Horizon Forbidden West is one of the most anticipated action role-playing games of the year. There is a lot to break down with such a sizable leap in terms of world size and gameplay, and production values. Many exciting new elements will be revealed, including superb new combat and traversal tools that Aloy will have. 

The story follows the battle with Hades in Zero Dawn and thinks that Aloy and Friends would be enjoying their peaceful rest. A new threat has begun sweeping away the land in the form of a plague that destroys everything. The cause is that Aloy travels to the forbidden west and encounters tons of new threats, both human and machine. Now, what will happen to their ally to the upcoming battle they should be able to pass?

Horizon Forbidden West Release Date

The sequel to the critically-acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn will be released on February 18, 2022. It will be available on PS5 and PS4. In addition, the game was due to release in 2021 with Playstation boss Jim Ryan. However, during Gamescom 2021, Sony confirmed that Horizon Forbidden West was delayed until February 2022. This caused the game to be released in the first quarter of 2022. 

What is Horizon Forbidden West All About

Game director Mathijs de Jonge said that the global pandemic caused the game’s delay. “It’s no surprise that our teams were hugely impacted by the global pandemic. We have been adjusting to new workflows, protocols, and other challenges while keeping our teams safe and prioritizing a healthy work and life balance”. He said in his Playstation Blog interview. 

During round two of Alo’s expected death quest, you should expect more of the same as laid out in the first game. It will introduce us to new weapons, friends, abilities, foes, and robotic dinosaur baddies. The game is also one of the most anticipated upcoming PS5 games this year in any event.
