Sony have confirmed that three previously announced PS5 titles are also to be available on the PS4. These include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West, which were all presumed to be PS5 exclusives.
In addition, all three games will include free upgrades to the PS5, whether purchased on disc or digitally via the PlayStation Store. A statement from Sony reads:
We know that the PS4 community will transition to PS5 at different times, and we’re happy to announce PS4 versions of some of our exclusives. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will also launch on PS4. While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch. The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive.
As the statement says, the games will be optimised for the PS5, making use of the console’s new features including ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller.
