Forbidden West Horizon It’s just under a month away from coming to PlayStation 4 and PS5, and Sony is ramping up its marketing effort with a trailer that sheds some light on the sequel’s story. The video is unsurprisingly packed with gorgeous visuals, offering some details on what appears to be a solid expansion of Horizon Zero Dawnrich history.

“People are suffering. Soon, they will starve to death”, says protagonist Aloy (Ashly Burch) at the beginning of the trailer. “The machines, meant to help us, are out of control. I have to find a way to fix everything. The answer lies somewhere in the Forbidden West.” We soon learn that in that part of the world, war is the order of the day, so Aloy clearly has another difficult journey ahead.

Along with some familiar faces like Varl and Erend, there are some new characters in the trailer – both friendly and hostile. Angela Bassett plays one of the antagonists, Regalla. She is a rebel leader who “seeks to kill all those who have harmed her” and has the ability to control machines, granted to her by a returning character. The three-minute clip ends with a glimpse of a mysterious character named Tilda. Counted Guerrilla Games Game Informer at that The Matrix star Carrie-Anne Moss plays her.

Of course, some of the machines Aloy will face also appear in the clip. Among them is a terrifying giant snake-rattlesnake hybrid called Slitherfang, which can spew jets of acid towards you.

Overall, the trailer offers another tantalizing look at a long-awaited game. Given that an unfinished build was leaked earlier this month, fans had better be careful to avoid spoilers first. Forbidden West Horizon arrives on February 18th.
