We got our first look at the gameplay of Horizon Forbidden West. In the latest Playstation’s State of Play, it showed us new locations and new tools in Aloy’s arsenal.
The gameplay footage lasted for just 14 minutes. It showed off a portion of the game where Aloy is tracking Erend after being captured by Raiders. On her way of freeing him she travels on foot, underwater, and on the back of a Clawstrider. And also, she can glide through the air, which looks like a holographic umbrella. Aloy also has new Pullcaster, which should be easier and faster to get around.
The only thing that was missing from the incredible-looking demo was – RELEASE DATE. It’s easily one of the most anticipated upcoming games for PS4 & PS5. Guerrilla Games has talked about the enhanced features for PS5 like virtually no loading screens, impressive haptics that will let you feel the world of Horizon Forbidden West.
Since Horizon Forbidden West is a direct sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, it follow Aloy’s journey to somewhere in the states of Colorado and Utah, what appears to be the grown-over remains of California and specifically the San Francisco Bay Area. She’s making the journey in an attempt to find the cause of a strange blight that is killing off both flora and fauna, and also turning the weather into an endless, raging storm. We have a feeling she’ll find even more than she bargained for in the process.
