Horizon Forbidden West is the highly anticipated sequel of the successful PlayStation game Horizon Zero Dawn. The first game was a PlayStation 4 exclusive upon release and became available on PC in 2020. With the addition of PC gamers, the game saw newfound fame. But can you download Horizon Forbidden West on Steam?
Is Horizon Forbidden West on Steam?
Unfortunately, PC players will have to wait before playing Horizon Forbidden West via Steam because it’s one of the biggest PlayStation exclusives of 2022. If you have a PS4 or PS5, though, you can jump into the game as soon as it’s out. The PS5 version of Horizon Forbidden West has lots of advantages that utilize the new-gen console’s higher processing power, custom SSD storage, 3D spatial audio, high-quality rendering, shorter loading time, and more. On PS4, the game runs smoothly too. If you have bought the PS4 version, note that you can upgrade it to the PS5 version for free.
Horizon Forbidden West has received amazing reviews from top gaming portals primarily due to how it has spectacularly built upon the best things about the first game. It’s one of the few games that has got its sequel almost perfect and fixed the flaws of the first. If you haven’t played Horizon Zero Dawn and want to play the sequel, note that it’s best to play the HZD to really feel immersed in Aloy’s journey in HFW.
