Horizon Forbidden West is a 2022 action role-playing game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The game, which is a follow-up to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn, is set in a post-apocalyptic version of the Western United States that is recovering from an extinction event brought on by a rogue robot swarm. With ranged and melee weapons, the player can fight hostile machine creatures in the open world while completing quests.
Players assume control of Aloy, a hunter in a world populated by dangerous, animalistic machines. She explores the mysterious Forbidden West, a post-apocalyptic version of the Western United States that includes the states of California, Nevada, and Utah. The world map is larger than the one featured in the previous game, Horizon Zero Dawn. New underwater discoveries, improvements to combat using the Valor Surge system, free-form climbing, and tools like the Shieldwing, Focus Scanner, Diving Mask, and Pullcaster have all brought significant improvements to exploration.
