Sony announced earlier this year that its Guerrilla-developed exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn, would be coming to PC, and a new trailer has confirmed it will launch on August 7.

The port is coming to both Steam and the Epic Games Store with numerous graphical enhancements and features for you to customize the open-world adventure to your liking. At launch, Horizon Zero Dawn will support ultra-wide monitors, an unlocked frame rate, improved foliage physics, and improved reflection details. That's on top of a suite of graphical options for optimization, controller remapping, and an in-game benchmarking tool.

The Complete Edition includes Horizon Zero Dawn's expansion, The Frozen Wilds, as well as a digital art book and instant access to numerous weapons, outfits, and gear. These include:

  • Carja Storm Ranger Outfit and Carja Mighty Bow
  • Carja Trader Pack
  • Banuk Trailblazer Outfit and Banuk Culling Bow
  • Banuk Traveller Pack
  • Nora Keeper Pack

Horizon Zero Dawn utilizes Guerrilla Games' Decima Engine, which will make its debut on PC this month. Kojima Productions' Death Stranding was built using Decima and launches on Steam and the Epic Games Store on July 14. It supports many of the same features, all of which run impressively well based on our Death Stranding PC first impressions.

Horizon Zero Dawn originally launched as a PS4 exclusive in 2017 and introduced players to Aloy and a world inhabited by robotic animals. A sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, was announced during Sony's PlayStation 5 stream recently, and will launch sometime in 2021 exclusively for the next-gen console.
