PlayStation State of Play, Guerrilla Games shared new Horizon Forbidden West PS5 gameplay footage and it was packed with new locations, some incredibly stunning and intimidating creatures and the same kickass Aloy we remember, with some new weapons at her disposal.
Whether you want to point towards Fortnite or Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we can all agree that Aloy not only having a glider, but pulling off an an Ult, then followed by the scanner and boost?! C’mon! This is every PS5 owners dream! PlayStation and Guerilla Games is not pulling any punches on the sequel.
Horizon Zero Dawn was a huge success for PlayStation 4, marking it as an instant staple for the Sony-specific platform. It’s easy to see why so many fell in love with Aloy, the RPG’s protagonist. She was strong, impressively so, and tough but she didn’t let that harden her heart, a heart with the capability to forgive, to survive, and to thrive. Never scared off from approaching a challenge head-on, the sequel with Horizon Forbidden West aims to carry on her strength. Meeting new characters, besting new foes, and exploring new terrain all await when Horizon Forbidden west drops.
The blend of overabundant nature and technology with the tribal societies that inhabit it has given us a unique world as it is, and now, they plan on expanding and pushing on the game’s narrative to present us with a world we already thought was large and glamorous, and they’ve given an even larger world to explore, more adventure and wonder to leave us breathless, and new combat to master. Guerrilla Games seems to be aiming for the moon and has taken an already loved game and made it even better.
