The upcoming release of Sony’s Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition for PlayStation 5 has been announced, and it includes the highly anticipated sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn along with its Burning Shores DLC. The company has also revealed that a PC version of the game is in development and is expected to be released in early 2024. The Complete Edition offers digital bonuses such as a soundtrack, an art book, a comic book, and in-game items.
Horizon Forbidden West is the second instalment in the action-adventure franchise that follows the journey of Aloy, a machine hunter who lives in a post-apocalyptic world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of civilization and mechanical beasts roam the land. In the sequel, Aloy travels to the mysterious and dangerous region known as the Forbidden West, where she faces new threats and discovers new secrets that could change the planet’s fate.
The Burning Shores DLC, which was released earlier this year, is an expansion of the main title that takes Aloy to the coastal city of Los Angeles, where she encounters a new set of survivors and a new type of machine that can manipulate fire. The DLC further adds new weapons, skills, quests, and locations to explore.
The digital bonuses included in the Complete Edition are:
- A digital soundtrack
- A digital art book
- A digital comic book titled Horizon Zero Dawn Vol. 1: The Sunhawk which tells a story set after the events of the first game.
- In-game items can be used to customize Aloy’s appearance and enhance her abilities. These include two outfits (Carja Behemoth Elite and Nora Thunder Elite), two weapons (Carja Behemoth Short Bow and Nora Thunder Sling), a machine strike piece (Apex Clawstrider), and a resources pack.
The Complete Edition will cost USD 59.99 (approx Rs 4,990). The base game costs Rs 4,999 in India, while the DLC costs an additional Rs 1,200. The Indian price of the complete edition is yet to be disclosed.
The PC version of Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition is being developed by Nixxes Software, a studio that has previously worked on porting other PlayStation games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Miles Morales. The PC version will support Steam and Epic Games Store platforms with enhanced features such as higher resolution, higher frame rate, ultrawide support, and more.
