In great news for those that still prefer their games on physical media – and especially so when said physical media is complete and playable without going online or downloading extra content – it looks as though the upcoming release of Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition for PS5 will ship data-complete across two discs.
Beating Final Fantasy VII Rebirth to the punch as the first single game to have double-disc release on PS5, the Complete Edition of Forbidden West looks to clock in at 121GB and all of it has been pressed to those two shiny, circular pieces of physical media.
This detail was first picked up by X account @DoesItPlay1, which shared an image of the back of the game’s physical cover, including a “2 Discs” call-out and logo that looks distinctly like a pair of eyes that have seen some things. Shortly before the cover reveal, developer Guerrilla also confirmed in replies on X that “everything will be on disc.”
Unfortunately, while the Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition is set to launch tomorrow, October 6th for PS5, we don’t yet have a good idea of whether the physical print will land in Australia so collectors and physical media fans may have to look at importing a copy.
Here’s what the Complete Edition includes:

The PC version of Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition is set to launch in early 2024 and is available to wishlist on Steam and the Epic Game Store.
We gave Horizon Forbidden West a 10/10 in our review and said: “Horizon Forbidden West is an exceedingly clever sequel, a deep and addictive action RPG, a dense world that unfolds with an impeccable sense of pace, a visual tour de force and the masterful delivery of a promising concept. Somehow, by some sheer creative force a big, blockbuster open world game about post-apocalyptic tribal warriors with AR headsets fighting robot dinosaurs works even better the second time around. If you have access to a PlayStation you owe it to yourself to play this right away.”
