Do you have any reservations about how Horizon Forbidden West would appear on PS4? The images were posted by Guerrilla Games via its official Twitter account. They illustrate the fantastic work that the studio has done with the PS4 version; the reality is that intergenerational games can show significant changes between their old and new generation editions.

The revelation that the game looks so good on what appears to be obsolete technology is no surprise. Guerrilla’s affiliation with PlayStation Studios is why the game is particularly for the PS4 and PS5.

PS4 Edition

Of course, there will be some obvious discrepancies between the PS5 and the PS4 edition, particularly in terms of ray tracing, exclusive effects for the new generation Sony device, and DualSense functionality, but it is still remarkable that the game will look even nicer than Horizon: Zero Dawn, which established itself as one of the finest technical marvels of PS4.

The screenshots reveal two extremely different biomes: on the one hand, a lush forest with perfect lighting effects for PS4, and on the other, an expansive desert where the Longnecks walk, which we assume will function as the “Ubisoft Towers” once more.

Forbidden West

  • Forbidden West will feature a plethora of major updates for its first chapter, and it recently gave us some additional gameplay focusing on the game’s playability, which appears to have improved in terms of depth and control.
  • This next part of the Horizon story, like the previous, will feature an essential adventure element to gather various resources and find secrets, as well as several special skills both within and outside of combat that will enable us to approach encounters in a variety of ways.
  • Horizon Forbidden West will be released for PS4 and PS5 on February 18th, and it is already available for pre-order through various retailers.
