgrade from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 version. The company has taken this step after revealing the price of various editions of the game title. Sony didn’t mention any upgrade path for the PS4 version of the game which has disappointed many users and the backslash was faced by the company. Earlier users who want both the version of the game title need to buy the digital deluxe edition but it seems that the company has committed to making the upgrade free. Let’s have a closer look at the new announcement. 

“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,” read the official blog post. 



“I also want to confirm today that moving forward, PlayStation first-party exclusive cross-gen titles (newly releasing on PS4 & PS5)–both digital and physical*–will offer a $10 USD digital upgrade option from PS4 to PS5. This will apply to the next God of War and Gran Turismo 7, and any other exclusive cross-gen PS4 & PS5 title published by Sony Interactive Entertainment,” says Jim Ryan, President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment.

According to the official website, the next-gen upgraded pricing of the game title is affordable and it would be sold in two different SKUs for PS4 and PS5. The Horizon: Forbidden West on PS4 will cost you Rs. 3,999 and the PS5 version will be up for grabs at Rs 4,999 irrespective of free upgrade. But you can always save Rs 1,000 by purchasing the PS4 model and upgrading it free on PS5.
