Following backlash, Sony will offer a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade for Horizon Forbidden West
Sony is now planning to offer a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade for Horizon Forbidden West. The U-turn comes after the company faced widespread backlash after announcing that there would be no upgrade path for Horizon Forbidden West PS4 players, despite an earlier promise of a free upgrade to the PS5 version.
To get access to both the PS4 and PS5 versions of Horizon Forbidden West, Sony had planned to force PS4 players to buy the $79.99 Digital Deluxe edition, $199.99 Collector's edition, or $259.99 Regalla edition.
Sony has also announced a $10 digital upgrade for both digital and physical versions of PlayStation first-party exclusive cross-gen titles. That means that the next God of War, Gran Turismo 7, and other Sony first-party cross-gen games will have a $10 digital upgrade option for PS4 owners who want to upgrade to the PS5 version.
