Horizon Forbidden West is an action role-playing game from Guerilla Games and is the highly-anticipated sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn. Set six months after the ending of the original game, the world is in danger again. A mysterious red blight is spreading across the land, killing anything it touches, and threatening to starve humanity. Aloy must venture into the unknown in the Forbidden West to find out what it is and how to stop it.

Along the way, she will meet new allies, new enemies, and encounter deadly new machines. The original game was released in 2017 for PS4 consoles. Since then, the PS4 Pro and PS5 consoles have made an appearance. Forbidden West is available on both PS4 and PS5 consoles, so can you upgrade your older version to the next-gen version?

In this guide, we're going to tell you everything you need to know about the PS4 to PS5 next-gen upgrade for the game.

PS4 to PS5 Next-Gen Upgrade

If you choose to purchase the PS4 version, you will automatically be allowed to upgrade your game to the PS5 version for free. This seems to be something that most of you are opting to do as the PS4 version is typically cheaper than the next-gen version. Ultimately, the choice is yours. You can choose to get the older console version and upgrade it, or just buy the PS5 version outright.
