Horizon Forbidden West PC Features

Horizon Forbidden West is slowly making its arrival to PC! This is a highly exciting and momentous occasion, as this title was not only nominated for Game of the Year and earned several awards, but it's also one of the first times that PlayStation is bringing one of their games to PC so soon after release (Horizon Forbidden West came out only two years ago, which is the earliest a game has released since HELLDIVERS 2!). But it's not just a change of console and accessibility for many who want to enjoy the game outside of consoles... it also comes with all of the goodies you could expect from a PC title!

With the power and strength of PC comes all sorts of bonuses and improvements from the original title that are fantastic for those who enjoy taking full advantage of their PC! The first and most obvious change is the capability to enjoy the game with unlocked frame rates — gone are the days of being locked to 30 or 60 FPS, as with PC, you'll be able to go as high as your PC can handle, making the experience smoother and more life-like.

And if you're one of those gamers who sport strong, RTX cards, then say hello to the capability to enjoy the highly advanced upscaling! You can take advantage of NVIDIA's DLSS 3 upscaling for RTX 40-series or higher, or even AMD FSR and Intel XeSS, all of which are supported and ensure that you can get the most performance! And if you're really confident, you can even take advantage of NVIDIA DLAA image-enhancing technology and DirectStorage, which will improve the visuals and ensure your game loads as quickly as possible!

However, it wouldn't be a true PC port if it didn't appeal to even the most niche of audiences — and to that, Nixxes Software and Guerrilla present full Ultrawide compatibility! Unlike some PlayStation titles that are locked to 21:9 (still ultrawide by all accounts), Horizon Forbidden West will bolster support not just for these but the monstrous 32:9 monitors or — for those who are really dedicated — a triple-monitor setup for 48:9! With the vast, open-world look of Horizon Forbidden West, it's safe to say that it'll be an all-engulfing and beautiful experience for those who have the opportunity to enjoy it at these prestigious resolutions.

That's not all — you'll be able to choose between the PC-favoured mouse-and-keyboard setup to play with precise aiming or change to a controller. If your joypad happens to be a DualShock 5 sporting the PlayStation DualSense, then you'll get everything from the haptic feedback to the adaptive triggers! Either have the capability to customise the gameplay and controls to your liking or play with the immersive controls that make the melee combat — a newcomer to the franchise — all the better. 

If you loved Horizon Zero Dawn and are looking forward to the release of Horizon Forbidden West, then you won't want to miss out on the changes that are being included with the PC release! Take advantage of the best changes coming to many's preferred gaming machines and enjoy Horizon Forbidden West when it releases on the 21st of March 2024!
