From there, it is as simple as making your way to the PlayStation library, finding Horizon Forbidden West and you'll be given the option to preload the game from there.

It should be noted, however, that Horizon Forbidden West is the last game Sony intend on having the free PS5 upgrade for from the PS4 version. For this preload, players will only be able to preload the version they have pre-ordered. Those who want to take advantage of this free upgrade will, unfortunately, have to wait until the game's release on Friday, 18 February to do so.
