Horizon Forbidden West is a monstrous game, and when you toss in its excellent Burning Shores expansion, it reaches an entirely different scale. It’s perhaps unsurprising, then, that the exclusive’s imminent Complete Edition – which bundles both parts of the package together – will become the first PS5 title to ship on two discs. Other examples include The Nioh Collection, but this technically included each game on a different Blu-ray, so perhaps doesn’t count in quite the same way.
We know the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will also ship on two discs, so this looks set to become a trend moving forwards. On the plus side, it’s a positive thing for future preservation that developers are using multiple discs, as the alternative would be to stuff the remaining data on a server – and that somewhat defeats the point of a physical release in the first place. If you’re planning to pick up the Complete Edition, it’s due out later this week, on 6th October.
