Sony treats fans to a 14-minute gameplay of Horizon Forbidden West in their latest State of Play program

In their latest State of Play presentation, Sony showed off the world of Horizon Forbidden West through a 14-minute gameplay video. In the footage, we can see the game's protagonist Aloy embarked on a mission to rescue Erend, her friend who has been captured by raiders. She is seen fighting these raiders and also animal-like machines called Clawstriders and Tremortusks.

Aloy uses a variety of weapons like a spear, bow, and adhesive grenades to slow enemies down from advancing. These weapons can also be upgraded at a workbench. To traverse through the colorful environment of Horizon Forbidden West, Aloy uses a 'Pullcaster' to climb up walls; her 'Shieldwing' hang glider allows a safe drop from heights, and she also uses a diving mask to explore deep waters.

Horizon Forbidden West is being developed exclusively for the PlayStation consoles. The game will take full advantage of PS5's hardware like ray-tracing, DualSense controller's features like adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, and more. Fans will expect Horizon Forbidden West to be at the same level, if not better than its prequel Horizon Zero Dawn. 

Horizon Forbidden West release date

Horizon Forbidden West is an upcoming action-adventure game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is scheduled to release sometime this year. In the blog post, Guerrilla’s Ben McCaw said "We don’t have an exact release date yet, but development is on track and we’ll have an update for you very soon." The game will be launched on Sony's PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
