During that time Gamescom’s opening night live showcase, Forbidden Horizon in the West Game developer Guerrilla revealed the long-awaited sequel release date has been delayed. Forbidden Horizon in the West is currently set to premiere on February 18 after originally scheduled to premiere this holiday season.
In the sequel to the Horizon series, players will continue to play the protagonist of Horizon Zero Dawn: Hello. The threat in her latest adventure is a strange new red animal that seems to kill everything in its path, saving the giant cyborgs that inhabit Earth.
The game is also moving to a new location, one that should be familiar to anyone living on the West Coast of the United States. Forbidden Horizon in the West will transport players to a post-apocalyptic version of San Francisco, complete with the still-existing Golden Gate Bridge. Players will be able to adventure through the ruined city and swim through its now pristine waters. The game will also use PlayStation 5’s next-generation hardware, with Forbidden Horizon in the West Game director Mathijs De Jonge said, “With the added power of PS5, we can make the world even more detailed, more vivid, more immersive.”
Players will also have access to loads of new equipment in Forbidden Horizon in the West. While there’s no complete list, a recent State of Play event focusing on the game revealed that Aloy will gain access to a grappling hook, a restorer, and a glider that helps get back to Link’s in Breath of the Wild.
Along with the release date for Forbidden Horizon in the West, Guerrilla Games reveals that next-gen patch enables 60 fps gameplay for Horizon Zero Dawn Now available on PlayStation 5.
