Sony’s Horizon: Forbidden West will be getting the RTX treatment on PC
Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition will launch with DLSS 3 on PC
Following the reveal of the RTX 40 SUPER series of graphics cards, Nvidia has confirmed that Sony’s Horizon: Forbidden West will be launching on PC this year with DLSS 3 support.
Horizon: Forbidden West will be launching on PC in the form of Horizon: Forbidden West Complete Edition. This version of the game will be released on PC through Steam, and the Epic Games Store. It will also launch with all DLC content that the game’s PlayStation 5 version has, including the game’s Burning Shores expansion.
Nvidia has confirmed that Horizon: Forbidden West will support most of Nvidia’s RTX feature set on PC. This includes DLSS Super Resolution, DLSS Frame Generation, DLAA, and Nvidia Reflex on PC. On PlayStation 5, Forbidden West does not feature support for ray tracing, though that could change with the game’s PC version.
Forbidden West is a sequel to 2017’s Horizon: Zero Dawn, which launched on PC in 2020. While the game launched on PC with some issues, Horizon Zero Dawn now has a solid PC port, and its success paved the way to Sony’s full-on embrace of the PC market.
With Nixxes at the helm, we expect good things from the PC version of Forbidden West. Nixxes has previously created the PC versions of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remaster, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, all of which have great PC versions. Gamers can expect to see DLSS, XeSS, and FSR upscaling in Forbidden West’s PC version at launch, and graphical settings that will exceed the game’s PlayStation 5 version. We can also expect common PC features like an unlocked framerate, ultrawide monitor support, and full mouse/keyboard controls.
