The ambitions are clear with this new opus to come on the last two generations of consoles, namely the PS4 and the PS5 : make the world of Horizon, and more particularly its prohibited West, a land of authenticity more alive than ever ! The idea of discovering this new episode is more and more exhilarating and Guerrilla Games maintains the hype general by diffusing, at regular intervals, informations to better understand the ins and outs of this sequel, whether in terms of scenario, characters or gameplay.
After the trailer released during the annual Game Awards ceremony which took place on the night of Thursday to last Friday, the Guerrilla Games teams wished to reassure players who have not yet purchased a PS5 by presenting rendering of his next game on Sony’s previous machine. Today, no still images but a moving excerpt, to be found at the head of the article.
The Prohibited West of Horizon does not bear that name without reason: these vestiges of the old world are still populated by a few representatives of humanity, but they are above all in the hands of metallic creatures who are ready to protect their environments and the treasures they contain, no matter what.
In this new excerpt, which offers us magnificent glimpses of the landscapes that players will tread in Aloy’s skin, we meet three inseparable creatures of this new opus, namely the Acid-Breathing Crawler, the graceful Helion-Wing or the Armored Gyrodorse! Screenshots, taken on PS5, illustrate them below.
We have understood it well: none of the machines encountered in the game are to be taken lightly, and even less those mentioned a few lines above! Their goal is simple: eliminate what they see as a threat, and Aloy seems to be on the long list compiled by these metal monsters.
Their hostility is no longer to be proven but that does not prevent our heroine will be able, like some other protagonists of the game, to make them listen to reason in order to gain any advantage during her expeditions through the lands of this second component. However, the video warns us: might not the greatest danger posed by these guards be that they fall into the wrong hands? Answer on February 18, 2023, that is to say in a little more than two months!
