If you’ve already booted up Horizon Forbidden West, you’ll know that the game is one hell of a looker. And it looks as gorgeous on PS4 as it does on PS5, somehow. But if all the work the Decima Engine is doing to make Aloy’s latest adventure look mouth-watering is still, somehow, leaving you underwhelmed, don’t fret; you can see one of the game’s trademark machines in real life, if you want to.
To celebrate the arrival of the game after a few well-documented delays, machines have been appearing in locations around the real world including – with one appearing right here near VG247’s home offices, leaping into reality at London Waterloo Station.
The Clawstrider that’s probably just got off a Jubilee Line train to try and make an ill-advised connection to the Northern Line – or something – is a fast and agile machine found within the Forbidden West, when it’s not commuting on a blustery Monday morning. The impressive take on the fictional robotic animal stands at 3.5 meters tall. And it’s just one of many machines that has made its way into the real world.
