The next PlayStation port coming to PC has been revealed, as Horizon Forbidden West brings Aloy’s adventure to both Steam and the Epic Games Store early next year. The recent robot dinosaur adventure from Guerilla Games has already proven to be a colossal success, as the second entry joins the growing PlayStation library on PC soon.

While the PS5 version of Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition is releasing on Friday, October 6, the PC port of the open-world game is set for early 2024. With the original Forbidden West releasing in February 2022, we could expect something similar of the PC port.

The port is being handled by Nixxes Software, which has brought a number of first-party PlayStation games to PC, including the previous game in the series, Horizon Zero Dawn.

You can expect to pay $59.99 / £49.99 for the Complete Edition, which will come with an array of content across the Horizon Forbidden West base game and DLC.

PlayStation and Nixxes haven’t announced what PC-specific features we can expect yet in the port, but the Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart port from Nixxes earlier this year should give us a good indication of what to expect.

Rift Apart came with ultrawide support for 21:9, 32:9, and 48:9 monitors, unlockable framerates, new exterior ray-traced textures, AI upscaling tech from Nvidia, AMD, and Intel, and DualSense support.

Horizon Forbidden West’s PC port is also coming right about when we expected, as PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan said earlier this year that PlayStation PC ports aim to come out around two to three years after the original game. Forbidden West originally launched in February 2022, with early 2024 giving it two years as a PS4 and PS5 game.

This means Forbidden West joins Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, the Spider-Man games, God of War, The Last of Us, Returnal, and more as PlayStation Studios games available on PC, with others undoubtedly on the way.
