PlayStation's exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn is no longer an exclusive. Sony has finally confirmed that the open world robot dinosaur prank is coming to the PC this summer. After months of rumors, the head of Sony Worldwide Studios and former Guerrilla managing director Hermen Hulst abandoned the nugget in an interview on PlayStation Blog.

"Yes, I can confirm that the game is coming to the PC this summer," he said, adding that more details of Guerrilla's new studio directors would be coming soon. The store page is now also on Steam and gives us a little more to continue, although there are no system requirements yet.
The Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition will include:
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- The Frozen Wilds expansion
- Outfit of Carja Storm Ranger and Carja Mighty Bow
- Carja Trader Pack
- Banuk Trailblazer Equipment and Banuk Slaughter Arch
- Banuk Traveler Package
- Nora Keeper Pack
Are there differences for the PS4 version of Horizon Zero Dawn?
It is the same as in the PS4 version, although that version also contained a digital art book and a dynamic theme. There is no information about what PC-exclusive features they may have, if any. The store page also uses screenshots from the PS4 Pro, so we're still waiting for our first look at the port.
According to Hulst, Sony is open to "new ideas on how to get more people on the PlayStation", but that does not mean it plans to release many more PS4 games on the PC. A job list for The Last of Us 2 suggested that a PC port may be on the cards, but Sony is not ready to reveal more ports.
"It may calm things down, releasing an AAA title for PC does not necessarily mean that all games will now arrive on the PC," said Hulst. “In my opinion, Horizon Zero Dawn fit perfectly in this particular case. We have no plans for day and date [PC launches] and we remain 100% committed to dedicated hardware ”.
