Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerilla Games announced today that the much-awaited Horizon Forbidden West for PS5 has finally gone gold, which means that the development process is complete and is ready for mass production.
Horizon Forbidden West is the sequel to the award-winning Horizon: Zero Dawn that debuted on PS4 back in 2017 and later on PC via Steam. Additionally, the PlayStation Blog shared some footage of Horizon Forbidden West running on PS4 Pro.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Sony:
Join Aloy as she braves the Forbidden West – a majestic but dangerous frontier that conceals mysterious new threats.
Explore distant lands, fight bigger and more awe-inspiring machines, and encounter astonishing new tribes as you return to the far-future, post-apocalyptic world of Horizon.
The land is dying. Vicious storms and an unstoppable blight ravage the scattered remnants of humanity, while fearsome new machines prowl their borders. Life on Earth is hurtling towards another extinction, and no one knows why.
It’s up to Aloy to uncover the secrets behind these threats and restore order and balance to the world. Along the way, she must reunite with old friends, forge alliances with warring new factions and unravel the legacy of the ancient past – all the while trying to stay one step ahead of a seemingly undefeatable new enemy.
Horizon Forbidden West will be available for both PS4 and PS5 on February 18. Check back with us near the release date for our review coverage. Stay tuned.
