Horizon Call of the Mountain will launch alongside the PlayStation VR2 headset on February 22, 2023, Guerrilla Games confirmed today in a new post on its official site that advertises how its VR spin-off will be available through the PlayStation Store as part of a standalone edition (now available for pre-order) or PlayStation VR2 Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle, the latter of which includes the necessary hardware for $599.99.
A new pre-order trailer that Guerrilla released to accompany the announcement teases some of the visuals and action sequences that PS VR2 owners can expect to see in the game, which does not star Aloy but Ryas, a former warrior belonging to the Shadow Carja, a splinter tribe that was initially introduced in Horizon Zero Dawn.
From a Guerrilla Games post:
In Horizon Call of the Mountain, you step into the shoes (and put on the gloves) of Ryas, a former Shadow Carja Warrior searching for redemption. Haunted by a difficult past and scouted for a dangerous task, Ryas has been offered freedom only in exchange for investigating a new threat to the Sundom. A master at climbing and archery, he will need to utilize all of his skills to survive the perilous journey for answers.
New and old Horizon characters, including Aloy herself, will cross paths with Ryas to aid him in his quest to uncover the secret threat. Being equipped for any situation is vital to Ryas’ success, and throughout Horizon Call of the Mountain you’ll come across weapons and tools you’ll need to master to survive against the mighty machines you’ll meet along the way.
