The collectors and special editions for Horizon Forbidden West have been announced, along with the pre-order prices for South Africa.
The game, a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, is set to release on PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles on 18 February 2022.
Pre-order details and upgrade for Horizon Forbidden West
Sony announced pre-order details last week. However, there was confusion around the upgrade path for the game if players want to upgrade from the PS4 to PS5 version.
Jim Ryan, President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment, has since issued a statement to provide clarity.
“Players who purchase Horizon Forbidden West on PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free,” Ryan said in the statement.
The free upgrade is part of the original promise to provide free upgrades for cross-gen launch titles, according to Sony. Despite the delay of its launch date, Horizon Forbidden West is still included as one of these free upgrade titles.
So what about the different editions of the game?
Besides the standard edition of the game, there are four other pre-order editions: the Digital Deluxe Edition, the Special Edition, the Collector’s Edition, and the Regalla Edition.
The Digital Deluxe Edition is exclusively available on the PS Store. It includes the game, as well as a variety of in-game items. This includes special outfits, weapons, and a resource pack. You can also get an exclusive Photo Mode pose and face paint, digital art book, digital soundtrack, and digital version of The Sunhawk, Horizon Zero Dawn’s graphic novel.
The Special Edition includes the physical game in a Steelbook case and a mini art book. It also includes the game’s digital soundtrack.
And now onto the two collector editions of the game…

The Collector’s Edition includes a digital edition of the game and a Steelbook Display Case.
