If you just built a new rig or just a hardcore PC gamer, this game is the best for you. This is bold to say but the PS did not do justice to this game in terms of graphics as this game boasts one of the best graphics and there are many ways in which you can customise to get the best out of your graphics card. 

You play as Aloy, Raised as an outcast in the Nora tribe, Aloy’s journey is marked by her relentless pursuit of answers about her own origins and the mysteries of the Old Ones, the advanced civilization that perished centuries ago. Gifted with a keen intellect and a natural affinity for technology, she wields a variety of weapons and tools, including her trusty spear and the versatile Focus device that allows her to scan her surroundings and uncover hidden secrets.

The Combat is so much smoother and feels easy on the PC as there is no need to aim using joysticks or learn how to change your inventory on a controller as it is complicated on the PS and the game is definitely punishing if you are a few seconds late.
On the PC though, you won’t face any of these problems as it can be pretty easy to aim on the mouse and you can scroll through your inventory pretty quickly as well

The game also has a pretty good skill tree where you can customize your play style according to the tree as it has a vast selection of skills which can help you throughout the game. Stealth can be a great option if you want to end things quickly without being at any risk,
There are many combat options as well that you need to check them yourself as I want to keep this as spoiler-free as possible. 

This game shines in the sound department as every single sound that takes place can be heard and the sound while combat gives one the thrill and the action as if you are Aloy herself and is immersed in the world of Horizon. Oh and did I forget to mention that this game has won many awards just for the sound.

This game is well worth it and you need to check this game out as the gameplay, the graphics and the sound design speak for itself
