Horizon Zero Dawn Is Now Available for Pre-Load on PC

PC players can pre-load Horizon Zero Dawn as of now, one day ahead of the game's launch on August 7.

Those who have pre-purchased Horizon Zero Dawn on Steam can now start downloading the game almost 24 hours before its launch on August 7.

After Death Stranding‘s launch on PC last month, now another critically-acclaimed PS4-exclusive game is about to be available for all PC gamers around the world tomorrow. Horizon Zero Dawn, which will be getting its sequel on PS5 in an unannounced date, is surely one of the best new IPs created by Sony’s first-party developers over the current-generation that gave birth to a whole new setting and idea.

While the original game was released back in 2017 on PS4, the PC version of the game will be available on August 7, and if you have already purchased it on steam, you can now start pre-loading the game. It’s worth noting the pre-load option is only available in some select regions. So, if you can’t get it now, you should probably wait until the game’s unlock time in your region.

While the game requires 100 GB of free space on your device, the download size is 67 GB. Obviously, the game requires more space on PC than its PS4 version as it will feature better graphics and all the post-launch expansions. Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition is available for $49.99 on Steam. Don’t forget to check out the system requirements for Horizon Zero Dawn before submitting your purchase.

The game might receive an update a few days after its launch as Guerrilla Games has recently revealed that PC gamers will face two technical issues including some locked 30 FPS animations and interruption in the performance of anisotropic filtering option. The developer is currently investigating the issues.

It’s yet to be seen how Sony will treat with PC gamers when it launches the sequel to the series, Horizon Forbidden West. Usually, Sony doesn’t tend to launch its first-party exclusives on PC the same time as it releases them on PlayStation consoles, though the policies might be changed for the next generation.
