During its presentation, which was dedicated to PlayStation 5, Sony introduced the new parts of God of War and Final Fantasy XVI, and unexpectedly announced the unexpected decision that several of its future games for PlayStation 5 will also be released on PlayStation 4.
So far, it has been confirmed that Horizon Forbidden West, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and SackBoy A Big Adventure are giving up their exclusive status of PlayStation 5, to also enter the previous generation of consoles immediately at the start.
We know that the PlayStation 4 owners will be switching to the PS5 at different times, and we’re happy to announce that some exclusive PlayStation 5 games will also be released on PlayStation 4. While these three games have been designed to take advantage of the PS5 and its unique next-generation features, such as ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy them as soon as they release. (Jim Ryan, CEO and President of Sony Interactive Entertainment).
Sony offers a free upgrade for the next generation console for those who buy these games in the PlayStation 4 version. Anyone who buys a game on PlayStation 4 in digital or physical form, can get the version for PlayStation 5 by downloading the appropriate update.
