Horizon Forbidden West: How to Use Photo Mode

Horizon Forbidden West is the most visually beautiful game you’re likely to play this year. Its open world is incredibly detailed, and the various components of machines have been meticulously crafted so you can literally point at them on your screen like Leo in that meme in amazement. All of the character models look near photorealistic, too, so chances are you’re going to want to take plenty of photos to remember your epic adventure by. Thankfully, Horizon Forbidden West’s photo mode is rather extensive and can help take a great screenshot to the next level with its wealth of options. So let’s dive right into them.

Using Photo Mode in Horizon Forbidden West

To use Photo Mode, press the Options button on your controller to access the pause menu and select ‘Photo Mode.’
