More and more PlayStation games are making their way to PC, with Horizon Forbidden West now scheduled to be the next big blockbuster from the Sony studio to arrive on the platform.


Picking up six months after the events of Horizon Zero Dawn, huntress Aloy journeys to Forbidden West to find the source of a mysterious plague that is killing everything it touches.

Taking inspiration from Califonia, Nevada and Utah, players have the chance to explore a huge post-apocalyptic open world filled with giant mechanical monsters that roam the lands.
