Horizon Zero Dawn was arguably one of the best video games on the PlayStation 4, and now — at its Future of Gaming event — Sony has revealed the sequel, headed to the PlayStation 5, called Horizon Forbidden West.
You can watch the full trailer below.
Horizon is set in a strange alternate future, where humanity is all but extinct and robot dinosaurs roam the plains. It sounds bizarre and implausible, but somehow it works. Mostly as the result of a surprisingly well-designed universe and a story that somehow ties all these strange threads together. Our sister site GameSpot lavished it with praise in its 9/10 review.
Horizon Forbidden West looks to set a new benchmark for video game visuals. It looks as though the game will focus heavily on water traversal, in addition to featuring new robots. A robot mammoth is seen roaming the wilds and — bizarrely — a gigantic robot turtle?
Hard to glean too many details but the game seems to be set in a brand new area, with a brand new threat that could affect the ability of the planet to sustain life. Aloy, the main character from the original returns, of course and is shown doing Aloy things: Shooting a bow, climbing mountains, riding her robot horse.
Earlier this year, Sony announced that Zero Dawn would be. No timeline was given for when the sequel will hit the PS5.
