Sony finally unveiled our first look at Horizon Forbidden West gameplay today ahead of its release later this year. The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 title was the focus of Sony’s latest “State of Play” stream today. Over 14 minutes of gameplay was shown.
Forbidden West is the sequel to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn, which was a critical and commercial success for PlayStation. Developed by Guerrilla Games, which is best known for the Killzone series of first-person shooters, this third-person action role-playing game starred a young girl named Aloy in a world with dangerous robotic creatures. She winds up discovering more about her past and the world itself in the original title.
Check out the new Horizon Forbidden West gameplay reveal below:
In Horizon Forbidden West, Aloy’s adventure continues as she is sent to secure a frontier called the Forbidden West. She’s attempting to find the source of a mysterious plague that is killing everyone that it infects. She has to go through new types of machines and will travel across varied terrain ranging from snowy mountains to ruined cities and tropical beaches. The map is said to be even bigger than the original and features iconic locations such as a ruined version of San Francisco.
