PlayStation has today announced it will host a PlayStation Showcase event on September 10 at 6 am AEST. It also announced that pre-orders of Horizon Forbidden West have officially opened ahead of the games February 18, 2020 launch.
On the agenda for the showcase is the future of the PS5, including updates from PlayStation Studios and “some of the industry’s most imaginative developers.” Viewers are invited to “stick around” after the Showcase to get additional details from some of the teams featured.
VR fans are likely to be disappointed though as it has been explicitly stated that this Showcase will no include any updates on the next generation of PlayStation VR. The show is said to go for around 40 minutes and will be live on both YouTube and Twitch.
Players who want to pre-order Horizon Forbidden West can do so today through the PlayStation Store or participating retailers. The game is available in four variants;
- Cross-gen Digital Deluxe Edition – Exclusively available on PlayStation Store
- Special Edition – SteelBook with a physical disc copy for either PS4 or PS5, it also features the digital soundtrack (via voucher), as well as a mini art book
- Collector’s Edition – Packed to the brim with special goodies, this one is a real must-have
- Regalla Edition – A more menacing take on the Collector’s Edition
If for whatever reason, you want to have access to Horizon Forbidden West on both PS4 and PS5, you’ll need to purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition, Collector’s, or Regalla Editions.
Horizon Forbidden West launched on February 18, 2022 and the next PlayStation Showcase takes place on September 10, 2021.
