After some delay, Horizon Forbidden West officially arrives on PS4 and PS5 this Friday. The anticipated sequel expands on the original game in almost every sense, but is it enough to lure you back?
Horizon Forbidden West, as the name suggests, takes Aloy to the Western regions of the game’s post-post apocalyptic United States. There, she’ll meet new warring tribes, and take on plenty of new and intimidating monsters – all set in a lush world full of dense detail.
Not only has the game’s verticality been improved, with more climbable surfaces and an easier way to identify them, Forbidden West digs deep underground and underwater, with many more areas Aloy can now explore beyond what’s visible on the surface.
