Horizon Zero Dawn's PC version will release on August 7 with ultrawide support, improved reflections, and more

Back in March we learned that early PlayStation 4 showcase Horizon Zero Dawn was slated for a (somewhat) surprising PC release sometime this summer. Today, Guerilla Games announced that the open-world RPG's Complete Edition will release for PC on August 7.

The game's Steam page has also been updated with new screenshots, a trailer showcasing PC-centric features such as ultrawide resolution support and improved reflections, as well as opening up for pre-purchase for $49.99. It Is also available for pre-purchase on the Epic Games Store.

We thought highly of Horizon Zero Dawn when it originally released in early 2017, and The Frozen Wilds holds its own as well. Fresh off of the recent announcement for the PlayStation 5 follow-up Horizon Forbidden West, this mid-summer re-release of the well-regarded original seems like a great time to refamiliarize ahead of the sequel's planned 2021 release next year.

Guerilla also posted an FAQ for the release as well as a new set of ultrawide screenshots, which we've included below:
