Fans of Horizon Zero Dawn may be interested in revisiting the game while they wait for Forbidden West. Guerrilla Games announced that Horizon Zero Dawn received a PS5 upgrade, so gamers can now enjoy 60 frames per second when playing the game on Sony’s next-generation console. Although it is not quite as good as Horizon Zero Dawn on PlayStation 5, this should make the experience more enjoyable.
Although it is unlikely that a Horizon Zero Dawn PlayStation5 port will ever happen, it is possible. Horizon Forbidden West, a cross-gen title, has a release date and it doesn’t appear like porting the original would bring much value. Horizon gamers will have to be content with the PS5 update, and the performance boost it receives.
A few gaming events are planned for later in the year like The Game Awards. So it is possible that fans will see Horizon Forbidden West before its launch in February. It may or may not get another exclusive PlayStation State of Play event, fans should still expect to see it again in the near future.
