Horizon Forbidden West: 67% of digital copies sold in the UK are for PS5, despite the price

Horizon Forbidden West

According to the latest data released by GSD, 50% of the copies sold of Horizon Forbidden West in the UK in the week of its debut were purchased from the PlayStation Store. A figure that demonstrates how the digital market is now becoming more and more popular. Even more interesting, though, is the fact that 67% of digital copies sold are for PS5. As we know, in fact, the differences between the PS5 and PS4</a> versions are practically non-existent, since the next-gen upgrade is free, however the first one costs 10 euros more.

The data reported by GSD is actually extremely similar to that of GfK relating to the reatil market. As previously reported, 68% of physical copies of Horizon Forbidden West sold in the UK are for PS5.

Horizon Forbidden West, a promotional image Actually, it's not too surprising for both results. Although the PS4 version of the new Guerrilla Games work is the most convenient from practically all points of view, this detail has not been explained very clearly by Sony. You will surely remember the controversy for the two Standard Editions on PlayStation Store identical in content but different in price. Or how Sony has tried to clarify, actually generating even more confusion.

In short, according to data from GfK and GSD, many users, at least in the UK, have decided to buy voluntarily or unconsciously (we favor more for the second case) the PS5 version of Horizon Forbidden West, which is the more expensive one, despite not offering extra content compared to the PS4 one and the free next-gen upgrade.

In the meantime it has been available for a few days Horizon Forbidden West patch 1.05 for PS5 and PS4, here are all the details.

Fortnite brings back Aloy for Horizon Forbidden West's launch

Horizon Forbidden West protagonist Aloy is back and ready for it all over again in Fortnite Battle Royale.

As you can see just below, Aloy has now dropped back into Fortnite, and you can now acquire Horizon Forbidden West's protagonist through the in-game item store. You can purchase Aloy by herself for the sum total of 1,500 V-Bucks, or you can shell out a total of 2,600 V-Bucks if you want to bag the character plus the Spear Pickaxe, Glinthawk Glider, and the Heart-rizon Emote.

Aloy actually first joined Fortnite back in April 2021, nearly a year after Horizon Zero Dawn first came to PC in August 2020, and four years after Zero Dawn first launched as a PS4 exclusive. It's the same version of the Horizon protagonist that's now returned to Fortnite, just as she first launched last year in April.

Additionally, there's a special unlockable style for Aloy in Fortnite, but you'll need a PS5 for it. All you need to do is play one match with the Aloy outfit equipped on a PS5 console to unlock Ice Hunter Aloy, a variant of the Banuk Ice Hunter outfit for Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn.

Horizon Forbidden West finally launched last week for PS5 consoles, which is why Aloy's now landed back in Fortnite for what we can only assume will be a limited time. To find out what we made of Guerrilla's sequel, head over to our full Horizon Forbidden West review for more.
