Horizon Zero Dawn was one of the surprise successes of the PS4 generation. Taking players through a vibrant landscape full of deadly animal-like machines, Horizon was one of the best games of the last generation.
Therefore, PlayStation fans were excited to find out more about its sequel Forbidden West. And yesterday, Sont shared 14 minutes of stunning PS5 gameplay for it!
Horizon Forbidden West Gameplay
Sony is currently working on over 25 first-party games, but Horizon Forbidden West is looking to be one of the most exciting if the gameplay is anything to go by.
While the gameplay itself looks familiar to those who played Aloy’s last adventure, Forbidden West’s graphics look truly next-gen. The lighting effects, especially in the large underwater segment are breathtaking and the combat looks even more engaging than the first game.
The sequence also showed off some of Aloy’s new gadgets like Shieldwing and Pullcaster which will make traversing the environment a breeze as well as some of the new machines you will be fighting like the huge elephantine Tremortusk.
Horizon Forbidden West Release Date
Horizon Forbidden West will be releasing on both PS4 and PS5, so gamers who haven’t managed to pick up Sony’s elusive new console will get to try it too. This is great news as another huge PlayStation exclusive game will be PS5 only.
Unfortunately, no release date was given for Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 or PS5. Although, developer Guerilla Games says that it will update fans soon about when the game will come out.
Players also shouldn’t rule out some kind of Horizon spin-off smartphone game as Sony is looking into bringing its most popular characters to mobile soon.
