Horizon Forbidden West is the next big title from Guerrilla Games. Preorders are now open for the regular and special editions of Horizon Forbidden West across PS4 and PS5, so if you're curious about what's in every edition of Horizon Forbidden West, we've got you covered.

This is going to be a huge game from one of the premiere developers at Sony Worldwide Studios so we're keeping track of things players should know about, such as a list of all machines in Horizon Forbidden West ahead of launch.

How to preorder Horizon Forbidden West for PS4 and PS5

There's several different versions of Horizon Forbidden West available for preorder right now, including: the standard edition, the Special Edition, the Collector's Edition and the Regalla Edition.

Before you buy the game however, there's something very important to note. You will get a free upgrade from the PS4 to the PS5 version, no matter which version of the game you buy. Sony previously promised certain games like Horizon Forbidden West would include a free upgrade from the PS4 to the PS5 version, and after initially backtracking from this promise, stating it was no longer the case unless you buy one of the collector's editions or the Digital Deluxe Edition, Sony is fulfilling this initial statement.

The prior games this was promised for, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, also received free upgrades with no issue.

If you buy the standard edition or other special editions on PS4, you will be able to get the PS5 version, which includes additional current-generation features like DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support.

With all that in mind, this will not apply to future PlayStation Studios games, including the next God of War and Gran Turismo 7.

If you want either the Collector's Edition or the Regalla Edition, we're going to suggest you act quickly, because these aren't likely to stay in stock for long.

The original Horizon Zero Dawn became a huge success, garnering critical praise and selling over 10 million copies since launch, as of February 2019. The original game also recently received an update allowing it to play at 60 FPS when played on a PS5 through backward compatibility.
