Horizon Forbidden West is one of the flagship exclusives of PlayStation or was at least until the company decided to port the title to PC, and that too in the format of its Complete Edition. In recent times, PlayStation has issued an update on its official blog, confirming the PC release date for the action-adventure, and detailing players what to expect as the title drops later in March this year.

Thanks to the dedicated “PC Features” trailer that we have at our disposal, it’s easy to perceive that Horizon Forbidden West’s port to the platform is going to be no slouch, packing deep-dyed functionality and all. There’s unlocked frame rate, ultrawide display support, upscaling with Nvidia DLSS3, AMD FSR, and Intel XeSS, not to mention hefty DualSense support that will have you exploring the Forbidden West in next-gen fashion.

The rest of the goodies will unlock for you as soon as the title releases, save for one item that you’ll redeem by linking your Steam and PlayStation accounts. Here’s a summary of everything included in the Complete Edition:
