At the beginning of this week, we heard a rumor that said the following: a complete edition of Horizon Forbidden West that would not only be coming to PlayStation 5 but also to PC. Said and done: Sony has just announced that Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition is now a reality.
This edition will be available on October 6th, both digitally and in physical stores. However, on that day, it will only be released for PlayStation 5 at a price of 69.99 euros, while the PC version will arrive “early in the next year 2024.” This information, revealed in the press release, suggests a release in the first quarter of the year.
What does this edition include?
This complete edition of Horizon comes with content beyond the base game itself. All this additional material includes the following:
- Digital soundtrack.
- Digital art book.
- Digital version of Sunhawk, the first graphic novel of Horizon Zero Dawn.
- In-game items: extras for the Photo Mode.
- Unlockable in-game items during the story.
It’s worth noting that in addition to the base game released in early 2022, this complete edition also includes the Burning Shores expansion. Released at the beginning of 2023, in this downloadable content, Aloy travels to a dangerous new region south of the Tenakth Clan Lands, where a new storyline with new characters, machines, and adventures awaits.
We should not forget that the first installment featuring Aloy, Horizon Zero Dawn, was released on PC in the summer of 2020. Its reception was quite tumultuous, with a PC version that left much to be desired. Hopefully, this new PC port is better optimized and doesn’t have the issues that were encountered at the start with Zero Dawn (although these were eventually resolved with patches over the months, the game was initially in a very regrettable state).
