Sony’s PS5 showcase was exciting for PC gaming, then hugely disappointing

For a brief, beautiful moment last night, Sony were good to PC gaming. Their PlayStation 5 Showcase focused on their new console, sure, but they did let the Final Fantasy XVI announcement confirm a PC release, and they did reveal the Demon's Souls remaster is coming to PC too. For a company cagey about even acknowledging the existence of other platforms, this was delightful. Then…

Sony will “explore” bringing more exclusives to PC

Earlier this year, Alice0 mused that it would be weird if Sony didn't bring more exclusives to PC and by golly it looks like they were listening to her specifically because now they're having a proper think about it. Sony now say they will "explore" bringing more games by Sony-owned studios to PC players.

Feature: When graphics cards go wrong

I accidentally unlocked Horizon Zero Dawn’s N64 mode

Over the last week, I've sat through Horizon Zero Dawn's lengthy optimisation process more times than I care to count. Most people will only ever have to do this once when they play Horizon, but in my attempts to benchmark the game with lots of different graphics cards, it meant sitting through that 10-15 minute start-up sequence every time I put a new card inside…

Horizon Zero Dawn benchmarks: what kind of performance you can expect on PC

Horizon Zero Dawn hasn't got off to the best start on PC. While we've had minimal performance issues here at RPS, others have found it downright unplayable due to frequent crashes, stuttering and more. Guerrilla Games have said that they're investigating these technical problems as a matter of top priority, and we expect another patch to be forthcoming very soon. In the meantime, though, I'd…

Feature: False dawn?

Despite stellar performance on our end, Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC port has been nearly unplayable for others

As you may have noticed, I've been quite impressed with Horizon Zero Dawn's PC port. I've been able to get the game running smoothly at 60fps on High settings even on a lowly GTX 1060 during the course of my testing, and I'm also very fond of Horizon's lovely ultrawide support, too. Sadly, this hasn't been the case for everyone over the last couple of…

Feature: Broaden your horizons

Horizon Zero Dawn is properly lovely in ultrawide, most of the time

Guerrilla Games have really gone to town on the PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn. Not only have they unlocked the game's frame rate and added in shinier graphics presets to give it PS4-beating performance on relatively low-end hardware, but it's also one of 2020's big PC games to get 21:9 ultrawide support. The latter is something I've been particularly looking forward to after the…

Feature: Now bring me that horizon

Horizon Zero Dawn on PC comfortably outperforms PS4 in this brilliant port

Horizon Zero Dawn stomps onto PC in just two days time, and I've been playing an early build of Guerrilla Games' post-apocalyptic cyber dino-hunting adventure to see how it runs now that it's left the confines of its console box origins. The results, I'm pleased to say, are excellent. Not only is this the best-looking version of Horizon Zero Dawn, what with its extra graphics…

Feature: Behold!

Horizon Zero Dawn’s world is beautifully borked – and I can’t wait to revisit it on PC

There's just four weeks to go now until Horizon Zero Dawn does a massive electric roar and charges towards us through our PC screens, and as RPS' resident HZD obsessive, I'm excited. And to my own surprise, possibly the thing I'm most excited about is the chance to just drink in the look of the game again. In fact, no. I don't want to drink…

Horizon Zero Dawn launches on PC August 7th

Alright folks, start up the post-apocalyptic phone tree. Horizon Zero Dawn now has a PC release date. Guerilla Games had previously announced plans for a summer release and then, to my equal parts joy and sadness, revealed a trailer for the sequel before gracing PC players with a date for the original. Well that's solved now. You'll be able to take Aloy on a good…

Predator: Hunting Grounds review

Predator – the furious boy who simply cannot get enough of spines – is up to his old tricks again in this, Predator: Hunting Grounds, a gory and asymmetrical multiplayer shooter from the creators of the equally gory and asymmetrical hide and seek simulator Friday the 13th: The Game. Four human soldiers embark on a mission to do a thing in a jungle, notionally unaware…
