    The PC trailer for Horizon Zero Dawn's PC port just dropped



    It adds ultra-wide support, graphical enhancements (improved reflections, dynamic foliage), graphical customization, unlocked framerate, control options and a benchmarking tool.

    Performance wise it seems well optimised. The benchmark pass with an RX580 and R5 1500x at original settings got about 60fps.

    Screenshot (420).png

    There are 4 presets
    Favor Performance (Low)

    Original (Medium)
    Screenshot (425).png

    Favor Quality (High)
    Screenshot (426).png

    Ultimate Quality (Ultra)
    Screenshot (427).png

    The recommended hardware for Original (Medium) settings at 60fps is an i7-4770k/R5 1500x and a GTX1060/RX580

    Think an RTX 2070 can run ultra at 60fps?

    Looking forward to when it drops, was about to purchase a used ps4 so I can play it and was overjoyed when it was announced for PC.

    Same here. This was the only game which came close to making me consider buying a PS4. Glad I didn't though. Even happier now that it's coming to PC.

    I played it on PS4 Pro but will get it on PC too! It is a masterpiece !
    However to fully understand the story and to feel the emotions of the past and present , you need to find as many hidden logs and voice recordings as possible.

    I actually bought a dualshock 4 to get the controller experience as well lol.

    The haptic feedback adds a whole new level of immersion.

    Ah, this looks amazing. So glad it's being released on PC

    Going to whine for a moment and wish that nvidia would announce Ampere already. I'd much rather play this game on High or Ultra settings than the Medium settings that are suggested for my GTX 1060. But the game should be great either way. Can't wait to play it.

    Besides Horizon Zero Dawn, there are quite a few PS exclusive which I'd really love to play but not as much as to actually buying the console:

    - last of us
    - uncharted
    - shadow of the colossus
    - bloodborne

    ...just a few that stuck in my mind.
