Why Is There No PS4 Version of Burning Shores?

Guerrilla Games has explained that it wanted to expand its vision for the DLC and fully take advantage of the PS5's power, which meant it had to leave the last-gen version behind. New technology allows Burning Shores to feature voxel-based volumetric cloud formations you can fly through, and of course, a boss fight against a gargantuan machine has been teased, and we imagine this is only possible on PS5 too.
