Today Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerrilla Games finally revealed the first gameplay of the upcoming Horizon Zero Dawn sequel Horizon Forbidden West.
We start with a cutscene setting the stage and we immediately get reunited with heroine Aloy.
Yet, we quickly move on to gameplay as we are treated to the gorgeous environments of the forbidden west. The machines also are showcased almost immediately, and we get to see raiders riding them.
Traversal certainly appears to have been kicked up a notch, and the footage showcases Aloy as she swims underwater to escape the machines in hot pursuit. Of course, there are plenty of dangers in the water as well.
We’re also treated to a look at the massive Tremortusk and a very familiar location, San Francisco, where we see that Aloy can glide and ride the aggressive machines as well.
The video culminates with an epic fight against the Tremortusk, and the larger machines certainly haven’t lost their terrifying power compared to those that appeared in the original game.
At the end of the gameplay, we’re left with more questions as a storm approaches.
