Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Guerrilla Games in June 2020 announced a sequel to the 2017 PS4 hit game Horizon: Zero Dawn, called Horizon: Forbidden West. The open-world action RPG will launch for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 later this year.
A Guerrilla Games spokesperson in an interview with GamesRadar has teased the "gameplay and storytelling possibilities" in the world that will be explored in the new game.
"We're so excited to spend more time in this world, expanding its lore and continuing Aloy's journey," said the spokesperson. "There are so many gameplay and storytelling possibilities in this universe and we can't wait to explore them further in Horizon Forbidden West."
"Part of what made the machine combat in Horizon Zero Dawn so satisfying was the puzzle-solving element in each encounter," the spokesperson added. "What is this machine's attack pattern? What are its weaknesses? Which strategies are most successful? There was the harsh reality of stumbling upon machines that you weren't quite ready to take on.
"Our reveal trailer showed players they can look forward to things they've never seen before, but we'd like to leave it at that for now and preserve as much of that satisfaction for players to discover for themselves."
