Guerrilla Games has shared a new story trailer for the PS5 version of Horizon Forbidden West that proves its post-apocalyptic sequel will be far more beautiful than its predecessor.
Starting off with a disclaimer that confirms the footage was captured on a PS5, the trailer teases Aloy’s new epic quest into the Forbidden West, an uncharted and dangerous region that was teased in the original game. It offers glimpses of returning favorites such as Varl and Erend, as well as new companions such as Zo, Alva, and Kotallo.
“Today we’re proud to present our new story trailer, which offers an exciting peek at what lies in store for Aloy and her friends as they venture into the Forbidden West,” Ben McCaw, Guerrilla’s narrative director, wrote for the PlayStation Blog.
“On top of that, we’re thrilled to show you our new key art, pitting Aloy’s crew against Regalla, her rebels, and some of the most dangerous machines the west has to offer. It also features Sylens, Hekarro, the Chief of the Tenakth tribe, and Tilda, a mysterious new character with a special connection to the ancient past.”
Horizon Forbidden West will be released for the PS5 and PS4 on Friday, February 18. The Regalla Edition of the game, which includes statues of the Tremortusk and Aloy, has managed to sell out at most retailers despite its $259.99 price.
