It’s been a while since we’ve heard about Horizon Zero Dawn being announced for PC, now we know when the game will be coming to the much desired platform. Guerrilla Games has officially announced that the former PlayStation 4 exclusive will be launching for both Steam and the Epic Games Store on August 7 and will cost $49.99. Reclassified as the previously released Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition, this iteration of the game will include all of the post-game content, as well as some unique bells and whistles made only for the PC gaming community.

These unique facets are what PC gamers love when it comes to toiling around in their games. As shown in the trailer, Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition will allow players to achieve specific visual effects that aren’t normally available in console titles. This includes ultra-wide display support, dynamic foliage, an in depth graphic setting with numerous options, and expanded controller options. Perhaps the most desirable of the new features is the unlocked framerate, which was shown prominently in the gameplay aspect of the trailer. On top of that, there’s also a benchmarking tool to see how the game runs with your specific custom build.
Horizon Zero Dawn was already an impressively stunning marvel to look at when it launched in 2017 for the PlayStation 4. We can’t even begin to imagine how this will look on some high end PC builds that can go all the way up to 4k resolution. The game is not even out yet and it’s already one of the top selling titles on Steam, which is an insane achievement. This will also be a great holdover for those looking forward to the highly anticipated follow up, Horizon Forbidden West, which was announced during the PlayStation 5 reveal event last month as a console exclusive.
