Horizon Forbidden West PS5 PlayStation 5

Horizon Forbidden West is one of PlayStation 5's flagship exclusives, looking fantastic in its debut trailer from a few months back. As it turns out, however, you won't need a PS5 to play it at all; the sequel is also in development for PS4.

That's right — just like Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon Forbidden West is a cross-gen title, being made for both PS5 and PS4. It doesn't end there, either. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is also coming to both consoles.

As noted on the PlayStation Blog, these three games will benefit from a PS5 upgrade path. "The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive," Sony confirms.

Unexpected news, but good news for those not looking to get a PS5 straight away. What do you think of this? Tell us in the comments section below.
