With just over a week left until Guerrilla Games' Horizon Zero Dawn releases for the first time on PC, minimum and recommended specs have finally been added to Steam and Epic Games' digital storefronts.

The game was first released in February 2017 as a PS4 exclusive, and has since received an in-depth story DLC, The Frozen Wilds. The PC version of the game is launching as a complete edition, with all DLC included.

As picked up by PC Gamer, here are the specs for PC players:

Minimum:

  • 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bits
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K@3.3GHz or AMD FX 6300@3.5GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 (3 GB) or AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB)
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 100 GB available space

Recommended:

  • 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bits
