Guerrilla Games released a re-cut version of the debut trailer for Horizon Forbidden West, adding comments from game director Mathijs de Jonge. While you don’t have to ask us to watch the gorgeous trailer another time, De Jonge has dropped in a few new tidbits about the title, including that the first-party studio is aiming for a 2021 release.
The first Horizon game on the PlayStation 4 was amazing looking, and Guerrilla aims to raise the series’ high benchmark on the PS5 as Aloy explores the diverse world. Furthermore, the upcoming system’s solid state drive will allow for “virtually no loading screens,” whether that’s booting into the game, during fast travel, or for restarts.
As beautiful as the West is, its ecosystem is dangerous and out of control, adding another formidable challenge to Aloy’s quest as she encounters new tribes and enemies.
