Horizon Forbidden West preorder: Regalla, Collector's and Special editions detailed

You can now preorder Horizon Forbidden West for PS4 and PS5, with multiple editions and preorder bonuses up for grabs.

Horizon Forbidden West preorders for PS5 and PS4 have begun, and fans of the open-world adventure series have quite a few options to choose from. You can preorder Horizon Forbidden West digitally on the PlayStation Store or pick up a physical edition from major retailers or PlayStation Direct. Preorders start at $60 for the PS4 Launch Edition and go up to $260 for the Regalla Edition. A Collector's Edition is also available for $200. Both the Regalla and Collector's editions are out of stock at most stores, though we may see them restocked closer to launch.

The sequel to 2017's acclaimed PlayStation exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn, Horizon Forbidden West will be released on PS5 and PS4 on Feb. 18, 2022. Thanks to backward compatibility, any physical PS4 copies will be playable on PS5 (provided you have the disc drive model), so if you've yet to buy a PS5, you can rest assured your copy will be compatible with that console down the road.

Initially, Sony said only the Digital Deluxe, Collector's and Regalla editions of Horizon Forbidden West would come with both PS4 and PS5 copies of the game, with no free PS5 upgrade available with the PS4 Launch or Special editions. However, the company has now reversed this decision, and anyone who buys the PS4 version of Horizon Forbidden West will be entitled to a free PS5 upgrade. 

Horizon Forbidden West preorder bonuses

Preorder Horizon Forbidden West, and you'll receive the in-game Nora Legacy Outfit and Nora Legacy Spear. Fun fact: This armor set is based on the one worn by Rost, Aloy's father figure, in Horizon Zero Dawn.

The Launch Edition of Horizon Forbidden West gets you a copy of the base game and the above preorder bonuses. The PS4 version costs $60, while the PS5 edition comes with a next-gen premium at $70. The PS4 version now comes with a free PS5 upgrade, so it's more cost-effective to order this version.
