Horizon Forbidden West Chaos for free PS5 upgrade ensures curious price

Horizon Forbidden West is an approaching action role-playing game created by Guerrilla Gamings and also published by Sony Interactive Enjoyment. It is readied to be launched on 18 February 2022 for the PlayStation 4 and also PlayStation 5. A follow up to Horizon No Dawn (2017 ), it includes an open world in a post-apocalyptic western United States.

First, Horizon Forbidden West was called a free upgrade to the PS5 version, if you buy it on the PS4. Then it was recently known that it should not give this free upgrade. This was not good at very many fans, which is why Sony has considered it differently: the free upgrade to the PS5 version is.

But because the PS5 version is actually 10 euros or dollars more expensive, the whole thing is now ensured for the pretty curious situation that you as a PS5 owner * best buys the PS4 version. So you get access to both versions and saves money.

What’s going on at Sony? Horizon Forbidden West costs less in the double pack less than for PS5 alone

That’s why: If you buy the PS4 version of Horizon Zero Dawn, you not only get the PS4 version, but also the free upgrade to the PS5 version. So you then have both versions for the price of one. The interesting thing about it: the PS4 version costs less than the PS5 version, which only gives you access to the one version for the PS5.

This pretty confusing like curious price chaos apparently means: whoever owns a PS5 and wants to buy Horizon Forbidden West, should not resort to the PS5 version – so strange that sounds like. Instead, you ride much better and cheaper, if you catch the PS4 version with the free upgrade.

How does it come? Sony has apparently calculated here simply and seizures. First it was said that all PS5 launch titles, which also appear for PS4, get a free PS5 upgrade. So Aloy’s new adventure. But then Horizon Forbidden West was postponed and was probably not a map of a map. For Sony, it was clear: then there is no free upgrade.

For most fans, the revelation was a blow to the stomach pit. Especially in connection with that a later increase to one of the significantly more expensive versions that contain a PS5 upgrade should no longer be possible. Accordingly, it hailed criticism of the decision until Sony ruded. Now the free PS5 update is still coming:

PS5 games are more expensive: However, since the PS5 titles should generally cost all more than it is the case with the PS4 games, this does not make sense in this case. In the future, it should be in titles like the next God of War or Gran Turismo 7 then run so that the PS5 upgrade costs about $ 10. That has been announced at least as soon as a precaution.

When will Horizon Forbidden West appear?

If you have pre-ordered one of the many PS4 editions from Horizon Forbidden West, you will mark the 18 February 2022 in the calendar. Then Aloys appears new adventure for PS4 and PS5. Originally, the Tital 2021 should appear, but the impact of the Corona pandemic and a better work-life balance of employees was postponed.

And now the big price question: Do you buy the PS4 or the PS5 version of Horizon: Forbidden West?
