In this video, the director of the title, Mathijs de Jonge, talks about various aspects such as the central plot, the game world and some of the changes that will take place in this respect to Horizon Zero Dawn.
Thanks to the power of the SSD, Horizon Forbidden West will “practically” have no loading screens, no matter if you activate fast travel or load a game from a certain point in history, you will have the opportunity to experience this adventure in seconds.
The Game Features
Horizon Forbidden West is the 2017 sequel to video game Horizon: Zero Dawn, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world that has been invaded by wild machines that mimic nature.
According to de Jonge’s comments, the name Forbidden West has its origin in a new border present in the game. It extends from Utah to the Pacific Ocean. As Aloy ventures into this unknown terrain, he will discover all kinds of settings, from deserts to ancient ruined cities.
Obviously, the new scenarios will also bring mysterious machines that lie in the depths of the sea or the highest part of the sky. Each of these new machines will have to be analyzed to find the best way to deal with them.
The game director also revealed that in this sequel, there would be new tribes. Some of them are peaceful but others very hostile, including one, in particular, that has found a way to use the machines as instruments of war.
If this were not enough, at Forbidden West Aloy also need to discover why your environment is slowly collapsing, with animals and vegetation dying and an increasingly chaotic climate.
Aloy’s task in this sequel will be to stop the “Red Blight,” which has infected the lands and endangers all animals and tribes of the Forbidden West.
On the other hand, the Horizon Forbidden West map will be larger than the original game. It will have several sections where we will have the opportunity to explore a lost civilization underwater, something we had already seen in the reveal trailer. Likewise, the game will have “dozens” of new machines, as well as more tribes, both peaceful and hostile.
Will the brave protagonist successfully accomplish her mission? We’ll have to wait a long time to find out. Although there is currently no specific release date, Horizon Forbidden West is coming to PlayStation 5 in 2021.
