There was a bit of confusion today about the PS5 update from Harrison Forbidden West. Sony uses weird words like “cross-gen digital deluxe version” or “dual rights” on the PlayStation blog. In Collector’s versions, games are only included digitally and can be played plainly on PS4 and PS5. You quickly realize that there is something strange here.
In fact, with the standard version and special edition for PS4, you will not be able to switch to the PS5 version later. No upgrades are planned for these versions. You can of course slide the PS4 disc into the PS5 and then play, but you will play the PS4 version on your PS5.
I Attached FAQ (Someone is stabbed) It says:
To access both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the Horizon Prohibited West, you must purchase the Digital Deluxe, Collector or Regalla versions. Dual rights do not apply to standard and special editions.
If dual rights you can play on both platforms. Collector’s Edition and Regalla Edition You are also entitled to a digital deluxe edition.
That’s why the game is only included digitally in these versions in code format for PS4 and PS5. So even though there is a steel book in the collector’s editions, there is no disk.
If you ever want to play Horizon Forbidden West not only on the PlayStation 5 but also as a “real” PS5 game, you should now plan ahead and use the more expensive versions.
Subsequent upgrades to the PS4 Standard Edition and the Special Edition for the PS4 are free or free of charge. And not planned. The FAQ further states uncertainly: “The update offer for the digital deluxe version from the standard is not currently planned.”
Your purchase decision will include how the next generation game will run on the old standard PS4. Probably good, but definitely not pretty on the PS5. Upgrade after PS5, which is currently not possible.
