Sony is bringing Horizon Forbidden West to its PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscription service on February 21st. It’s arriving just a year after it was first released on PS4 and PS5.
PS5 owners who haven’t played Horizon Forbidden West are in for a treat, both visually and in the storyline of the successor to Horizon Zero Dawn. It was one of Sony’s biggest PlayStation games of the year in 2022, with a PS5-exclusive expansion, Burning Shores, set to debut on April 19th.
My colleague Ash Parrish reviewed Horizon Forbidden West and spent more than 60 hours hunting, exploring, crafting, and fighting in a world that’s “easy to get lost in.”
PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscribers will also get access to two horror games next week (The Quarry and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard), alongside the co-op sci-fi shooter Outriders. If those don’t keep you busy, then there’s also the chance to check out Borderlands 3 if you haven’t already or take on some mutants in Scarlet Nexus.
Sony is also adding a bunch of PS4 games to the service, including Tekken 7, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Earth Defense Force 5, Oninaki, Lost Sphear, and I am Setsuna. Both the PS4 and PS5 versions of The Forgotten City will also arrive on February 21st.
There are plenty of great choices this month, and they all arrive just a day before Sony launches its PSVR2 headset for the PS5. Stay tuned for our full review of the PSVR2 real soon.
