Horizon Zero Dawn PC Requirements Revealed

Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC release is quickly approaching with just over a week to go before it launches on Steam. Ahead of that release, we now know what kind of system people will need if they hope to play the game during its first departure from the PlayStation 4. There’s of course a recommended threshold you’ll want to hit to enjoy the game at the level the developers will hope that you’d be able to on the PC, but if you can’t meet that, there’s still a set of minimum system requirements that you can look to hit to at least be able to play through Horizon Zero Dawn.

If you’re already planning on picking up Horizon Zero Dawn when it comes to the PC platform, you can check out the Steam page to secure your copy ahead of the release, but it’s not like they’re going anywhere if you want to wait.

Horizon Zero Dawn was first confirmed for the PC platform back in March which followed rumors that it would no longer be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. It’s not the first game to leave the platform for the PC via Steam since Death Stranding did the same, but the two games following similar paths set a precedent for more PlayStation 4 games – and perhaps later those on the PlayStation 5 – to eventually come to Steam.

Cuphead recently made an even bigger jump from being an Xbox One exclusive to now being on multiple platforms including the PlayStation 4 as of this week.
