Horizon Forbidden West is an action role-playing game from Guerilla Games. It is the sequel to the highly successful Horizon Zero Dawn. Aloy returns in Forbidden West and it seems that the world she lives in has become much darker. The game is set six months after the ending of the first one and a mysterious red plague is infecting the land. It's threatening to destroy the world and it's down to Aloy to save it again.

To do this, she needs to venture into the Forbidden West to find out what it is and how to stop this. However, she will encounter several new threats along the way including large and extremely dangerous new machines. Aloy will not be alone as new and old friends will help her along the way. It seems that there will be a lot for you to do in the sequel.

In this guide, we're going to answer an important question, is it coming to PC?

Is It Coming to PC?

No. It seems that Horizon Forbidden West will not be coming to PC at launch. It will be released as a PS4 and PS5 exclusive, meaning you will need to own one of those consoles to be able to play it. However, the predecessor to Forbidden West was Horizon Zero Dawn in 2017. Although it was originally a PlayStation Exclusive, Zero Dawn did make its way to PC in 2020. This means that there may be hope for Forbidden West to move to PC in the future but it would be safe to assume it will not be in the same year as it's released.

If you're undecided on whether the game will be for you, take a look at the Machines of the Forbidden West trailer below. In the trailer, you get to see the machines that prowl the Forbidden West and you will get an idea of what Aloy will have to go up against.

If anything changes, we will be sure to update this page. Horizon Forbidden West is due for release on PS4 and PS5 on February 18, 2022.
