Horizon Zero Dawn Launches on PC This Summer, Will Support Ultrawide

A little over three years after Horizon Zero Dawn launched as a PlayStation 4 exclusive great reviews and a warm welcome from the gaming public, it will finally see the light of day on another platform this summer. It’s going to launch on Steam, to be exact. The PC port will also offer ultra-wide support, which I’m sure many people will appreciate. It will also come with the Frozen Wilds DLC and other bonus content.

So, for those of you that ignored Horizon Zero Dawn because it was only available on PS4, what exactly is this game? Well, it’s an open-world adventure game with RPG elements. If this has made you roll your eyes immediately, I completely understand. However, Horizon has several tricks up its sleeve that set it aside from and elevate it above your average Assassin’s Creed or the like.

For one, Horizon has a great post-apocalyptic story, none of which I will spoil here. Suffice to say, with the current state of the world, it’s nice to have something that does predict a bleak future, but does ultimately offer a glimmer of hope. On top of that, the tools for hunting the machines and their mechanics are fantastic. You can’t just rush in and start wailing; you have to approach each situation with caution and strategy. It’s refreshing to have a game of this type that rewards you for using your brain instead of pure brawn.

So, there you have it, my PC friends. It’s been a long wait (too long, maybe), but you’ll finally be able to play the adventures of Aloy and shoot arrows at T-Rex-sized robots this summer. Trust me, the game deserves a chance, even if it sometimes does succumb to the pitfalls of your average open-world game. Plus, you’ll get access to all the DLC right from the jump. And, if you get stuck at any point, we have an extensive list of Horizon Zero Dawn guides for you to check out.
