It’s been a strong year for Sony’s next-gen console so far. PS5 restocks are getting easier to find, and a slew of high-quality games have launched including flagship exclusives Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7. If you’ve yet to enjoy these must-play titles, or only picked up your PS5 recently, your patience has paid off as they’ve just gone on sale for the first time ever.
Right now, Horizon Forbidden West on PS5 is on sale for $49 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s $20 off its regular price of $69, and a bargain for one of the best PS5 games currently available. However, if you want to save even more money, Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 is $39 at Amazon (opens in new tab). Even better, it comes with a free upgrade to the PS5 version of the game, just pop the PS4 disc into your PS5 console and you’ll have the option to play the full next-gen version of the game.
Similarly, for a limited time, Gran Turismo 7 on PS5 is on sale for $49 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s a saving of $20 compared to its previous price of $69. While the PS4 version of Gran Turismo 7 is also on sale for $39 (opens in new tab), unfortunately, this one doesn’t come with a free PS5 upgrade. So, if you want the next-gen version of the game you will need to ensure you buy the slightly more expensive PS5 edition.
Horizon Forbidden West is the long-anticipated follow-up to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn, it sees Aloy return to battle against a whole new horde of robot creatures and venture to an uncharted land as well. It’s one of the PS5’s best-looking games and offers dozens of hours of play. In our Editor’s Choice Horizon Forbidden West review, we called it “an exceptionally crafted sequel, delivering a thrilling open-world experience that fans of the original game will love.”
Meanwhile, Gran Turismo 7 is the latest entry in Sony’s long-running racing simulation series. In our glowing Gran Turisomo 7 review, we called it “the pinnacle of simulation racing, with a wide array of vehicles, customization options and experiences that both newbies and series veterans will enjoy.” We particularly praised the stunning graphics and the wealth of modern touches that enhance, but don’t fundamentally change, the series’ classic formula.
Both these games deserve a place in any PS5 library, and both will keep you entertained for months to come. In fact, Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 are the perfect way to fill the time until the release of Sony’s next blockbuster exclusive, God of Ragnarok, in November.
