Horizon Forbidden West Support Page Reveals There Won’t Really Be a PS5 Upgrade

Just as the Horizon Forbidden West pre-orders become available, a known Twitter figure that tweets about video games, Nibel, has discovered something really peculiar. According to the official Horizon Forbidden West support page, there really won’t be a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade.

This is something really mind-boggling and tough to understand, as the official support page for the game reveals that “if you want to upgrade your PS4 version to the PS5 version, you will have to have purchased the Digital Deluxe, Collector’s, or Regalla Editions. Dual Entitlement does not apply to the Standard and Special Editions.

But, to make it even weirder, on the question if you can play the PS4 version on the PS5 console, the page states, “yes, you can play the PS4 version of Horizon Forbidden West on your PS5 console”. I guess without purchasing the mandatory edition, there won’t really be a PS5 upgrade for free.

Previously, Horizon Forbidden West was declared to provide a free upgrade on the PS5 console without any other requirements. Sorry fans, but apparently, you won’t be able to get the free upgrade. Below you can find Nibel’s tweet regarding the matter.

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn doesn’t seem to have everything it takes into its offer, as PlayStation players are getting frustrated as they scrape through the official support page.
