Last Thursday we had the presentation in society of the different editions of Horizon: Forbidden West, one of the most anticipated exclusives for PS5 and also for what is presumed to be the last death throes of PlayStation 4. However, the joy of seeing this title again was not complete, since the fans received a jug of cold water: only they could make the generational leap, from PS4 to PS5, if they got the three most expensive editions: Digital Deluxe, Collecionista and Regalia. Fortunately, Sony, in the mouth of his own CEO Jim Ryan, has rectified this measure, and his policy in this regard from now on.
In this way, this policy will be common for all games released from PlayStation Studios, which includes another of the expected greats such as the sequel to God of War and Gran Turismo 7, which in theory will be the big AAA first party for the next launch. It involves repeating the options we saw with Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, which could be improved from PS4 to PS5 with a payment of 9.99 euros.
Ryan confirms rectification
“Last year we made a commitment to develop free updates for our intergenerational games, including Horizon: Forbidden West,” Ryan begins by explaining. “As the profound impact of the pandemic pushed the game beyond its initial launch window, we will continue our offering: Players who purchase Horizon: Forbidden West on PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.”
“I also want to confirm that from now on, intergenerational PlayStation exclusive first party games – released on PS4 and PS5, both physical and digital – can be enhanced with a $ 10 upgrade,” confirms Ryan. “This will apply to the upcoming God of War and Gran Turismo 7, as well as any other intergenerational game released by Sony Interactive Entertainment.”
The price of this update It is not confirmed that it is also 10 euros, since no official pronouncement has been made by the Japanese company, although it is to be expected that this is the case.
