Horizon Forbidden West is the highly anticipated spin-off of the critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn and was revealed on Sony’s PS5 games in June.
Horizon Forbidden West is coming to PS5, and perhaps to some extent PS4, and continues with Aloy’s story. She takes them to America’s wild boondocks, with a trailer that vigorously suggests we finally get a chance to go underground this time around.
We didn’t see much more of the game during the live stream to Sony’s PS5 in September. Unfortunately, we’ve seen just enough to realize that we’re overwhelmed by the latent capacity of open world gaming. (Also, we’re now thinking about the Final Fantasy 16 game and the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy Harry Potter RPG.)
However, it has been reported that a PS4 customization of the game would also happen in 2021 – regardless of Sony’s previous revelations about the importance of age specialties.
After Horizon Zero Dawn sold more than 10 million duplicates on PS4, a sequel seemed consistently a dead certificate.
Currently, guerrilla games are returning to this anecdotal universe to bring us another extravagant special exhibition on PS5. Voice entertainer Ashley Burch will return as Aloy in this section, while the trailer also kicks off the arrival of Sylens (Lance Reddick) from the main game.
While the delivery date for Horizon Forbidden West was clearly missing in its declaration trailer, designer Guerrilla Games has since delivered a video in the development journal confirming that the spin-off from Horizon Zero Dawn will only be delivered for PS5 in 2021. We currently know that this will also be the case on PS4, too – meaning you won’t have to upgrade to new gear to play the game.
A recent PS5 trailer at CES 2021 confirmed that the game is still slated for delivery in 2021. However, it is unclear when it will appear in the year.
Aloy’s journey continues into the Forbidden West!
