There was some confusion today about upgrading the PS5 Horizon forbidden westGeneral Chat Chat Lounge Sony uses strange terms on the PlayStation blog such as “Cross-Generic Digital Deluxe Edition” or “Double Rights”. In the Collector’s Edition, games are included digitally and digitally and can be played on PS4 and PS5, apparently. You quickly notice that there is something strange here.
In fact, with the standard version and the special edition for PS4, you won’t be able to switch to the PS5 version later. No upgrades are planned for this version. You can of course slide the PS4 disc into PS5 and play it later, but you will then play the PS4 version on your PS5.
In the LinkedIn FAQ (you are already listening) it says:
To access the PS4 and PS5 versions of Horizon Forbidden West, you will need to purchase the Digital Deluxe, Collector, or Reggae edition. ual three privileges do not apply to standard and special editions.
ual three rights mean that you can play on both platforms. Collector’s Edition and Regala’s Edition entitle you to it, such as the Digital Deluxe Edition.
This is also the reason why the game is digitally and digitally included in these editions, in the case of codes for PS4 and PS5. So even though the Collector’s Edition includes a steel book, there is no disc.
If you want Horizon forbidden West not to play on PlayStation 5, but also as a “real” PS5 game, then you have to plan for the long run and use the expensive editions.
Later upgrades to PS4 Standard Edition and Special Edition PS4 are neither free nor chargeable. Nor did the planners. The FAQ also states in no uncertain terms: “An updated offer is not currently planned for Standard to Digital Deluxe Edition.
Your purchase decision should also include how next-gen games will play on the old standard PS4. Maybe good, but certainly not as pretty as on the PS5. Upgrade to PS5 Later, it is not currently possible.
