Horizon Zero Dawn: Ultrawide Support On PC

Horizon Zero Dawn is the first such case when a Sony-exclusive title makes the jump to PC.

We could say that one exception doesn’t change the world, but it is important. Sure, Death Stranding is also getting a PC version, but there is a big difference. Kojima Productions’ game is not published by Sony but by 505 Games. Meanwhile, Horizon Zero Dawn (in its Complete Edition no less, containing the base game, as well as The Frozen Wilds expansion…) is going to be published by Sony. Or more like… PlayStation Mobile? (It is weird, but it might be due to Sony testing the waters. Before the PS1’s launch, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s predecessor, Sony Computer Entertainment, was placed under Sony Music…)

Regardless, the game’s Steam page has images, which is natural – a product should be getting shown properly on Valve’s digital store, too. However, most images have the small text saying „Captured from a PlayStation 4 Pro.” Except for one. It also got sneakily put amongst the rest of the bunch, with its 3440×1440 resolution. And it doesn’t have the PlayStation Pro text.

Anne van der Zanden, the community manager of Guerrilla Games, confirmed on the Steam forums that the image is indeed from the PC version, essentially confirming that the port will support widescreen monitors and resolutions in Aloy’s adventure, which will likely get a sequel on PlayStation 5 (possibly as a launch title, but it might happen at a later date, as the generation might not start in late 2020…). We can already add Steam achievements to the mix, but they said: „More details will be released at a later date!”

Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition will launch this summer on PC, and if sells well, Sony might consider bringing more PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games to PC with a few years of delay…
