Guerrilla Games has leveraged the PS5 for denser polygons on characters, more skeletal joins for improved facial expressions and more.
The newest member of the PlayStation Studios family might be at work on a virtual reality game set in Guerrilla's Horizon series.
PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan also confirms $10 upgrade options will be offered on all future cross-gen releases, including Gran Turismo 7 and the next God of War.
Horizon Forbidden West continues the trend of first party exclusives adopting unpopular pricing models on the PS5.
Other details about the game's pre-order bonuses and an in-game board game called Strike have also been revealed.
The Digital Deluxe Edition includes the PS4 and PS5 versions, Elite items, the digital soundtrack and art book, and more for $80.

Citing a "person familiar with the matter," Bloomberg's Jason Schreier says the decision behind the delay was made "a little while ago."
Jeff Grubb says he's "hearing" about a potential delay but that it's not a "sure thing." Next State of Play is also apparently in September.
Horizon Forbidden West will also receive more trailers and a release date this Summer according to an insider on Reddit.
"Exciting" updates also coming for indie and third-party titles. However, the next God of War and Horizon Forbidden West won't be featured.
Game director Mathijs de Jonge says that having to develop the game for the PS4 hasn't limited the developer's vision in any way.
Game director Mathijs de Jonge explains that though there is some destructibility, "it's not like the entire world can be destroyed."
"There's still a lot to do with a game of this size and magnitude, but we're in the final stages," says game director Mathijs de Jonge.
As was Guerrilla Games' Horizon Forbidden West- although the decision to make Gran Turismo 7 was allegedly only recently made.
Players will be able to climb anywhere in the wild frontiers of the Forbidden West. The map design is also a "little bit bigger" with more density and content.
Upgrading armor and weapons will now provide access to new skills and damage/ammo types. Resources are gathered from plants, animals and machines.
Aloy will also spend more time with her companions, both in the main story and side quests as per narrative director Benjamin McCaw.
"We are ensuring that owners of that console will have a great experience" and that it will "look fantastic" says game director Mathijs de Jonge.
Guerrilla Games confirms that the upcoming open world action RPG will have a Performance Mode on the PS5, for those who want to play the game in 60 FPS.
