Horizon Forbidden West, the new installment of Aloy’s post-apocalyptic adventure saga, has just announced its different editions for its final release next February 18, 2022, all after the announcement of Guerrilla Games of a slight delay in its arrival to the market for PS4 and PS5. Although one of the most sensitive aspects of the very varied editions with which the video game will be put on sale is the possibility or not to update to the PlayStation 5 version from the PlayStation 4 version of the game, a possibility only available in the three most expensive editions of the PlayStation Studios title.
Free update: Digital Deluxe, Collector and Regalla
This is how it is extracted from the section of questions and answers that PlayStation has made available to its users where some doubts about the launch of the title are clarified. And is that if a user wants to update Horizon Forbidden West in its version from PS4 to PS5, you can only do so by acquiring the editions Digital Deluxe, Collector O Regalla.
So much so, that the call double purchase right with the video game it is not obtained with the editions standard or special, so that a user of one of these two editions (the most economically affordable) will not be able to take advantage of the advantages of the new generation when switching from one system to the other. Of course, the saved games they can be transferred. Of course, it is a fact to take into account for those users who purchase the game on PS4 and want to switch to PS5 later, to take advantage of the graphics and performance improvements of the new generation version.
Horizon Forbidden West will hit the market on February 18, 2022, for both PS4 and PS5, although the new generation version will offer improvements such as two graphics modes (one with greater fluidity and another with better visual quality), faster charges or compatibility with haptic vibration and the adaptive triggers of the DualSense, among others.
