Here's everything you need to know about Horizon forbidden west.

Horizon Forbidden West is the long-awaited follow-up to 2017's sci-fi RPG, Horizon Zero Dawn. Developed by Guerrilla Games, the first installment was a mix of the natural world and robot dinosaurs, and we expect more of the same from the sequel.

If you are interested in knowing the release date of Horizon Forbidden West, take a look at the gameplay or just check if your console will be able to run it, then you are in the right place. We've gathered the latest trailers, news and important information in one convenient place for you.

With lush jungles, underwater coral reefs (you can swim through) and a post-apocalyptic San Francisco, Horizon forbidden west looks impressive in resolution 4K, and the new climbing, diving, and sliding mechanics will be as smooth as you want the 60 frames per second

Developers promised exciting haptic controller feedback Dualense to give the feeling that you are actually pulling the bowstring, and or mighty SSD do PS5 will make loading screens a thing of the past.

Here's everything you need to know about Horizon Forbidden West: release date, gameplay, etc.


Horizon Forbidden West is scheduled to be released in late 2021 on PlayStation 5.

This was Sony's original release date, and although tell the editor that appears to be “on track” to meet this release date, things are still not “right”.

We will likely have a more concrete release date for Horizon Forbidden West later in the year.

The Horizon Forbidden West trailer shows you everything you need to know about the game's general themes, ideas, and vibes. Protagonist Aloy is on a mission to stop the rot that is killing her country and perverting the natural beauty of post-apocalyptic America.

The story puts the environment front and center, which makes perfect sense as the open world looks stunning. You can't forget about robot dinosaurs, of course, but it's safe to say that the natural world is the focus here.

The gameplay shows a lot of new additions from the first game, most notably the underwater section. Swimming was somewhat limited in the Zero dawn, but the addition of proper diving mechanics allows Guerrilla Games to add a whole new beautiful environment for you to explore.

Aloy can also fight, and climbing looks like it has been significantly improved. She also has a tech glider for when she's jumping from great heights (think Breath of the Wild).

In addition to the mechanics, the game trailer also gives us a glimpse of a giant mechanical mammoth, which is great.


Horizon forbidden west will be released on PS4, so those of you who haven't been able to get your hands on Sony's latest console don't have to worry about missing that.


Horizon Zero Dawn was released for PC three years after its initial release on PlayStation 4. That could potentially happen with the sequel, but at this point we have little to go on.


Horizon Zero Dawn received The Frozen Wilds DLC about six months after the base game was released. While we don't have any news about Horizon Forbidden West DLC at this time, we'll keep this page updated if we hear any rumors.

That's all you need to know about Horizon forbidden west. Be sure to check back to stay up to date with development.
