Technically correct though I guess as the PS4 version isn't the PS5 version. The fact you can upgrade it for no extra cost is the bit they are not putting on the front page I guess.

 

It's good that they are honouring the free upgrade during the launch period is something I guess.

 

However really if you've already bought the game already they should give you the PS5 version for free anyway IMHO with any PS4 game you've bought already thar becomes available on PS5. Fine make you buy the PS5 version if you've never bought it. 

 

Anyway guess Sony will do what they need and if people pay they will take that as a sign that it's acceptable. In the grand scheme of things £10 isn't a huge amount of money. However when other companies aren't changing for upgrades to newer hardware.... 

 

Anyway this looks good - still working my way through Horizon Zero Dawn at the moment which I'm enjoying more than I thought I would! Looking forward to reading the feedback on this and hopefully picking it up later in the year!

 

They fixed the weird shop entry on Friday.

OK, I got this:

Horizon Zero Dawn, that you didn’t pick up, has the perfect blend of open world with story.

Yes. Overlooked it at the time. Really enjoyed what I've played so far. Just going to finish Ghost Of Tsushima before I head deep into HZD. I can only play one of these types of games at a time! Think GoT pulled me in a bit more there is something about ancient Japan and swords. Too many great games at the moment bonus that they run super smooth on PS5 too.

Glad this is doing so well. Looking forward to playing it after ER later this month.


ER comes out on the 25th?

You’re going to complete and have done with it by the end of February?!
 

:)

 

Also, what happened to Tuesday release dates?

Sorry - badly worded post from me. I meant I'll play it after ER, which releases later this month. I was going to pick up both this month, but I imagine ER will be enough open-worldness for now. I'll probably end up playing Horizon in April.

 

Reviews are good, though. Sounds like more of the same, but prettier, which is about what I expected. I'm hoping they do some cool stuff with the DualSense.

I’m certainly in for the pretties, but not till March. I won’t get a chance to play this weekend, and next weekend is taken…

 

The eurogamer comments are what you’d expect.

PS4:
1080p at 30fps
90,55Gb

 

PS4 Pro:
1800p at 30fps
90,55Gb

 

PS5:
2160p at 30fps / 1800p at 60fps
98,34Gb

 

- This comparison has been made with the launch patch applied to all versions.
- PS5 resolution mode applies temporal injection over 2160p (something similar to what we saw in Spider-Man: Miles Morales), achieving greater sharpness and no aliasing.
- PS5 FPS mode reaches 1800p resolution, but the difference seems bigger due to the technique mentioned above.
- The overall geometry on PS5 is taller. This can be easily seen on rocks or trees. This explains the larger size of the PS5 version, among other things.
- There is a higher density of vegetation on PS5 in some areas. However, in this sequel, Aloy interacts with all vegetation on both platforms.
- The general quality of the texturing is better on PS5, although there is not a big difference in this aspect.
- Reflections in PS5 Resolution mode are considerably better than in FPS mode. FPS mode reflections resemble PS4 quality.
- This game does not use Ray-Tracing of any kind.
- Particles are one of the elements that differ the most between versions, especially in the vegetation of the plague. On PS4/PS4 Pro there is little quantity and the FPS mode of PS5 reduces its quality.
- Framerate is almost perfect during gameplay. PS4 has some minor stuttering issues, but nothing major. In cutscenes, all versions have drops.
- Draw distance and anisotropic filtering are larger on PS5. FPS mode also lowers these settings.
- Load times are 7 times faster on PS5.
- The rendering quality of the water on PS5 is better, but in the case of PS4 the level is also satisfactory.
- PS5 adds additional shadows to various assets (particularly vegetation) and general shadows appear more realistic.
- The night sky on PS5 also has more stars and lighting effects.
- Horizon Forbidden West is a game designed for PS4, which guarantees outstanding performance on this platform. However, the improvements applied in PS5 make for a great look, much more numerous than usual in this type of oldgen ports.
- As a personal opinion, I would choose resolution mode on PS5. It is clear that this game has been developed with 30fps in mind and the visual improvements it offers are worth it.

The Guardian and The Telegraph were a bit sniffier about this too.

 

An interesting range of opinions, all being told.

 

I loved the first but my favourite part was the story, so intriguied to see where this one lands.

Yeah if that screenshot is any indication it seems like the story goes even more sci-fi and it's whether you are willing to go along for that ride or if you think it stretches past the realms of credulity as to whether you'll enjoy it or not.

 

I do think that screenshot should be removed though as it's clearly a pretty big spoiler.

What is worrying me the most is a number of the reviews mention Aloy is particularly annoying, never shuts up and constantly babysits you through what you should be doing next.  
 

That bugged me in the first game, and it sounds like it may be even worse this time out.  
 

Still can’t wait though.
