Limited Edition Horizon Forbidden West Game Drive Officially Licensed Seagate Game Drive is Wonderful
Horizon Forbidden West has been out for a few months now and is one of COGconnected’s highest-reviewed games of the year so far. Deservedly so, it’s an amazing experience but it’s also a beefy hard drive storage sucker. Granted 80GB isn’t the largest PlayStation game out in the wild but by now you’ve likely had to clear out some space on your PlayStation 4 or 5. Fortunately, Seagate has the perfect solution with the Limited Edition Horizon Forbidden West Game Drive. So hard drive space won’t be an issue for me for the foreseeable future.
Seagate recently released the external “Horizon Forbidden West Limited Edition Game Drive” and we were fortunate enough to check out the 2TB capacity HDD. The timing is perfect, as my PS5 game library is growing, so it’s nice having this high-capacity add-on storage option.
The Game Drive works with both PS4 and PS5 consoles and features 2TB and 5TB capacities. These hard drives have been specifically designed and optimized with firmware to work with PS4 and PS5 consoles.
My 2TD drive is super light. I plugged it in and in a matter of a couple of minutes, I was ready to jump into action. It is connected and powered with high-speed USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0).
The Horizon Forbidden West Limited Edition Game Drive is slick looking too. The drive displays graphics on the exterior of the drive that highlights Horizon Forbidden West’s hero, Aloy. It’s perfect for storing all your games. While PS4 owners can play games right from the drive, PS5 owners cannot. To play PS5 games, you need to copy game data from your USB extended storage drive back to your PS5 console’s internal SSD storage. This is a bit of a bummer but hardly a Seagate issue.
I should mention a one-year limited warranty with a suggested price of $99.99 (2TB) and $159.99 (5TB). Not a bad price at all. It does not need a separate power adapter either which is nice.
If you are a Horizon fan and looking for something a little extra sexy to store some of your games, the game drive is an excellent option and I’d highly recommend it.
