    You'll need a more powerful rig than you did for Horizon Zero Dawn.

    Nixxes and Guerrilla Games just detailed the PC system requirements for the upcoming release of Horizon Forbidden West. This PC release of the game is out on March 21 and also includes the Burning Shores DLC along with some other bonus content

    Nixxes offers up a little chart showing a range of hardware and what you can realistically hope to achieve in terms of resolution, framerate, and quality across these different hardware tiers.

    Minimum Recommended High Very High
    Preset Very Low Medium High Very High
    AVG Performance 720P @ 30 FPS 1080P @ 60 FPS 1440P @ 60fps / 4K @ 30 FPS 4K @ 60 FPS
    Processor Intel Core i3-8100 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X Intel Core i5-8600 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Intel Core i7-9700 or AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Intel Core i7-11700 or AMD Ryzen 7 5700X
    Memory 16GB RAM 16GB RAM 16GB RAM 16GB RAM
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB or AMD Radeon RX 5500XT 4GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 5700 NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 or AMD Radeon RX 6800 NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 or AMD Radeon RX 7900XT
    Storage 150GB SSD space 150GB SSD space 150GB SSD space 150GB SSD space
    OS Windows 10 64-bit (version 1909 or higher) Windows 10 64-bit (version 1909 or higher) Windows 10 64-bit (version 1909 or higher) Windows 10 64-bit (version 1909 or higher)

    These minimum requirements are quite a bit higher than the ones for Horizon Zero Dawn. Zero Dawn only needed an Intel i5-2500K or AMD FX 6300 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9 290 GPU.

    Nixxes notes that there will be options to customize quality levels for: Textures, level of detail, shadows, water, terrain, field of view, motion blur, and film grain. There are also toggles for radial blur, lens flares, bloom, and vignette.

    As detailed about a month ago, this PC release for Horizon Forbidden West will also support unlocked frame rates, Nvidia DLSS 3 (upscaling and frame generation), DLAA, AMD FSR, Intel XeSS, and will utilize DirectStorage for faster loading. In addition, 21:9 ultra-wide, 32:9 super ultra-wide, and 48:9 giga mega ultra-wide resolutions are supported for those who game on triple monitor setups.

    Full control customization for mouse and keyboard are supported on PC. There is also "extensive controller support" which also includes Steam Input support for remapping and control customization. Those with a DualSense will get the added benefit of adaptive trigger support in this release.
