“The next chapter of Aloy’s story begins on February 18, and she’ll face a storm of new threats: a world-ending blight, Regalla and her rebels, Sylens and his machinations… plus many new dangers that have yet to be revealed,” says Guerrilla narrative director Ben McCaw.
“But as she ventures into the frontier of the Forbidden West, Aloy won’t face these perils alone. She’ll be joined by companions both fresh and familiar, including stalwarts like Varl and Erend, along with new allies like Zo, Alva, and Kotallo.”
Of the key art, McCaw added: “We’re thrilled to show you our new key art, pitting Aloy’s crew against Regalla, her rebels, and some of the most dangerous machines the west has to offer.
“It also features Sylens, Hekarro, the Chief of the Tenakth tribe, and Tilda, a mysterious new character with a special connection to the ancient past. Can Aloy and her companions overcome the dangers of the wilds and the sins of the past to save a dying planet?”
In the anticipated sequel game, machine hunter Aloy has traveled west to investigate a mysterious and deadly blight. In these uncharted lands, she will meet strange new tribes and encounter ever more deadly machines.
Together with old friends and new companions, she must brave this dangerous frontier to find the answers she needs to save life on Earth.
This dangerous and unfamiliar land is full of challenges and threats, but Aloy will have new tools to help her on her way. The Pullcaster speeds up climbing, getting her quickly out of trouble; the Shieldwing allows her to safely descend from great heights (or surprise enemies from above); and with the Diving Mask, a whole new underwater world is open for exploration.
Not to mention big upgrades to her Focus, which now shows areas that allow free-climbing and gives her the ability to override more machines for mounts or combat.
Horizon Forbidden West puts the emphasis on tactics and choice by giving the player a huge variety of weapons. Aloy’s trusty Spear is good for close combat and enables a new set of combos.
Bows with specialized ammo types strip armor off machines to expose their weak spots. Adhesive grenades can be fired from slingshots, temporarily stalling foes. Plus many more, and all of them can be upgraded at a workbench.
Aloy won’t just be dealing with human enemies. The game also features a big new selection of deadly machines: Sunwings in the sky, Clawstriders and Tremortusks on land, Snapmaws and the smaller (yet not to be underestimated) Burrowers in the water.
Horizon Zero Dawn was released on February 28, 2017 to widespread critical acclaim, winning numerous industry awards. The game has sold over 10 million copies, making it one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games. An expansion, The Frozen Wilds, was released in November 2017.
Guerrilla Games recently also announced the new virtual reality adventure, Horizon Call of the Mountain. Created for PlayStation VR2, this unique experience has been designed to push hardware technology, innovation, and gameplay.
The stunning visuals and brand-new PS VR2 Sense controllers give a new meaning to being fully immersed into the world of Horizon. The story will be told through the eyes of an entirely new character. You will also meet Aloy, other familiar faces, and new characters along the way.
