Sony’s latest TV advert for PlayStation 5 has a small disclaimer at the bottom of the screen that reveals that Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Returnal are all expected to launch before the middle of 2021. Horizon Forbidden West is going to take longer and will arrive in the second half of 2021, I would guess that’s going to be the big Christmas release for Sony.
You can see the advert below, or,. you know, just turn on your television as it’s showing in the UK right now.
Sony have confirmed that three of the games previously assumed to be next-gen PlayStation 5 exclusives are also actually coming to PlayStation 4. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will all be cross-gen releases, coming to PS4 as well as PS5.
All three will also offer free upgrades from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, whether you buy digitally or physically.
Sony wrote on their blog:
While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch. The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive.
Horizon Zero Dawn sequel Horizon Forbidden West was revealed during the PS5 event and will see Aloy and the mechanical creatures arrive on the console in a big way. Guerrilla Games has released two new screenshots that show very different areas of Horizon Forbidden West. The first shows a downed plane in a waterful surrounded by greenery and what appears to be machine pterodactyl. The second is in the desert and seems to show some kind of encampment.
