Horizon Forbidden West Release Date; Play Station 5 Game
Horizon Forbidden West is the most awaited upcoming sequel of the Horizon Zero Dawn, which was declared during Sony’s PS5 games event in June. In PS5, Horizon Forbidden West continues with Aloy’s story, and takes her to America’s wild frontier, which could be seen in the trailer which heavily suggests that we will be able to dive underwater this new series. During Sony’s PS5 event live stream in September, the developers did not reveal much about the game, but we already know about the open world game’s potential.
What was revealed, though, was that a PS4 version of the game would be coming in 2021. Horizon Zero Dawn was able to sell over 10 million copies on PS4, a sequel that always seemed like a dead cert. Guerrilla Games is also returning to the PS5.
Horizon Forbidden West Release Date and Features
The Horizon Forbidden West release date has not yet been announced by the developers, but they revealed that the game will be released exclusively for the PS5 in 2021. The game will also be available on PS4 which means you don’t need to change your PS for playing the game.
Sony and Guerrilla Games released the first trailer of the game at an event on 11 June 2021 at the PS5 games reveal. The trailer was a three-minute glimpse which depicted varied landscapes which you’ll explore in the second game, and it also gave us an idea about machines you can expect to fight (like mammoths and alligators). From the trailer, it could be concluded that the game will be heavily based on underwater gameplay.
The director Mathjis de Jonge explains the sequel -Horizon Forbidden West Game” – during a dev diary video from Guerrilla Games.
“With the PS5’s SSD, there will be virtually no loading screens,” Jonge said in the video. “In this game, Horizon Forbidden West, when you open up the map and travel fast from one point to the other, or restart from a new checkpoint ,everything will be super fast. When you boot up the game, you’re right there in the action.”
The final date of the release of the game has not yet been announced by the developers but they have revealed that the game will be launched in the year 2021 as a part of the Play Station 5.
