The long-awaited sequel to the critically-acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn, titled Horizon Forbidden West, was revealed during Sony’s PS5 games event in June.
Here’s everything we know about Horizon Forbidden West:
Horizon Forbidden West release date was notably absent from its announcement trailer, developer Guerrilla Games has since released a dev diary video confirming that the Horizon Zero Dawn sequel will release exclusively for PS5 in 2021. The game will also be available on PS4 consoles.
The official description of the game from the Horizon Forbidden West trailer: “Horizon Forbidden West continues Aloy’s story as she moves west to a far-future America to brave a majestic, but dangerous frontier where she’ll face awe-inspiring machines and mysterious new threats.”
We see new foes that Aloy will have to face but apart from that, the trailer doesn’t tell us much about the plot.
Virtually no loading screens
“With the PS5’s SSD, there will be virtually no loading screens,” Jonge said in an interview video. “In an open-world game like Horizon Forbidden West, if you open up the map and fast travel from one end to the other, or restart from a checkpoint, it will be super fast. When you boot up the game, you’re right there in the action.”
Horizon Forbidden West sees Aloy travelling to post-apocalyptic California and will features locations such as San Francisco and Yosemite.
You can expect improved use of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the PS5, and Horizon Forbidden West is no exception, with its unique mix of bows, slings, and ropecasters. Guerrilla Game Director, Mathijs de Jonge, has said that “The DualSense wireless controller adaptive triggers will help us to make the weapons feel even more unique and satisfying to use.”
