Horizon Zero Dawn is fondly remembered for its fascinating post-apocalyptic setting and the bizarre robotic creatures who inhabit it, but the game’s terrific story and range of different characters were also big standouts. For the sequel, Forbidden West, we’re anticipating that to similarly be the case, and so today’s latest featurette from PlayStation introducing the cast behind those characters is of special interest.
Below you’ll hear from Ashly Birch (Aloy) about her experience working on set, and her impressions of Aloy as a character. There are especially interesting comments about the nature of Aloy’s relationship with Sylens, which was a particularly interesting dynamic in the first game.
Speaking of Sylens, you’ll hear from Lance Reddick about his love of playing Sylens, the egomaniac intellect who you’re never quite sure is friend or foe throughout the first game.
There are also comments from several of Forbidden West’s other main characters, including the voices behind Kotallo, Tilda, Varl, Erand, and many more.
For more details on some of the characters in today’s featurette, you can check out assets released earlier this week focusing on the story and the characters that Aloy will meet in Forbidden West.
