These game drives are compatible with both PS4 and PS5, though naturally, if you use it with a PS5, you'll only be able to play backward compatible PS4 games on it, or use it as cold storage for PS5 games. If you're playing Horizon Forbidden West on your PS5, you'll need to make sure it's installed to an internal ultra-fast SSD.

Preorders for this drive aren't open yet, but you can sign up right now to be notified when preorders are available. We'll have to wait on tests that show just how the drive performs but it might being one of the best external PS5 hard drives available for anyone that wants to vastly increase their storage.

Horizon Forbidden West is slated to launch for PS5 and PS4 on Feb. 18, 2022. In our review, gaming editor Jennifer Locke wrote that "From its story to its gameplay and its jaw-dropping world, nearly everything in Horizon Forbidden West is so expertly crafted I constantly want to describe it as perfect."
