Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition is coming to PC as well as PlayStation, according to the reliable reporter behind PlayStation Plus leaks.
Dealabs’ billbil-kun reports Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition should release on Steam and the Epic Games Store within the next month.
Sony hasn’t even announced Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition, but it popped up on Singapore rating’s board, the IMDA, in a now-pulled listing. The edition reportedly bundles the main game and its Burning Shores expansion. While Forbidden West launched on PS5 and PlayStation 4, Burning Shores launched on PS5 only.
Guerrilla’s Horizon Forbidden West launched in February 2022, and was awarded a 9/10 in IGN’s review. “A triumphant combination of enthralling combat, top-tier creature and character design, and a captivating open world, Horizon Forbidden West is an absolute blast and fantastic showcase for the power of the PS5,” we said.
The Burning Shores expansion launched in April 2023, and met with an 8/10 from IGN’s review. “A couple of poor boss battles aside, Burning Shores is a great new chapter with enough creative new bells and whistles to keep Horizon fans more than happy,” we said.
In May, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan insisted Sony was sticking to its guns with its current strategy of not launching PC versions of its games on day-one, dismissing the idea of releasing PC versions of PS5-exclusive games, such as God of War: Ragnarok, on the same day they launch on PS5 proper. Porting them over to PC two to three years after the fact has been working out well for Sony, Ryan added.
Sony ported Horizon Zero Dawn over to PC in 2020, three years after it released on the PS4, making it the first major first-party PS4 exclusive to cross over to the platform. The company was previously against PC releases, preferring to stick to consoles.
In 2021, Ryan said Sony planned to port more of its games to PC, starting with Days Gone, because its “ease of making [them] available to non-console owners has grown”.
Sony has yet to comment on the Complete Edition, but an announcement seems imminent. Sony has announced a new State of Play broadcast set for 2pm PT today, September 14, which will focus on indie games and third-party titles. But perhaps we’ll see Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition pop up during the show.
