Horizon Zero Dawn system requirements forgive gaming PCs with prehistoric specs

The former PlayStation exclusive is finally available on gaming PCs, and you won't need a powerful graphics card or processor to jump in

Developer Guerrilla has lifted the veil on the details of its PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn, and if you’re wondering how one of PlayStation’s most visually impressive games will tax your gaming PC, there’s good news: the Horizon Zero Dawn system requirements have landed, so you’ll know if your rig is up to snuff well ahead of launch.

At a minimum, Guerrilla suggests an Intel i5 2500K or AMD FX 6300 processor and 8GB of RAM, paired with a GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon R9 290 graphics card. To meet the recommended specs, you’ll need 16GB of RAM and an Intel i7 4770K or Ryzen 5 1500X CPU, put together with an Nvidia GTX 1060 or AMD RX 580 GPU. You’ll need to clear out 100GB of space on your storage solution of choice either way.

The game also supports Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR upscaling technology, which should help boost fps if your rig is struggling to meet your target frame rate.

Here are the Horizon Zero Dawn system requirements:

CPU Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD FX 6300 Intel Core i7-4770K or Ryzen 5 1500X
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 (3 GB) or AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB) Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (6 GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8GB)
