The first gameplay footage from Sony’s highly anticipated PlayStation-exclusive game Horizon Forbidden West has been released. The images shared at the State of Play event attract attention especially with their visual quality. You can watch 14 minutes of 4K footage recorded on PS5 below.
Horizon Forbidden West comes with a lot of innovation compared to the first game of the series. In the published images, we see new mechanics such as our main character Aloy diving underwater with a diving mask and opening a sail wing and floating in the air. It also seems that significant improvements have been made in combat mechanics against humans and machines.
Horizon Zero Dawn, which debuted in 2017, has sold more than 10 million copies, making it one of the most successful games on PlayStation 4. Forbidden West, the sequel to Zero Dawn, is also expected to show great success.
The release date of Horizon Forbidden West is not yet clear. Sony said last year that the game will be released in 2021, but no exact date is given at the moment. It will likely be delayed to 2022.
